Watch Kit Harington react to the Internet's best Jon Snow impersonators

On Wednesday's episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live," the actor sat back and judged three impersonators vying for his job as moody Jon Snow on HBO's "Game of Thrones."

You know nothing, impersonators of Jon Snow.

Kit Harington appeared on Wednesday night's episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live," and the chat show's mischievous host decided to have a little fun with the actor who plays the perpetually embattled and betrayed Snow on HBO's hit fantasy series "Game of Thrones."

Unbeknownst to Harington, Kimmel rounded up three of the best Jon Snow impersonators on YouTube, and had the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch watch the three men do as good of a Jon Snow voice as the British actor does on the show.

There was a twist, of course -- isn't there always a twist to these sorts of things? Instead of delivering some of the miserable lines Snow has said over the course of the show's five seasons, the impersonators did their best to keep a straight face while giving their most dour impressions and reading text found on common household items. They read from things like boxes of cereal, real estate listings and bottles of shampoo as they tried their darnedest to sound just like poor old Snow. You've never heard the phrase "may contain traces of peanut" sound so grim.

How did they fare in the eyes of the real deal? Kit seemed pretty impressed, actually, before he schooled them by delivering the most Jon Snow line ever -- "Winter is coming."

Check out the video in its entirety above, then get ready to watch as winter makes its way toward the Seven Kingdoms on the finale of the fifth season of "Game of Thrones," which will land on HBO on Sunday in the US, and on Monday on Sky Atlantic in the UK and Foxtel in Australia.
