When fans get super into a movie or Tv demonstrate, they typically dress up as their favorite characters and hit up their local convention — in which case, the only victim of Hollywood’s seductive siren song is said fan’s wallet. But that’s only the normal level of obsession. When fandom hits Single White Female levels, on the other hand, we get entertaining and/ or depressing yarns like these …
# 6. The Breaking Bad Creator Asks Fan To Stop Throwing Pizza On Walt’s Roof
” Breaking Bad fans keep throwing pizza on someone’s roof” is a weird sentence to type, but a bunch of you know exactly what we’re talking about. If you don’t, there’s a famous scene in the show in which Walter White get pissed at his wife and throws a pizza over his own roof.
Toss a pizza in the air, and Emmys rain from the sky. It’s the law of television .
Hilariously, the pizza stayed there for several episodes, practically becoming a new character in the demonstrate. You know what’s not hilarious, though? When literally anybody else does it. When a bunch of drunk frat boys roll up to the very real New Mexico home and lob hot cheese pies at the roof, it’s not a gag; it’s trespassing and vandalism. If you do this, Breaking Bad inventor Vince Gilligan personally thinks you’re a prick, pizza-slinging guy.
“Aw crap, what am I gonna do with a pizza now? ” — a ogre
This “joke” got so out of control that performer Jonathan Banks( who plays the sexagenarian hitman Mike) threatened to “hunt down” those who did this. That’s an outcome the home’s owned is desperate to assure, judging from this sign 😛 TAGEND Although that’s exactly what someone secretly cooking meth would say .
At least some fans seem to have gotten the message and are determining less invasive ways to get their damn pizza roof photos.
“Thanks, but perhaps you should do some other scene, like getting dissolved in acid maybe.”
# 5. The Owner Of The Goonies House Becomes A Reluctant Hermit
You grab your Wheaties box and sit down to breakfast. You glance out the window at the clear and sunny morning … and then you see it. A man, his shirt pulled up to his chin, shaking his flabby belly all over your front yard. He is, without a doubt, 30 years old. Throughout the working day, more humen arrive, of all sizes and shapes, all pulling their shirts up and waggling their bellies. All of them, indisputably, 30.
This, the working day, every day .
This was the existence of the owner of the Goonies house. When she originally bought the home over 10 years ago, visits were few and far between, so she was more than happy to invite people inside for a quick tour at the time. But with the introduction of Twitter and the upcoming remaking of the 1980 s classic, unannounced visits increased dramatically — to the tune of thousands of belly-dancing 30 -somethings a day. To attain matters worse, the city officials themselves promoted this awkward behavior, to the chagrin of the unhappy homeowner.
Tired of the endless sea of visitors, the owner eventually walled herself away from the world, putting up giant blue tarps to hide her famous house and setting up signs trying to convey her sad side of the story.
“Please, pectin now brings me to tears.”
Apparently, overgrown children with an undying passion for ‘8 0s nostalgia assumed it was their privilege — nay, their right — to have unlimited access to this poor woman’s domicile. Above all, Goonies never tell grow up and stop watching kids’ movies.
# 4. People Keep Ghost-Hunting At The Conjuring House
Everybody loves a good scary tale, but nobody wants to live in one. Regrettably for the owners of the house featured in The Conjuring , that’s exactly what happened to them when their home suddenly became famous for being full of ghosts( according to a “based on real events” movie about two uncovered fraudsters, anyway ).
For months, the poor elderly couple endured interlopers traipsing through their yard searching for the souls of the dead they assumed must inhabit this peaceful British home, simply since they are insured it in a movie once. The fact that the people who’ve lived there for decades say that they’ve never seen a ghost didn’t seem to deter them. It’s not like they shot the movie there; the real place doesn’t even look like the situated they used.
“Holy shit, it’s a reptilian shapeshifter too! ”
The real terror here is being in your 70 s and constantly having flashlights shine through your windows at three in the morning. That’s heart-attack-inducingly scaring at any age, which is a potentially huge problem, considering the gentleman who resides in the house actually has a heart condition . If there isn’t a ghost there now, there might be at some point because of these assholes. The harried couple frequently had to break the news to hopeful fans that The Conjuring was just a movie and their house is just a house, only to have new visitors show up the following week. That’s worse than any curse Hollywood could think up.
When people weren’t peeping in the couple’s windows, the latter are calling the couple on the phone and uploading YouTube videos of their illegal tours of the home. Often, the poor homeowners had no idea the intruders had been present on their grounds until the videos showed up online.
Thankfully, The Cumjuring porn charade was filmed elsewhere .
But at least the elderly couple doesn’t have any impressionable young children … unlike the inhabitants of the Haunting In Connecticut home. In their case, people would barge up to the front doorway in order to tell the young ones living inside that their house was altogether haunted, because they’re not the ones who are gonna “re going to have to” calm down the calling little critters afterward.
“That’s right, supernatural things exist. Except Santa. He’s fake as hell.”
