The Simpsons once referenced Alan Rickman and David Bowie in Comedy Clip
A clip from an episode of The Simpsons featuring Alan Rickman and David Bowie has resurfaced following their deaths.
The original episode Love is a Many-Splintered Thing was aired in 2013.
Alan Rickman appears in character as Severus Snape (Benedict Cumberbatch played his voice) while All The Young Dudes by David Bowie is played.
The clip begins with Homer and his Springfield pals trying to understand their wives by watching Love Indubitably, featuring a Prime Minister voiced by none other than Benedict Cumberbatch using his power to declare his love for his secretary, Eliza Commonbottom.
Parliament erupts into cheers as they kiss as “All The Young Dudes” by David Bowie, who also sadly and unexpectedly died this week, blasts out.
Then, not randomly at all, Rickman appears dressed as Professor Severus Snape to give a speech about love. “Love is more powerful than all my magic,” he says, before Shakespeare, Churchill, Sherlock and Isaac Newton perform The Full Monty as director Alfred Hitchcock steps out of Dr Who’s Tardis and breakdances.
The scene originally aired in February 2013 during the episode ‘Love is a Many-Splintered Thing’.
