Family Living In Breaking Bad House Keep Getting Asked If Walter White Can Come Out
| Last updated
The people who live in the house from Breaking Bad are probably used to fans rocking up outside their home, but it seems the family find it particularly frustrating when people turn up to ask them if Walter White can come out – especially during the pandemic.
Like the show, the property is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and it's been attracting fans ever since Breaking Bad debuted in 2008.
In real life, however, the home belongs to the Padilla family, who have been there since 1973.
Frances – who sadly died in 2020 – and her husband Louis have had to put up with people throwing pizza onto their roof, eventually erecting a huge metal fence to stop the food slingers.
And daughter Joanne Quintana revealed that people weren’t even willing to keep their distance during the coronavirus pandemic.
In a rant on Facebook back in August 2020 – not long after star Bryan Cranston had tested positive for the virus – she wrote: “Okay Bryan Cranston made the announcement that he has the Covid.
“My question is why are people coming to the house he's not laid up here his character died in Breaking Bad.
“I have been flooded with tourist and people asking stupid questions like ‘Can he come out?’
“I'm like, ‘Seriously, would you want someone who has covid come out and stand next to you and take a picture? I don't think so.”
Last year, a viral video showed how the family are still getting harassed by fans, nearly 10 years after the original series concluded.
The video is shot from the perspective of a moving car, which passes by the family home as a voice from the vehicle shouts: "Hi."
The homeowner, sitting in the drive, replies: "What?"
"How are you?" the driver responds, to which the owner angrily shouts: "What the f*** do you want?"
Seemingly on the wind-up, the passenger replies: "I love you!"
The owner of the house is clearly fed up at this point, and concludes: "No you don't. Get out of here."
"Ok," says the driver.
However, tensions are clearly running high by this point.
"Such a liar," says the driver, again seemingly to annoy the homeowner.
"You're a liar," responds the owner.
The driver then takes the confrontation up a notch, saying: "You're a liar, you're a loser!"
The homeowner responds: "Little PT cruiser, get your a** out. F**k your dumba** video!"
The driver then references Breaking Bad and says: "Bye Joanne!"
The homeowner then makes her concluding remarks to the driver with a simple: "Shut the f*** up."
People on TikTok - where the video was first shared - were undecided as to whether the owner of the home actually enjoyed the confrontation.
One user said: "Honestly I think she just has fun doing it, and kinda just tries to be funny."
Another agreed: "No one will ever convince me that she doesn't enjoy all the attention."
Having been forced to erect a huge fence to keep overenthusiastic fans away, I somehow find it hard to believe she does.
A third user felt sorry for the home owner, writing: "It's crazy how people are hating on an old lady because she doesn't want random people going to her house."
