What do you do when you're a famous actor strapped for cash because you just really need to buy your own island? You pawn one of your Emmy awards. (Hey, we've all been there.)
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is the proud owner of four of those golden winged-woman statues, three for Lead Actress In a Comedy and one for Supporting from her "Seinfeld" days, and is nominated for the eight time in the former category. In a new video spoof from the Television Academy, Louis-Dreyfus appears in an episode of "Barely Legal Pawn," a (fake) reality series where Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul play the owners of a pawn shop. To get cash quick she tries to pawn her "Seinfeld" Emmy, but Paul and Cranston are hesitant to strike a bargain since a Drama Emmy is (obviously) way more valuable than a Comedy one.
But, there's a twist ... and it's near "Breaking Bad" shock level. Watch the video above, we beg you, until the end because the last line is the best part. Also, someone needs to make "Barely Legal" a real show immediately.
The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards air on Monday, August 25 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
