It’s not about the appearance so much – a TRULY committed impersonator would have shaved his head, even for 9 seconds, obviously. It’s about the choreography, the timing and the set-dressing, which captures the Simpsons patriarch’s pre-game ritual perfectly.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go do my own imitation of this scene. Not for any cameras, mind you, but to fill the inner hole of insecurity with an artery blocking plug of junk food. It totally works, right?
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
