Maybe your favorite Breaking Bad scene is the one where Jesse dances in his puffed-up hazmat suit. Or maybe it's the one where Gale's karaoke footage is brought to glorious light. But a lot of people latch especially hard onto the infamous pizza scene, wherein Walt rage-tosses a whole pie onto his roof. Unfortunately, they've taken it upon themselves to recreate that throw at the Whites' home, where a very nice couple with zero drug ties currently resides.
Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan brought the issue up on the Better Call Saul Insider Podcast while discussing his spin-off show. Obviously the house where Walt, Skyler, and the kids lived has turned into a tourist attraction since the series ended, and while the actual homeowners don't mind people taking photos, they've gotten pretty upset at rude fans who fight with them and hurl pizzas on the roof. Gilligan's not pleased either, and begged people to stop doing this. "There is nothing original or funny or cool about throwing a pizza on this lady's roof," he said. "We love our fans, but we don't love those fans. I don't even consider them fans."
And if his earnest request isn't enough to sway you, maybe Mike Ehrmantraut's threats will be. Jonathan Banks was also on the podcast to talk about his Better Call Saul episode, and swore to prospective pizza throwers, "If I catch you doing it, I will hunt you down." So seriously people, cut it out. You're wasting perfectly good pizza.
