Last year’s “Breaking Bad” finale may have wrapped
up five seasons of raising hell in Albuquerque, but what Discovery’s
“Mythbusters” found most interesting was Walter White’s machine gun
booby trap from the series finale. “Felina” saw Walt utilizing an M60 machine gun hooked into the trunk
of his car to take out a slew of his enemies at once, and “Mythbusters”
Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman took on the hefty task of deciding on
whether or not the feat was possible.

Discovery aired this episode earlier this summer, but the
video above was released just recently, allowing viewers to replay the test and judge the plausibility of slaughtering a room full of white supremacists
with a remote-controlled machine gun. Savage and Hyneman had the added bonus of
testing their own device out in the presence of “Breaking Bad”
creator Vince Gilligan, making for both a fantastic episode, and a fun clip to check
out above.
