An unusual plea from the creator of Breaking Bad to fans: Please stop tormenting the actual people who live in Walter White's home by throwing pizza on their roof. In a podcast for spinoff Better Call Saul, Vince Gilligan explains that fans are trying to recreate a scene from Season 3 in which White, aka Bryan Cranston, throws a pizza in frustration onto the roof of his garage, reports the Daily Dot. Enough already, says Gilligan.

“Let me tell you, there is nothing original or funny or cool about throwing a pizza on this lady’s roof,” he says. “It’s just not funny, it’s been done before, you’re not the first." The residents of the Albuquerque home are actually fine with people gawking at the house, he adds, but not with the pizza stunt. Eater notes that this isn't the first food-related effect from the show. A restaurant featured in one episode saw an uptick in sales of table-side guacamole after it played a role in a tense scene. (Aaron Paul says he'd like his Breaking Bad character to show up on Better Call Saul.)
