Every actor has to start somewhere! Before winning Emmys for his work on “Breaking Bad” or a Tony for playing President of the United States Lyndon B. Johnson in “All the Way,” and even before he starred on “Malcolm in the Middle,” Bryan Cranston was dressing up in a skunk costume for a 1987 soap commercial.

He’s a stinky skunk named Harry before his wife hands him a bar of Shield. Cranston’s reaction to seeing himself in the mirror alone makes this worth the watch!
