Impersonations

People who do cartoonish, exaggerated voices of celebrities are impressionists. This guy is an impersonator.

I think I like impressionists better.

If you close your eyes I defy you to guess more than 3 of these voices. Two of them are spot on, but that doesn’t mean you will guess them. It’s odd that we can identify the impression more quickly than the impersonation.

We need a government funded study as to why this is. I will put in my grant for a ten million dollar study.

Listen here. And close your eyes.

    “Listen here. And close your eyes” should have been the warning for the picture in the next story “The Regime Is Punishing Fox News Again.”

    His best ones are Kevin Spacey, Jason Statham and Matthew Mcconaughey, his second Harrison Ford is pretty good.

    I liked IOTWs’ James Bond impersonations vid about a million times better. (from “The Trip”)

    I thought James Gandolfini was Joe Pesci. I’m not very good at this.

    His Arnold Schwarzenegger sounded like the leprechaun in a Lucky Charms commercial.

    I thought this guy was funny, but like LadyGun wasn’t too good at guessing. Did enjoy the video much better the second time – with my eyes open.
