Ricky Gervais attempted to break the record for the most celebrity impressions in 30 seconds, but he did it in classic Gervais style.

Appearing on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Gervais aimed to take on impressions of everyone from Oprah to Kim Kardashian, to Robert De Niro.

But, in typical Gervais style, he actually just ended up quoting each celeb in a high-pitched voice, occasionally throwing in some gestures, too.

(Note: the impressions kick in at about 1.15)

Before the impressions started, Fallon even commented on the fact that while most actors will change their voice or accent depending on the role, Gervais always sounds like himself.

"The reason I don't do accents isn't that I can't, it's that I can't be bothered," Gervais said, straight and to the point.
