When a television show becomes a cult favorite, it’s going to attract some dedicated fans. Witness what’s happening in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in the wake of Vince Gilligan’s massive television successes. A quiet neighborhood is now the center of a Breaking Bad tourism industry, but it’s having terrible repercussions for the people that live there. The house that played Walter White’s house in Breaking Bad is being pelted with pizzas, and the show’s creator wants it to stop.
“There is nothing original or funny or cool about throwing a pizza on this lady’s roof,” said Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan said on a podcast about his new show Better Call Saul. “It’s been done before. You’re not the first…People live in these houses, and they are trying to go about their lives day in and day out like we all are.”
There are a lot of other ways to enjoy the neighborhood, and the home’s owners–who have lived there for 41 years–don’t mind fans taking pictures and posing and whatnot provided they’re respectful. Apparently blue meth candy is okay, but tossing pizzas is a step too far.
