With AMC’s Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul thriving, and hardcore fans spending time finding all the easter eggs and callbacks to the Emmy-winning show, it’s clear Walter White still has a ton of die-hard followers. But show creator Vince Gilligan is calling out some of those die-hards for throwing pizzas on the roof of the Albuquerque house where Breaking Bad was shot, and upsetting the nice lady who lives there.
On the Better Call Saul Insider Podcast, Gilligan and actor Jonathan Banks (who plays the same character, former Philly cop Mike Ehrmantraut, on Saul as he did on Bad) rip into the pizza pranksters, saying they aren’t real fans, and deserve to have some sense whipped into them.
“There is nothing original or funny or cool about throwing a pizza on this lady’s roof,” Gilligan said. “I don’t even consider them fans, I consider them jagoffs.”
“And if I catch you doing it, I will hunt you down,” Banks added.”If you’re a kid and you’re doing that, straighten your ass out.”
“At the very least, you’re a really spoiled kid, because what are you doing wasting pizza like that?”
Gilligan said that the lady is fine with tourists taking photos of the house off her property, and encouraged visitors to take down license numbers of anyone “acting like an asshole.”
There you have it, you stupid teens. The show’s creator and one of its stars think your pizza-throwing antics are terrible, and you’ve been disbarred as real fans. You would think Walter White’s demise would be reason enough to not do as he did, but apparently you needed a reminder.
