Sept. 29 (UPI) -- Less than a day ahead of "Breaking Bad's" series finale, Aaron Paul appeared in character as the Jesse Pinkman, Walter White's burnout sidekick, in "Saturday Night Live's" season opener.

As a guest speaker during one of Barack Obama's healthcare rallies, Pinkman explained why the country needed Obamacare.

"I had this friend and he got sick. Like, cancer sick," the 34-year-old star said. "So, he did what any of us would have done. He started cooking meth."

Pinkman shows up around the 4:30 mark.

Paul later appeared in a video short about "e-Meth."

Tina Fey hosted the 39th season premiere of "SNL," along with musical guest Arcade Fire.

"Arcade fire and SNL!!! I love you so much!!! Thanks for having me," Paul wrote on Instagram after the show.
