‘Breaking Bad’ Creator Says: ‘Stop Throwing Pizza on Walter White’s House’
In what may sound like a bizarre news item to non-Breaking Bad fans, the popular AMC show’s creator asked fans to stop throwing pizza onto that poor lady’s roof. Apparently, in emulation of a famous scene from the show in which Walter White gets mad at his wife and flings pizza onto the roof, fans have been driving to the real-life location of Walter White’s house in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and throwing ‘za onto the roof. By the way, the house isn’t a set; it’s owned by a woman who has put in complaints to the local police about these not-so-welcome fandom pranks.
“… Let me tell you, there is nothing original or funny or cool about throwing a pizza on this lady’s roof… It’s not funny. It’s been done before. You’re not the first,” the show’s creator, Vince Gilligan, said during an episode of the Better Call Saul podcast.
Breaking Bad actor Jonathan Banks, whose character was a tough guy on the show, added “and if I catch you doing it, I will hunt you down.”
Yikes. Better keep the pizza to yourselves, BB fans, and munch on it while catching up on Better Call Saul, the spin-off of Breaking Bad.
