Before he won an Emmy for brilliantly playing Jesse Pinkman, Aaron Paul was just like every other working actor, trying to build a career one role at a time.

Just a year after getting his first acting credit on the TV movie “Even the Losers,” Paul starred in this 1999 Kellogg’s Corn Pops commercial where he plays a restless teen who just wants to have his breakfast instead of listening to his parents’ lecture. The 30-second spot features narration from the young actor, which may well be the first inkling of Paul’s vocal talents. He now showcases them on Netflix’s animated series, “BoJack Horseman.”
