Apparently Alan Rickman Appeared In A Simpsons Episode While A David Bowie Song Played

2016 has started off on a rocky note for celebrities, as both David Bowie and Alan Rickman passed away before we were even halfway through January. And now, an old Simpsons episode is making the rounds because both of the Brits were featured in there.

The episode, from The Simpsons' 24th season, is called "Love is a Many-Splintered Thing" and features Bart, Homer, and some other randoms watching a British film. Benedict Cumberbatch says some stuff, Alan Rickman briefly comments on it, and "All the Young Dudes," written by David Bowie, is playing in the background. FOX's Animation Domination is calling it a tribute, but really, this is just a clip from an old episode resurfacing. So maybe don't refer to it as a tribute if you're just using it to promote newer episodes, okay FOX?
