It's been awhile since we've seen Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul paired together on the television screen. To be honest, most viewers haven't gotten over their on-screen break up. In an attempt to cure the millions of fans from their "Breaking Bad" hangovers, the Emmys thought it best to pair the two with Julia Louis-Dreyfus in a hilarious promotional video.

Dreyfus has always been a fan favorite ever since her long stint on "Seinfeld," which could easily be classified as the funniest show ever on television. Dreyfus has since moved on to her own show, "Veep," which airs on HBO. The name of the show should be changed because Dreyfus is now the first woman president of the United States, but that's a topic for another discussion.

The title of the Emmy promotional video is "Barely Legal Pawn," which features Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul as the shop owners. Not too take anything away from Paul, but Cranston's acting abilities are far superior. Cranston nails the role as a greedy pawnshop owner who half-wittingly tries to skimp customers.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus enters the pawnshop in an attempt to pawn off one of her Emmys from "Seinfeld." As Dreyfus explains, during a blackout she accidently purchased her own island, because she heard that Céline Dion has one. Dreyfus is now forced to grab some fast cash as she interacts with the "Breaking Bad" stars.

There is a close encounter near the end of the video where Dreyfus seemingly catches Cranston and Paul up to their old antics of cooking meth. Luckily it turns out to be a mix-up, but not before Paul is able to deliver his signature catch phrase, "B****."

The Emmys are set to air on Monday at 8 p.m. (PT) on NBC. "Breaking Bad" will be in the running for best television drama, which will seemingly result in victory due to the mass popularity of the show by critics and fans alike. "Veep" should see a win in the comedy series category. Dreyfus has reestablished herself as a viable comedian, as she largely carries the show by herself.
