Sunday 8:00 PM on CBS


It's a tale as old as time: One night you're drinking with your buddies when all of a sudden, you come up with the brilliant idea to do some online shopping. Everything's great until the next morning, when you realize that, not only do you have a killer hangover, but you're now the owner of an island in the Mediterranean and it's up to you to find a way to pay for said island. 

Such is the premise for the following Emmys sketch, which was produced by he Television Academy and features four-time winner and 18-time nominee (including this year!) Julia Louis-Dreyfus, as well as two of her fellow past winners and current nominees, Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul.

In the sketch, the Veep actress visits Barely Legal Pawn, a pawn shop run by brothers Buzz Jackson (Cranston) and Randy Jackson (Paul). There, Louis-Dreyfus attempts to sell off the Emmy statuette she won in 1996 for her role as Elaine Benes on Seinfeld. "It would be better if it was leading," Cranston says with skeezy aplomb.

"Hey now," interjects Paul. "Supporting is a huge honor." And he would know, given that he's already won two Emmys for his supporting role as Breaking Bad's Jesse Pinkman and is nominated again this year. 

Check out the hilarious spoof below, and if you're a fan of Breaking Bad, be sure to watch all the way to the end, at which point a certain catchphrase may or may not make an appearance.

Can someone please cast Cranston and Paul in the same project again soon, please?

Also, be sure to tune in for the Primetime Emmys on Monday, August 25 on NBC to find out whether Cranston, Paul, or Dryfus will be taking home any new hardware this year.
