Either the Breaking Bad movie just created the greatest viral marketing stunt in the history of motion pictures or I have binge-watched one too many crime shows and documentaries causing The Matrix to glitch and I am now living in my own little bizarre version of the classic AMC series.
I say this because I am not sure if I can go home for the holidays this year because I might accidentally run into my world’s version of Walter White.
In my world, the Galesburg, Illinois Police Facebook page says the authorities there are on the lookout for a man who is at-large, wanted for probation violation related to possession of methamphetamine.
They say his name is Todd W. Barrick, Jr., but I, and many people on Facebook have their doubts. Especially considering that “Barrick” is reportedly 50-years-old — the same age Walter White became a drug dealer on Breaking Bad.
Some of the more helpful comments on the GPD’s Facebook post include…
“Have you tried Albuquerque? Perhaps at Los Pollos Hermanos.”
“He’s in the house with a pizza on the roof.”
“YOU’LL FIND HIM IN BELIZE!”
“Is he the one who knocks?”
“He’s hiding til he can see what Pinkman’s been up to in the El Camino movie.”
“I knew Heisenberg was still alive.”
Along with a wide assortment of clever GIFs…

All I know is if the next time I am home, if I see a guy who looks like Tuco Salamanca I am going on a quest to find Morpheus and see if he can switch things back to the way they were.
