This is why Award shows are truly worth all the time and effort. In promotion of the upcoming Emmys, the organisers have pulled a blinder by bringing together Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul to play Pawn shop owners in a comedy sketch that has Julia Louis-Dreyfus trying to hock her Emmy for Seinfeld.
“We’re not licensed, and they can be mighty stinky!”
I love comedy Cranston. It’s easy to forget after 5 gruelling seasons of Breaking Bad that he has some of the best comedy chops in the business. And with all the in-joke humour (the mutual ‘supporting actor’ respect, the Los Pollos Hermanos easter egg, and of course the puppy dog twist) it’s sure to become a viral sensation with the still enormous (and growing) Breaking Bad fan legions.
I’m still not going to make any effort to watch the Emmys. But I love this!
