Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner was in attendance at a star-studded launch for the new, and final, season of Breaking Bad in Los Angeles on Sunday (August 11).


Turner attended the Bushmills-sponsored screening with his girlfriend, actress Arielle Vandenberg, at a private space in Venice, Los Angeles. Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul, who plays Jesse Pinkman on the cult show, was also at the event alongside a guest list which included Marilyn Manson, Dita Von Teese, Kellan Lutz, Kid Cudi, Sunny Mabrey, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and showrunner Vince Gilligan.

Breaking Bad returned to record ratings in the US on Sunday night. A massive 5.9 million viewers tuned in to watch the first instalment in the show's eight-episode concluding run – nearly double Breaking Bad's previous best ever audience of three million, which it posted during the first half of its fifth and final season last August (2012).

Meanwhile, Arctic Monkeys recently unveiled the trippy video for new single 'Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?'. The video, directed by Nabil, sees a drunk Turner leave the rest of the band behind in a bar to seek out a 4am booty call. As he travels down the road towards the house of the girl he is texting, he is fraught with highly-sexual hallucinations and encounters unsavoury characters.
