Cut on is an oxymoron.

Cut means to cease, or stop.

Something can be cut off, but not cut on.

TV commercial featuring Breaking Bad actor that says "Xbox On" turned on his XB1, which he wasn't using at the time.

I think.

I don't know what to make of this.

Are you trying to say when the man in the TV said "Xbox On" it turned your Xbox on?

He was watching TV. A commercial for the Xbox One starring Aaron Paul came on TV. The commercial triggered the "Xbox On" command and powered his Xbone on, so he had to turn it back off.

Or at least, that some slang is currently more regional than one might expect.

Most slang makes sense when you break it down.

The act of "cutting" something "on" makes absolutely none.

I just watched the commercial now again, and wanted to see if his voice did any voice commands on my console. When he says "Xbox record that", my xbox records a video.

This now explains why I had two videos uploaded yesterday of me just staring at the menu's on Watch Dogs.
