Oh sure, we like our artsy fartsy movies, and ruminate with furrowed brows about the Oscars and the industry, and whatnot. But at the end of the day, you're just as likely to find Playlist members sitting down to watch "Chopped" or "Pawn Stars." That's just how we roll. And it looks like we're not the only ones.

Barely Legal Pawn

Oh sure, we like our artsy fartsy movies, and ruminate with furrowed brows about the Oscars and the industry and whatnot. But at the end of the day, you're just as likely to find Playlist members sitting down to watch "Chopped" or "Pawn Stars." That's just how we roll. And it looks like we're not the only ones.

The Emmys are next Monday, and to help get the word out, "Breaking Bad" dudes Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, along with "Veep" lead Julia Louis-Dreyfus, have put together the six-minute parody "Barely Legal Pawn." Yes, this is a reality show spoof (low hanging fruit), but the trio makes it worth your while. It finds Julia hawking her Primetime Emmy Award after a drunken late night online shopping spree finds her having to pay off her own private island, and she takes the stature to the decidedly redneck Cranston and Paul for appraisal. And....well, you should probably just watch the rest from there. Check it out below. [THR]
