The Television Academy released a promo Monday for the upcoming Emmy Awards, featuring three nominees of the upcoming kudocast spoofing a notably popular subset of reality TV.

In it, Julia Louis-Dreyfus tries to pawn one of her Emmys to the clueless owners of the Barely Legal Pawn shop, played by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul.

There are jokes about the varying merits of supporting vs. leading roles, cable vs. network television money and comedy vs. drama prestige, not to mention the several "Breaking Bad" references in the six-minute clip.

Louis-Dreyfus is nominated for lead actress for a comedy series for "Veep," while "Breaking Bad" stars Cranston and Paul are nominated for lead actor and supporting actor in a drama series, respectively.

The Emmy Awards will take place Aug. 25 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC.