# 3. Sex And The City Fans Have Destroyed All Happiness
Despite all the hate spewed at Sarah Jessica Parker every time an Internet angel gets its fedora, Sex And The City was and still is a hugely popular Tv demonstrate. The first follow-up movie induced $57 million in its first weekend, while the show’s initial sale into syndication ran TBS $ 700,000 per episode . That’s enough to actually have sex with everyone in the city, we’re pretty sure.
Clearly, Carrie Bradshaw and her gal buddies are a hot commodity. So it only attains sense that Carrie’s swanky townhouse would be a piece of prime property if it were real. Which, of course, it wholly is 😛 TAGEND Unfortunately for the also-real people who live there .
After the film’s release in 2008, throngs of rabid fans traveled to Perry Street to treat an average neighborhood like it was a Disney World attraction. While the tours helped boost sales in local shops and bakeries, fans were so rude that they would litter the streets with cupcake liners after recreating that iconic scene in which Carrie and Miranda ate cupcakes on a bench. You know the one. No? Neither do we, but something tells us it was both sex and city as all fuck.
Practical use for a fanny pack #37: portable trashcan
This blatant disregard for Mother Earth got so out of hand that one neighborhood resident described the street as a “hellhole, ” while another took to sitting outside her apartment and calling “Idiot! ” at anyone who would listen, because she is the hero we deserve. Severely, if she was digitally be incorporated in every episode, we’d actually watch this show.
Eventually, the Perry Street renters won their hard-fought combat and had their street removed from the show’s tours. The cupcake zombies moved on to infect other regions of New York, eventually giving those people some peace. That is, until SJP started a new shoe line, and guess where she decided to promote it?
We’re no fashion experts, but a line of single shoes sounds kinda stupid. You usually require at least two .
Just when they guessed their lives were back to normal, Parker waltzed right back into them for an unauthorized photo shoot on the steps of the place she once called pretend-home — ignoring a “do NOT go on staircase please” sign the owners had to install. Maybe she didn’t see it? Yeah, that’s probably it. She wholly missed the sign while taking a picture of it.
Putting a chain around a place usually entails “please come here and mess up all our shit.”
# 2. The Person Who Maintain The Jersey Shore House Had To Repaint It On A Weekly Basis
This might come as a surprise to you, but it turns out that die-hard fans of Jersey Shore are various kinds of douchey. Not satisfied with simply taking horrible selfies in front of the house where Snookie slept, these super fans wanted to leave a part of themselves behind, marking up the walls with notes to the casting. The casting that only lived there for two months a year.
That’s what you get for unleashing “The Situation” on an unsuspecting nation .
They even took pieces of the house home with them, rending off chunks of the roof, walls, and whatever they could get their grubby thumbs on to ensure they had a permanent piece of television calamity history forever in their homes.That’s about as tasteful as taking some goop from the Chernobyl nuclear plant, and probably about as toxic.
The proprietors have clarified that they’re not liable for any bacterial warfare agents these people might catch as a result .
The house was meant to be rented out in the off-season, but the realty company had to pay for weekly maintenance and repainting in order to keep the place appearing decent. They also had to hire security to maintain away the throngs of coconut-oil-smelling vandals. While the demonstrate was in production, maintenance responsibilities fell to the show’s producers, but that gravy train derailed years ago. Then again, the owners charge $ 2,500 for a one-night remain in this perfectly average home, so perhaps they’ll was also able to get ahead after all.
# 1. The Mrs. Doubtfire House Had A Perpetual Shrine To Robin Williams In Its Yard
The world was stunned when we lost the paragon of childhood comedy last year. And naturally, fans felt the need to gather together to comfort one another through their shared loss. Regrettably for one 79 -year-old man, hundreds of them decided to band together outside his San Francisco home — the house induced forever famous for being visible for a few minutes in Mrs. Doubtfire .
On the news of Robin Williams’ occur, fans met outside the home to pile heaps of blooms, images, and movie memorabilia in loving memory of their favorite wacky performer. The problem is that the pilings grew so high that it became literally impossible to leave the house via the front door.
Built-in zombie/ Jehovah’s Witness/ Avon Lady deterrent, though. So, upside .
This year, the front doorway remained accessible, but heartbroken fans are still coming to scribble all over the sidewalk and rock garden instead.
Even the Smurfs were sad about Williams .
In spite of it all, the homeowner( who is a retired surgeon) has never said a single denigrate remark about the monuments and never-ending sea of fans. But how could he, right? You can’t be the guy who says, “Walking out my doorway to a shrine for a beloved dead performer various kinds of blows sometimes, you guys” without immediately being branded an asshole for life. On top of everything, he had to deal with a disgruntled ex-patient of his setting fire to his garage, which is like the plot of one of the more upsetting Williams movies( you know, like Old Dogs ).
By comparison, the Mork And Mindy house, and even Williams’ own home, are left nearly completely alone.
Vietnam remains largely unchanged, too .
The obvious respect for the Williams family’s privacy is a wonderful thing to behold. Maybe the same courtesy should be extended to the guy in the Mrs. Doubtfire house. There’s always that bench in Boston.
