Celebrity impressions and character impersonations are no joke. It’s extremely difficult to nail the voice, mannerisms, and attitude of a different person or character, let alone 105 of them. Quinton Kappel, a rising YouTube celebrity, just posted an awesome video in which he does not one, not two, not fifty, but 105 different impressions, ranging from Krusty the Clown to the Green Goblin.
Kappel is both an artist and a voice actor, so he’s clearly been trained in vocal flexibility and imitation. His ability to transform himself from one character to another is incredibly admirable; it’s something at which only a minute amount of people could mildly succeed.
Although this impression is done all over the Internet, Kappel’s Christopher Walken impersonation is dead on. Not only are Kappel’s vocal mannerisms identical to those of Walken, but his facial movements and expressions also imitate Walken’s to great effect. While the video only came out a few days ago, it’s clear that before long, Kappel will be an established YouTube performer.
