UO x Breaking Bad

Yo! We heard from Badger that Jesse Pinkman (aka Aaron Paul) will be at our San Diego store (665 Fifth Ave.) on July 20 signing autographs. Awesome, right? If you're not in San Diego, don't worry. You can still get in on the Aaron Paul action! Some very lucky Twitter followers will get a shoutout by Aaron, on camera, with his trademark Jesse Pinkman "BITCH!" at the end. All you have to do is tweet us a personal accomplishment using #callmebitch for a chance, bitch.
