WATCH: This Guy Impersonates 14 Harry Shearer Characters From ‘The Simpsons’

It was just two weeks ago that Harry Shearer announced via Twitter that he was quitting The Simpsons. Considering he voices what some might consider vital characters to the show – Mr. Burns, Smithers, Ned Flanders, Reverend Lovejoy, Otto, Dr Hibbert, Lenny, Scratchy, and Kent Brockman, to throw some familiar names at you – his loss would be detrimental to a perfectly cromulent show.

Enter voiceover artist Brock Baker, who’s decided to save Springfield from multi-character death syndrome* by demonstrating his flawless ability to impersonate Shearer’s characters, including an alien Mr Burns and an all-too-short rendition of ‘See my vest’.

Whether his audition to replace Shearer is a serious one is TBD, but auditioning via YouTube for a major TV show? What a time to be alive. 

If the previously-irreplaceable Shearer decides to definitely not return to Springfield (and FYI the jury’s still out), then this guy could well be it.

*Not a scientifically backed disease. Also, producer Al Jean shut down any fears of a Game of Thrones level character slaughter.
