Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have reunited for “Barely Legal Pawn,” a hilarious send-up of the ever-growing number of pawn store-based television shows.
A viral spoof intended to promote the Aug. 25 Primetime Emmy Awards telecast, the video finds Julia Louis-Dreyfus desperate to hock her 1996 statue for Supporting Actress in a Comedy for Seinfeld. It would’ve been worth more, we’re told, if it were for Lead Actress or for a drama.
“You know what they say,” Paul says. “Comedy is easy, drama is hard.”
Louis-Dreyfus has four Emmys — one each for Seinfeld and The New Adventures of Old Christine, and two for Veep. Cranston is no slouch himself, winning Lead Actor three years in a row for Breaking Bad. Paul has two wins for Supporting Actor in a Drama.
Be sure to stick around until the end of the video for a couple of nods to Breaking Bad.
