The video will be entitled "Steamed Hams but Skinner is played by drunk Orson Welles". "Steamed Hams" is a meme that took a scene from The Simpsons involving the characters of Principal Skinner and Superintendent Chalmers having a luncheon. Each permutation of the scene has some element that makes it unique. In this case, Skinner will be played by an intoxicated Orson Welles, as inspired by outtakes of his from a wine commercial.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Auditions will be in the form of self-recorded tapes, in which you need only read some lines from the meme in your best Welles impression. Actual production will occur in the month of October (though this can be flexible), specific dates will vary according to actor availability. If actors have audio equipment of good quality, then the job can be done remotely. With that in mind, UNDER THE PROVISO OF OWNING OF GOOD EQUIPMENT, ANYONE IN THE WORLD CAN APPLY.

Job payment

This job is unpaid - There will be no payment as it's just a YouTube video but you will be credited in the description.


Skinner (portrayed as drunk Orson Welles).

Watch the outtakes for the Paul Masson wine advertisement that Welles did. His delivery is what you're aiming for. It goes without saying that you need to be able to pull off some sort of Welles impression. It doesn't have to be a perfect match, so long as the intention is clear. Also watch some steamed hams videos to get the gist of the meme, if you're unfamiliar. The dialogue will be unaltered. VO EXPERIENCE LOOKED UPON FAVOURABLY. AGE NOT AN ISSUE SO LONG AS IMPRESSION SOUNDS AUTHENTIC.

Male, aged 18 and over
