Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” is a perennial at Halloween.

And in this video, humorist and illustrator Jordan Monsell tries to make the poem his own by making belong to a lot of other people first. 100 people, to be precise. He reads this here while imitating 100 other people’s voices.

The skill is uneven. Some imitations are spot-on, and some are merely passable. Like something you’d hear a friend do at a party.

But, still, the size of the project is impressive. 100 imitations in one video.

Give it a listen and see which imitation you like the most.

To give credit where it’s due, someone sent this to us via our Facebook account. And they’d found it from the good people at Open Culture.
