Interestingly, both men have experience working in the food service industry. Cranston worked as a waiter at a Polynesian restaurant, while Franco worked the drive-thru window at a McDonald’s.

“It was an adventure,” Franco recalled in the video, between long sips of milk to help with the spiciness. “I was a young actor. I would practice different accents on people. For whatever reason, at the time we had to wear purple McDonald’s hats. It was hard to get a date with that thing on, but I managed to do it. I remember I took a young lady to “Titanic” and then we went back to the McDonalds parking lot and we made out in the car.”
