Perhaps bored by winning all of the Emmys yet again, an exuberant, moustachioed Bryan Cranston decided to spice up the ceremony last night by attacking Veep's Julia Louis-Dreyfus with a protracted kiss.
The pair joked about his bit part in Seinfeld on stage earlier in the night (in which Louis-Dreyfus starred), and as the actress went to collect her award for Veep Cranston leapt out of his chair and proceeded to kiss her like a horny teenager.
Louis-Dreyfuss gave as good as she got, with the moment now being furiously GIF'd around the internet.
This isn't the pair's first Emmy gag, having starred together in a 6-minute Emmy promo film called 'Barely Legal Pawn' that hit YouTube last week.
Cranston won his fourth Emmy for his acting masterclass in Breaking Bad at the ceremony, with fellow cast members Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn also being honoured.
The AMC show also received the night's most prestigious gor outstanding drama, beating True Detective, House of Cards and Game of Thrones, the latter of which failed to win a single award on the night.
