Spoilers for the Breaking Bad finale if you haven't watched it in the two years since it aired. (What are you doing with your life?)

The man who knocks would have hit the nail on the head.

Breaking Bad Creator Vince Gilligan joined Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman as they recreated the final, bloody scene of the show.

You know the one — when Walt McGyvers an M60 machine gun in the trunk of his car to fire on an oscillating, remote-controlled mount. Then it kills everyone.

Savage and Hyneman reconstructed the set up for the most recent episode of MythBusters and it completely, incredibly, totally works.

Check it out:

The bullets actually tear through the car, through the side of the makeshift house and into all of the bad guys holding Jessie Pinkman hostage.

It's a big victory for Gilligan as well, due to the fact that Mythbusters had previously debunked two different scenarios from other Breaking Bad episodes.

It turns out you can't dissolve a tub through a bathroom floor with acid or knock out a room with a chunk of mercury fulminate.

But this. This works.

It is so, so awesome.

Hopefully Disney paid more than a cow to Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul creator Vince Gilligan for a revisionist Jack and the Beanstalk outline. Deadline Hollywood reported April 23 that Disney acquired the story, but that Gilligan's role with its production remains undefined.

"Gilligan has tapped Thomas Schnauz–who has won two Emmys writing for both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul–to write the script. Gilligan will eye it as a possible directing vehicle, but it's very early days on the project. Gilligan and Mark Johnson will produce."

Yes, it's pretty odd that the man best known for bringing crystal meth production to your tv set not only took a stab at the traditional children's tale, but additionally that Disney would get in bed with him. Maybe Gilligan can bring some new take on what Bryan Singer so recently attempted in 2013's Jack The Giant Slayer. Maybe not.

Let's wait and see!


Please Don't Throw Pizzas on Walter White's House

Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul Creator Vince Gilligan went on the Better Call Saul Insider podcast March 10 to ask loyal fans not to mimic their beloved anti-hero and chuck pizzas on his estranged house.
