Two of the stars on the television show Breaking Bad are acting in an Emmys promo video. 'Barely Legal Pawn' is quite a funny video and made many an individual laugh his head off.
'Barely Legal Pawn' is a 6-minute video clip that features two Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul in a series of dirty roles as pawnbrokers. It was produced by Audi of America.
The two stars of Breaking Bad reunited after a long time for the Emmys promotional video. Barely Legal Pawn shows the actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus coming into their store to exchange her Emmy in lieu for some cold hard cash.
She explains to the two that Celine Dion owns a tropical island and she too bought one online after she got drunk as a skunk. So now she needs the money badly and that was why she wanted to swap her Emmy for a whole lot of caboodle.
Cranston looks like a cross between a rap star and Burt Reynolds. Aaron Paul meanwhile sees the whole scenario in front of him and measures the statuette. He compliments the actress. And then he disregards the trophy award.
This reunion of Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston after their roles in Breaking Bad is fortuitous. It signifies a lot of things and comic relief is one of them.
The fans of the show had been badly missing the two and now they got to see them in a very hilarious video clip that portrayed the lighter side of life.
Watch the video clip below.
The role of hucksters who operated a dark pawn shop has the duo doing all sorts of underhanded tricks on the sneaky side. Many times we take things too seriously and get caught up in a state of affairs where we think we are in charge of the universe.
Comedy tells us to come down and face life in all its ordinary filth and creature comforts. With Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul playing shady characters in the spoof of sorts, the audience’s funny bone is tickled pink.
We ought to have such belly laughter-inducing and guffaw-worthy acts of lampooning and satirical sights on screen. They make the tense situation of the global village seem dwarfed in comparison to their non-serious attitude. And it brings smiles to many faces which is a laudable goal indeed.
