Christopher Walken, whose distinctive voice that could make the contents of the phone book hilarious, is easily one of the most aped men in the world.

Sadly, these impression are, more often that not, awful.

And what better place to find awful people doing awful things than YouTube? We scoured the fertile breeding ground of "WTF" for the very worst and weirdest CW imitators, which we've presented for your enjoyment/ridicule.

Get ready to cringe.




Eyebrows Walken
Mistake:
Where do we we even start? He may well have confused big CW with someone else altogether. The intonation is off. The timbre. The tone. It's so excruciating it make us want to force cotton into our ears.
What it actually sounds like:
He sounds like Walken doing a bad impression of DeNiro.

Suited Walken
Mistake: He swallows entire syllables, like a big greedy goldfish. Everyone knows Walken's register spans three very noticeable octaves, this guy's got two at best.
What it actually sounds like:
If Walken and Fran Drescher had a love child and made it live underwater for the first six years of its life, this is what it'd sound like.

Weird '90s curtains-haircut Walken
Mistake:
We've never seen a Walken impression so mercilessly over-hammed. This guy's impression is hammier than Al Pacino, Jack Black and Jim Carrey eating ham sandwiches in a ham jacuzzi.
What it actually sounds like:
Someone getting over a prolonged period of electro-shock therapy.

Disco lights in my bedroom Walken
Mistake:
Well, apart from the disco lights, and the bizarre dressing gown / sunglasses combo, it's the conviction that's really lacking. He isn't into the character. There is the kernel of a half-decent impression there, but he needs to stay in character and learn the peaks and troughs of Walken.
What is actually sounds like:
Like a lonely man talking nonsense in his bedroom, while keeping his voice down, so as to not wake his parents who are sleeping in the next room. Wait, hold on.

Santa Walken
Mistake:
At first you kind of see where this guy's going, but it quickly becomes painfully, painfully apparent that it's one metronomically dull Walken impression. He hits the same three notes over, and over, and over again.
What it actually sounds like:
Like a low-quality ringtone.

Malnourished Walken
Mistake:
It's the slightly peculiar hand-gestures, the side-on stance. The pubescent quiver in his voice. We like him, don't get us wrong, this dude's got something, but it isn't the ability to impersonate Christopher Walken.
What it actually sounds like:
Walken's rabbit.
