Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul own 'Barely Legal Pawn' in Emmy ad

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are back together, but they're not quite in their iconic roles as Breaking Bad's Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. The duo appear alongside Julia Louis-Dreyfus, once of Seinfeld, now starring in Veep, for an affectionate parody of shows such as Pawn Stars that casts the Breaking Bad actors as owners of seedy pawn shop "Barely Legal Pawn." Dreyfus — apparently keen to earn money to buy her own island — tries to convince Cranston and Paul to buy her Emmy, before changing her mind and keeping the statuette. The six-minute video is a teaser for the upcoming Emmy awards on August 25th, and doesn't end before a change in tone that brings it closer to the Emmy-winning Breaking Bad.
