Game of Thrones Season 6 closed with a record-breaking finale, leaving die-hard fans everywhere in a state of shock and disbelief and denial and excitement and melancholy all at the same time.
That?s why it didn?t come as a surprise when one of the videos of Scheiffer Bates?a comic, a Youtube star, and impersonator?became viral on social media a week after GoT?s ?The Winds of Winter? episode.
In this viral video, uploaded on June 28, Scheiffer, who hails from South Wales, doesn?t just do an impression of one character. He?s managed to do an impression of 21 Game of Thrones characters?from Samwell Tully to Petyr Baelish aka Littlefinger, from Varys to Hodor, from Tyrion Lannister to Ser Davos Seaworth, from Walder Frey to Jorah Mormont, from Jaime Lannister to the High Sparrow. Name it, he has it.
What makes Scheiffer Bates? impressions so unique is the fact that he is able to imitate not only the character?s accent but also the inflections, the nuances in the manner of speaking, and even the tone of voice.
But it?s Scheiffer? spot-on Jon Snow impression that made the video all the more popular.
It didn?t hurt that Scheiffer took the time and effort to include funny lines and a bit of dancing in this video just to prove that he?s also got mad dancing skills.
At this writing, the video has more than 361,000 views.
This is not the first time Scheiffer Bate did a Game of Thrones impression, though.
Back in June 2015, he appeared via video calling in Jimmy Kimmel Live to do his best impression of the King in the North. For comic effect, he did a Jon Snow while reading the lines printed on the back of a box of Frosted Flakes breakfast cereals.
Jon Snow himself, Kit Harington, was at the show to hear them deliver their lines. Of course, the funny segment didn?t end without Kit Harington showing the boys how it?s done.
