If you've been missing the chemistry, no pun intended, between Jesse Pinkman and Mr. White, they partner up again in a comedic short from the Television Academy and Emmy sponsor Audi of America in anticipation of next week's 66th Emmy Awards.

This time, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul—both Emmy winners for Breaking Bad—are Buzz and Randy Jackson, the owners of Barely Legal Pawn, the subject of yet another cheesy reality show about pawn shops. Their customer is Julia Louis-Dreyfus (as herself), who has decided to pawn off her Seinfeld Emmy for some cash to buy an island.

A careful watch will reveal a few Breaking Bad items around the shop, including a flyer for Los Pollos Hermanos.

And the last line is pretty clever.
