The Simpsons paid tribute to Alan Rickman and David Bowie three years ago

THE SIMPSONS

RIP Alan Rickman and David Bowie...

The Simpsons is so attuned to pop culture that they ~somehow~ pieced together a tribute to David Bowie and Alan Rickman three years before their tragic deaths this week. An episode spoofing Love Actually (their version – Love, Indubitably) featured Snape, voiced by actor Benedict Cumberbatch, while David Bowie’s ‘All The Young Dudes’ can be heard in the background.

It seems Benedict Cumberbatch enjoys showing off his ~spot on~ Alan Rickman impression as he also broke it on the Jimmy Fallon show back in 2013.
