A lot of online videos try way too hard to be funny, but the promo from Audi for the 66th Emmy Awards on Monday, August 25, shows that if you put faith in a proven group of hilarious actors, you can strike comedy gold. The short film reunites Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul as the proprietors of a pawnshop of rare and obscure items called Barely Legal Pawn. They have their own fictional reality show (which really needs to exist) that rips off Pawn Stars, and this segment has comedy veteran Julia Louis-Dreyfus coming in to sell her Emmy award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy as Elaine on Seinfeld. Louis-Dreyfus also pays the title sponsor's bills by subtly incorporating a 2015 S3 into the otherwise car-free gag.

It would ruin the video to spoil any of the jokes; you just need to watch it. Cranston actually bridges the gap here because way before he became famous as Walter White on Breaking Bad, he had a recurring guest role on Seinfeld as dentist Dr. Tim Whatley. If you're a fan of either show or just need a hearty chuckle for today, this one is definitely for you because all three former Emmy winners put in fantastic performances.

      This should be a show. In this exact format, with movie stars coming in and these two buying.

      "Hey look, Audi is a sponsor on this viral video for the freaking Emmy's.  We should post it as news."

      Who is steering this ship nowadays, anyway?

        "We obsessively cover the auto industry..."

        Audi makes autos...

      'It would ruin the video to spoil any of the jokes'     What jokes? That was a dud.

        Stick with "Two and a Half Men." They identify each joke for you with a slap to the face.

        There were a lot of pretty good jokes in the subtext.  However, that didn't make up for how slow the main story was.
