Walkenthrough is a show format created by the Game Society in which a celebrity voice impressionist narrates video gameplay with comedy resulting in a fictional scenario where a celebrity appears to be playing a video game. The format originated in 2012 from a Game Society series called the Christopher Walkenthrough in which Christopher Walken (played by Jason Stephens) provides a walkthrough of a rotation of video games. The show was picked up by Machinima in the summer of 2012 and all shows created by the Game Society featuring celebrity voice-overs have been branded as "Walkenthrough" by Machinima including Morgan Freeman's Storytime and Presidential Gamers.[1]

Most shows star voice impressionist Jason Stephens as the voices for Christopher Walken, Morgan Freeman, Barack Obama, Donald Trump, John Madden, and many other celebrities.

As the title of the series implies, Christopher Walken (voiced by Jason Stephens) plays through numerous games giving hints and advice about the game and about life in a Christopher Walken fashion. Morgan Freeman (voiced by Jason Stephens) appears often with Walken.

The series often starts with "I've got a fever and the only prescription is..." in reference to the SNL skit "More Cowbell" (Wikipedia).[2][3] Theme song used in the beginning is Pinball Spring 160 by Kevin MacLeod.[4]

Morgan Freeman Edit

Presidential Gamers Edit

Main article: Presidential Gaming

During Barack Obama's tenure as President, Game Society's Obama impersonator played video games to promote his health care program, ACA, also known as "Obamacare." His gamer tag was HealthcareGOV and he would interact with the young gaming audience to convince them to visit the government health insurance website, HealthCare.gov. He would also play video games to get away from the pressures of being president and after his term as president ended, he would use his free time to play games to get away from spending too much time with family.[5]

Gearing up for the 2016 presidential election, Game Society started making videos featuring the Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, who would later become President.

Jason has also voiced as former President George W. Bush.

Other impressions Edit

Game Society has also made celebrity impersonation videos like John Madden, Randy Newman, Adam West, and John Malkovich.
