Two of the world’s greatest entertainers, David Bowie and Alan Rickman, both sadly passed away this week – and a clip from The Simpsons referencing both of the icons has surfaced online.

Two of Rickman’s most memorable films, Love Actually and Harry Potter, were parodied, in a clip circulating again in light of the actor’s death.

The clip begins with Homer and his Springfield pals trying to understand their wives by watching Love Indubitably, featuring a Prime Minister voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch.

Parliament erupts into cheers as they kiss as “All The Young Dudes” by David Bowie begins to blast over the clip.

Rickman then appears dressed as Professor Severus Snape to give a speech about love: “Love is more powerful than all my magic,” he says.

The scene originally aired in February 2013 during the episode ‘Love is a Many-Splintered Thing’.
