Web Video: Christopher Walkenthrough
is a series that's part Character Blog
, part Let's Play
, created by Jason Stephens of GameSocietyFilms. Christopher Walken
(voiced by Stephens) plays video games

. The show began on August 23rd, 2012 and has since taken off in popularity, with most episodes getting hundreds of thousands of views on Machinima
channel. There are currently 40 episodes, including a Christmas special
called "The 12 Days of Walkenthrough".
Unlike similar shows with character gimmicks such as McGoiter's Bane Plays...
series, Christopher Walkenthrough
is edited like a Clip Show
, allowing the humour to remain fresh with the constant change of setting, gameplay, and Stephens' excellent imitation of Walken's Cloud Cuckoolander

So far, Stephens has Walkenthroughed the following games:
- Author Avatar: Surprisingly averted. Despite the number of games he's played with character customization, he's only tried to make a Walken lookalike for his Skyrim videos.
- Cloudcuckoolander Commentator
- Crossover: With Two Best Friends Play for the second BioShock Infinite Walkenthrough.
- Dirty Old Man: 'Woah, boobies!'
- Nerds Are Virgins: While playing The Legend of Zelda:
Walken: If you were born in 1993-94, your dad played this game instead of having sex with women. Now, these days, he knocks it out all the time, usually with your mom, but... probably always with your mom. I shouldn't assume your dad is an adulterer.
- Non-Indicative Name: The name "Christopher Walkenthrough" is Just for Pun, as Walken primarily does something closer to a Let's Play than trying to show a walkthrough of any kind. Usually, when he tries to show some sort of tip or trick, Hilarity Ensues.
- Please Subscribe to Our Channel: At the end of every episode, including an advertisement for Stephens' own celebrity impersonation website. In-character, no less.
- Real Song Theme Tune: The show's theme song is "Pinball Spring 160" by Kevin MacLeod (specifically the Truck Driver's Gear Change around the 40 second mark).
- Talking to Himself: Stephens plays both Walken and Morgan Freeman.
- Verbal Tic: The Walken punctuates his sentences with 'Ho' and 'kids'.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Morgan Freeman, big time.
