I would totally 20$ for this.

The best part will be when the coffin pops open and the assembled mourners are sprayed with bullets from a robotic M-60.

It bothers me that people are holding a burial for a fictional character, and selling tickets to boot. But they're doing the right thing with the profits.
 
2013-10-19 08:00:08 PM
I am sure no one will ever try to rob it for the stuff they place in the coffin.

This thing has been a massive boon for ABQ tourism. I'm not really surprised that they're milking it for everything they can.

All they need to do next is start selling blue meth.

Better than sitting through a real funeral.

Discovering a tree would be a boon for ABQ tourism.

Eh, not sure I could get behind something like that in an actual cemetary. Seems tasteless and disrespectful.

Now if they did something like going to the spot where Walt and Jessie do their first cook/where Hank and Gomez get wacked and "spread" Walt's ashes and place a plaque there, that'd be kind of cool.

Only place I had ever heard about Albuquerque before was in the old Bugs Bunny cartoons. I admit I thought the town was fictional.

From TFA: "Tickets sales for the burial, which is expected to draw 140 fans..."
and later in the article: "Walter White's home draws up to 10,000 cars full of fans a month..."

They expect only 140 fans to show up?  You have GOT to be kidding me - this is going to be the Woodstock of our time...

It's a sort of response to champaign socialism. Being a professional thrift store hunter I could give rich people safaris to bad parts of town.

I was prepared to offer a comment regarding a knock on the coffin, but your suggestion is superior.

There was that Partridge Family song as well.

When I think Albuquerque I think about seeing Bugs and Susan Dey inside a seedy hotel smoking blue meth.

It's probably a lot different IRL.

What music should be played for his funeral?

FTA: Those at the cemetery said the idea doesn't bother them.

To be fair, not very much bothers them.

That's what you get for being late to the party. At least they didn't tell you Jesse's the one who killed him.

No, they're just going to bury him alive for kicks.

But seriously, it is not confirmed that he dies on the show.

That's a good lie, because that'll mislead him and he'll be as shocked as the rest of us at Marie's final rampage.

It's pretty cool, but I can guarantee that it's only a matter of time before they have to remove the headstone due to vandalism. I mean, they've had to block off graves around various famous persons because people were destroying the tombstone/monument or the ones around them, either because they wanted a souvenir or because they just didn't give a fark while they were out sightseeing. That's not including the garbage left behind on site.

Proper monitoring can be done, but I don't think this town entirely realizes the full implication of this. It probably would've been better to have a mock funeral at the house itself or, like another farker said, at another local landmark associated with the show.

But it's over, let it go people.

$100,000 from the 140!? fans expected to attend. That's over $700 each.

I won't.

He was killed by Nazis but he killed them too. Jesse gets away.
