Julia Louis-Dreyfus Also Appears in Audi-sponsored Short to Promote August 25 Broadcast

Editor's Pick

'Breaking Bad' baddies Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul team up with 'Veep' star Julia Louis-Dreyfus in this new comedic short sponsored by Audi to promote the 66th Primetime Emmys, set to air this Monday, August 25.

The film is set in a pawn shop called "Barely Legal," what could be a sleazy, redneck version of the shop on popular cable show "Pawn Stars." Cranston and Paul play the owners, reuniting as less-than-law-abiding characters, while the 'Seinfeld' vet plays a fictionalized version of herself. For this Julia, the going's gotten a little tough -- she tries selling one of her four Emmys to rustle up some cash for her private island.

Throughout the six-minute plus film, the stars toss out a slew of sly references to their shows and illustrious careers as the plot gets increasingly outrageous.
