Subscribe To Watch These Jon Snow Impersonators Totally Impress Kit Harington Updates

Jon Snow may know nothing, but apparently that hasn’t stopped Jimmy Kimmel from asking him to judge impersonators of his character. Recently actor Kit Harington popped up on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to chat about his career and, that’s right, watch a bunch of dudes who enjoy dressing up and talking like his Game of Thrones character. You can check out the hilarious bit, below.
Interestingly, only one of the three men impersonating Jon Snow actually has the British accent to back him. The other two impersonators hailed from Sherman Oaks, CA and Ottowa, Canada, respectively. While the dude from US—sorry bro—was not quite as great with the accents, all three gave it a better go than most of us could, affecting Jon Snow’s voice while reading from a Frosties box, a Pantene bottle and a housing listing.
In the video, Jon Snow politely listens to each of the impersonators, who look varying degrees like the actor, even affecting similar facial hair and throwing on wigs toward the end.
But the real test comes during the final round, when the three impersonators stop reading about modern-day items and start explaining that “winter is coming.” Each impersonator gives the famous phrase a go, and then Kit Harington himself scrunches up his face and takes the spotlight. Even if you just watch this video to get to the end where Harington gives us a bonus “winter is coming,” it’s worth the wait.
Spoilers if you haven’t caught the last few episodes of Game of Thrones. Of course winter is coming. Just a couple of episodes ago, Jon Snow headed across the wall to appeal to the Wildlings to join him in his cause. While there, the white walkers assembled and took on the wildling population. Many were killed and were given new life among the White Walkers. I have no idea what this means for Jon Snow, the wall and his chances for survival, but it’s looking more and more as if winter is already here.
Game of Thrones will conclude its fifth season this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET only on HBO. Expect the series back for Season 6, but in the meantime, here’s a guide of what we’ve seen so far in 2015.
