AP is saying it's real, placed by a fan. It was a paid ad rather than an actual obit.

It was really in the ABQ Journal. The guy who posted it scanned it himself (he's a member of a podcast group there). Someone ELSE sent it to Gawker later in the day.

http://gawker.com/breaking-bad-fans-...que-1441130049

Full page


ABQ Journal article about it.

I told someone on Facebook, it would have been better if they had used the picture from "Flynn's" original Save Walter White website.

That's the thing with Breaking Bad I found - they use real URLs and real phone numbers - no fake URLs that won't work, nor 555 phone numbers.

Did people actually try to call those phone numbers to see what would happen? I would guess it would lead to a studio-run message or something...

They've talked about that on the podcast. Actors or crew would often answer when people called those numbers.

They used to do this with 24. They would put a real phone number on the caller ID and people would call and talk to cast and crew members.

I like when they use real numbers.

Not that I would call one, but as soon as they say "555" I know it's fake and it takes me out of the world they are creating - you know what I mean?

In the movie Contact, there's a scene where Palmer Joss gives Jodi Foster's character a phone number that's written on a scrap of paper, or maybe it was a bar napkin. I remember being so surprised when we saw that scene - it was our phone number at the time.

Also: in the first season of Supernatural, Sam and Dean are looking for their father and in one episode his phone number is mentioned. Calling the number was actually the start of a whole Alternate Reality Game.

Did you get any phone calls?

Anyone who has 567-8309 gets a lot from the song...

So, did anyone actually call those Breaking Bad numbers? I've always wondered how long those things stay up before they're canceled...

How often do obituaries give the cause of death, much less as a gunshot wound? It should have said, "Passed suddenly, after a long illness."

I've seen several recently that gave cause of death. The ones that are specific is usually cancer.

Well, if it's any consolation, tonight we get TWO hours of Low Winter Sun!

OK, it's no consolation to me, either.

Next week is Walking Dead, so that's something, at least...

Thank god! Walking Dead coming will help. Low Winter Sun not so much.

Okay, I can not watch AMC Sunday night for one week.

Ditto. I checked scheduled recordings and there is only Boardwalk Empire and Homeland and Low Winter Sun.

Time to pick up again on binge watching from VoD and/or Netflix.
