What is the viral Skyler White sound on TikTok?

The Breaking Bad cinematic universe has spawned two series and a movie. Luckily, you don’t need much context to understand the viral sound uploaded by @mineralsmarie.

Skyler, a suburban housewife with no idea her husband Walter White is a drug dealer, confronts Walter’s much younger accomplice Jesse, warning him to stop selling marijuana to Walter.

Jesse’s deadpan “OK” response is hilarious because viewers know he’s completely innocent of that particular charge. The sound now has 85,000 videos associated with it.

“Me, who is most definitely the bad influence to my friends,” the caption read as he lip-synced Jesse’s “OK.”
