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


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.
