'Breaking Bad' Creator Wants Fans to Stop Throwing Pizzas on Walter White's House

"It's just not funny."

People just can't stop throwing pizzas at Walter White's house. White may be a fictional character from the hit show Breaking Bad, but the house — and the couple that live inside — are very real. Daily Dot writes that Vince Gilligan — the show's creator — stopped by the Better Call Saul Insider Podcast to put a stop to the madness. The Albuquerque, New Mexico house that was used for main character Walter White's home has apparently turned into "something of a tourist attraction" where people attempt to recreate scenes from the show.

"There is nothing funny or cool about throwing a pizza on this lady's roof."

In a famous scene from season three, White angrily tosses a box of pizza and a pie lands on the roof. Gilligan notes that the owners of the house "are fine with visiting the home" except for when people trespass onto the property "to throw pizzas on the roof." The owners often have to come outside to ask visitors to leave. Gilligan warns fans to never do it again: "Let me tell you, 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're not the first."

Other food-related scenes from Breaking Bad have also had an effect on fans. A restaurant featured in an episode of the show last August reported an increase in sales of a dish mentioned on the episode. The episode features an awkward waiter who tries to sell characters tableside guacamole. While he didn't get the characters to order it, he did inspire viewers to get in on the tableside guacamole action.
