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.

The latest geek session with Mythbuster Adam Savage is a little lengthy, but provides an utterly fascinating story as to why he might have the only 24-karat gold C-3PO in existence.
