‘Simpsons’ Clip Tributes Alan Rickman with David Bowie Soundtrack

Two years ago, the Season 24 “Simpsons” episode “Love is a Many Splintered Thing” featured a scene that parodied two Alan Rickman films to the music of David Bowie’s “All the Young Dudes.”

In light of the two British icons’ passing, the “Simpsons” Twitter account reminded fans of the scene as a tribute to the great UK performers.

The parody, called “Love Indubitably,” pokes fun at “Love, Actually,” with the voice of Benedict Cumberbatch as Hugh Grant’s character from the film, and a special appearance by Rickman as Severus Snape from the “Harry Potter” movies. Rickman starred in “Love, Actually” opposite Emma Thompson.
