‘Breaking Bad’ House Fenced Off To Stop Pizza Being Thrown On Roof

A simple property in Albuquerque served as the centre - the nucleus, if you will - of the total shitstorm of events in AMC's brilliant show Breaking Bad. It's where we witnessed Walt and Skyler evolve from a normal family into one with bitter, ugly tensions.

But that house actually exists in New Mexico and it's been attracting fans ever since the programme (arguably one of the greatest TV shows of all time) was created in 2008. While most people would be fine with taking a selfie in front of the famous doors, other people have been hellbent on recreating one scene in particular.

Despite Walt (Bryan Cranston) getting a pizza (which looks like it could feed about three families) to help bridge a growing divide with his wife Skyler (Anna Gunn), it turns out she's not having any of it and tells him to leave. But as he returns to his car, Walt tosses the delicious-looking meal onto the roof. What a waste, I'd have eaten at least some of that.

The scene was a mildly funny blip in the otherwise dark, twisted crime drama that was Breaking Bad. But that short segment has become such a cult favourite moment that people have been throwing pizzas on the actual house.

Now it appears the owners have had enough, as they decided to put up a six-foot high fence in order to to deter any future pizza tossers. Their daughter Joanna Quinta told KOB4: "We feel like we can't leave because when we, do something happens and that's ridiculous."

She adds that even the tourists who don't throw pizzas can still be pretty annoying: "They feel the need to tell us to close our garage, get out of the picture, you know - tell us what to do on our own property."

The issue has even reached Breaking Bad's creator Vince Gilligan, who told the Better Call Saul Insider Podcast: "The lady who lives in that house - she and her husband are the two nicest people in the world, and they deserve to be treated well.

"But lately, we're hearing from her that folks are wandering onto her property and they are being rude to her when she comes out and basically says, 'You're on my property', and they're throwing pizzas on roofs and stuff like that.

"There is nothing original, or funny, or cool about throwing a pizza on this lady's roof. It's been done before - you're not the first."

Hopefully that will stop the pizzas from being thrown onto the roof, but you never know how devoted fans of TV shows will react in scenarios like this- just ask Rick And Morty's fanbase.
