Anything that puts Bryan Cranston, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Aaron Paul in a room together is something to see!

The Primetime Emmys are less than a week away, and as one of the year's most hotly anticipated award shows looms, memes are popping up every which way. In a new promo from The Television Academy, the three nominees serve up a delicious parody.

Barely Legal Pawn shop owners Cranston and Paul, along with Louis-Dreyfus who has come to pawn one of her several coveted Emmys, debate drama vs. comedy performances ("drama's a cinch!"), leading vs. supporting and more water-cooler topics in the six-minute clip. Watch below.

The Primetime Emmys air August 25. Cranston and Paul, for "Breaking Bad," and Louis-Dreyfus for comedy "Veep," should all expect to win big.
