If you never got around to watching Breaking Bad (aka Malcolm’s Dad Goes Crazy), there’s an episode in the third season called “Caballo Sin Nombre” that features a scene of Walter White getting pissed off and angrily whipping a pizza onto the roof of his house. Since they filmed Breaking Bad in a real neighborhood in New Mexico, fans have apparently been rolling up to Walter White’s old house and throwing pizzas on the roof as some kind of dumb reverse souvenir.
Unfortunately the creator of Breaking Bad, Vince Gilligan, isn’t thrilled that there’s always a pile of rancid food on some poor lady’s roof. Vince recently hissed at the pizza tossers during a podcast interview about his new show Better Call Saul (via NY Daily News), and told them to cut that shit out:
“There is nothing original or funny or cool about throwing a pizza on this lady’s roof. It’s just not funny, it’s been done before. You are not the first. We love our fans; I don’t love those fans. I don’t even consider them fans, I consider them jagoffs.”
JAGOFFS! He also added that the people who live in the house are the “nicest people in the world” who are more than happy to let fans take pictures. Vince Gilligan was joined by Jonathan Banks (aka badass grandpa Mike Ehrmantraut), who said he’d “hunt down” the pizza bandits before adding:
“If you…are doing that, straight your ass up man, because it’s not cool…you don’t treat people that way.”
Both urged fans to take down the license plate numbers of anyone creeping around the Breaking Bad house with a random pizza box. Vigilante Pizza Justice! My favorite kind.
Even though I don’t live in that New Mexico pizza roof house, I’m still pissed as hell at those pizza bandits. How could anyone claim they’re a Breaking Bad fan and waste a perfectly good pizza like that? Wasting pizza makes Jesse Pinkman cry.
