Jim Romenesko got the scoop on how this came to be:
High school science teacher David Layman and other members of the “Unofficial Breaking Bad Fan Tour” Facebook group, paid for the Walter White death notice that appears on 4A in today’s Albuquerque Journal.
“I’ve been a humongous ‘Breaking Bad’ fan since the beginning,” says Layman, who notes that he has a student named Jesse. “I was actually in the pilot, and putting the obit in the paper was fitting, because the series was based in Albuquerque and it provides some of us some closure.”
And closure it is. Let us all now say, “Amen.”
One more laugh before the tears. A BB mash-up. Walter White sings "My Way". Think: Shatner doing "Rocket Man". Enjoy. http://t.co/wvdBmuw1QV
