Tampico Furniture is a furniture store owned by the father of Domingo Gallardo Molina, better known by his street name "Krazy-8." The store is located on Menaul Boulevard in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The shop is famous for its late-night commercial, running for over 30 years.

History

Breaking Bad

Walter White was a customer of the store, buying Walter Jr.'s crib from the store. When Walter has Krazy-8 locked in the basement of Jesse's House, he learned that the drug dealer worked in the store until he quit one day ("...and the Bag's in the River"). The two of them then recalled the advertising song lyrics:

Don't let shopping
Strain your brain-o,
Just sing this short refrain-o.
Our furniture is bueno,
Tampico is the name-o.

Krazy-8 claimed that his uncle, Alex, wrote the song.
