The Simpsons pay tribute to Alan Rickman and David Bowie

Animators over at the Simpsons have paid tribute to late British actor Alan Rickman and music icon David Bowie, in a clip that will be included in an upcoming episode.

The ridiculously random and British-themed short - based within the British parliament - parodies Rickman’s Love Actually, Love Indubitably.

Wait, did we mention it was random?

Rickman appears as Professor Severus Snape to give a speech about love,“Love is more powerful than all my magic” while Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the British Prime Minister, declares his love for his secretary Eliza Commonbottom.

Then William Shakespeare, Winston Churchill, Isaac Newton and Sherlock perform The Full Monty just before director Alfred Hitchcock breakdances his way out of Dr Who’s Tardis.

All wrapped up in a chorus of Bowie’s All The Youngs Dudes.

Oh Simpsons, never change.
