'Breaking Bad' creator urges fans to stop throwing pizzas at Walter White's house

Remember Walt's angry pizza toss on "Breaking Bad"? It's one of the most iconic scenes from the show, and given the lack of illicit drugs or extreme violence, it's also one of the few that fans aren't afraid to recreate in the real world.

But there's just one problem: It seems fans aren't tossing pizzas at their own homes. The really devoted followers of the series are taking their pies all the way to Albuquerque to throw them at the very same house used in the show — a house that doesn’t belong to a fictional teacher-turned-meth-kingpin, but rather a real-life woman.

Walter White takes out his frustrations takeout style on "Breaking Bad."

"Let me tell you, there is nothing original or funny or cool about throwing pizzas on this lady's roof," show creator Vince Gilligan said during a discussion on the latest "Better Call Saul Insider Podcast." "It is just not funny. It's been done before. You're not the first."

Jonathan Banks, who plays his "Breaking Bad" character Mike Ehrmantraut on "Better Call Saul" now, agreed.

"If I catch you doing it, I will hunt you down," Banks warned podcast listeners.

According to Gilligan, the owner tolerates respectful fans touring the area and allows photographs, so long as she and her neighbors aren't disturbed.

"She is the sweetest lady in the world, and if you are getting on her nerves, you are doing something seriously [expletive] wrong," he stressed.

Besides, the best way to relive the scene is simply to watch it again — and again. It never gets old!
