Snoskred Notes –
Great teaser. I don’t know why but I love it when they flash different colours at Aaron Paul. Loved it with the sound system, love it with this teaser.
And now the pacing really slows right down – except for the part where Walt smokes up some tyres and BOOM..
The location is here – http://www.flickr.com/photos/24869473@N02/6571357449/in/photostream/ – on google maps there is no burnout marks, so I am guessing they really did clean the blacktop. 🙂 That is a great flickr – it has a lot of BB locations.
