A voice actor has gone viral on Reddit after his girlfriend filmed his uncanny impressions of several different Star Wars characters.

It’s impressive when someone can do an accurate impression of any fictional character, but true talent lies in the person who can do every single character from one franchise.

Actor Greg Jones was exposed for his incredible skills when his girlfriend posted a video of him doing as many Star Wars impressions as he could in less than a minute.

He successfully impersonated Kylo Ren, Yoda, C3PO, R2D2, Darth Vader, Old Obi-Wan Kenobi, New Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jabba the Hut, Chancellor Palpatine, and Chewbacca.

The video has subsequently gone viral on Reddit accruing more than 73,000 upvotes on r/nextf***inglevel and more than 23,000 upvotes on r/toptalent.

Fans were amazed at Greg’s impressive range. One person wrote, “I would have his kids, and I’m a dude,” while another fan wrote “Damn, son. Jabba, Chewie, Yoda, and R2D2 are probably the hardest out of the lot and he pretty much nailed all of them. Impressive”

Meanwhile, some were a little less impressed that he failed to include Jar Jar Binks among the plethora of characters, with one person adding a comment that read “Meesa thinks he missed one,” and it seems plenty of people agreed — the comment has almost 10,000 points.

Fans of Greg Jones can find more of his impressions on TikTok where his girlfriend, under their joint account @lucy_and_greg has uploaded two videos of Greg’s Harry Potter impressions too.

He expertly impersonates not only the classics like Snape and Dobby but even can differentiate between the first and second iterations of Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore..

Greg has his own personal page too, where he has recently posted sketches where he acts as both Boris Johnson and Donald Trump, and even acts out the scene between Lord Farquad and the Gingerbread Man in Shrek.

Popular TikTok group ‘Sway House’ has long been under public scrutiny for their physical appearance, with many critics accusing the influencers of using steroids to achieve their gains — and now, the entire group has spoken out about the rumors.

The Sway House is comprised of a slew of top-tier content creators, including the likes of Bryce Hall, Josh Richards, Griffin Johnson, and Blake Gray, who boast millions of followers between them across multiple social media platforms.

On February 23, the group got together to address popular rumors and speculation about them, using questions specifically provided by their own fans via Twitter.

One of the more popular assumptions about these TikTokers has been spread around many times before, which claims that the group collectively takes steroids and other such enhancers to boost their workout results.

A post shared by Bryce Hall (@brycehall)

While Bryce Hall has admitted to steroid use before, the entire group had yet to speak on the issue as a whole, which came up during their February “assumptions” video.

“I guess I can’t really say anything on this one,” Hall laughed.

“Griffin takes like, fake steroids though,” Richards joked. “He’s not even a full committer!”

“Oh yeah, he gets ‘test boosters,’” Hall replied. “Just shoot it up in the butt!”

“Dude, I literally only take vitamins!” Griffin retorted. “They help increase your natural testosterone levels!”

The jokes against Griffin come as a humorous turn of the tables, after Tayler Holder grilled Bryce Hall about his own purported steroid use in December. During their humorous Q & A session, Hall did admit that he had used steroids in the past, but had since gone back to being “all natty.”

“Yes, I did,” Hall laughed. “So do so many other people, so f**k you guys! More plates, more dates. You guys were correct!”

“Let me tell you, I’m not encouraging any of my viewers to do it,” he added. “I just wanted to get big. I’m off now, I’m all natty now. Fully.”

(Topic starts at 1:50)

While the accusations of steroid use among the rest of the group remain as mere allegations, it’s important for fans to remember that their favorite influencers likely have a slew of resources at their disposal to obtain such bodies, and that being completely shredded isn’t a totally realistic body goal to set for everyone.
