HBO Recaps the best of Roast Joffrey
By Lightbringer on in Humor.

HBO has put together a short compilation of the very best jokes from the recent social media roast of our favorite King, Joffrey. Set to the backdrop of some deliciously rotten clips, and a few imp slaps for good measure, it’s a quick and funny watch:

 

Did they leave out any of your favorites?

Many thanks to Greenjones and Valyrian Plastic for pointing us to the video!

    I hope we can add to this compilation much more of these enjoyable scenes after this season is over!

    Continuing on from the last post:

    @Lightbringer, so you are completely new to the community? Welcome! My I ask what the reasoning was behind the name Lightbringer? There seemed to be a pattern going on with mods using house words as names:
    Winter Is Coming
    Fire and Blood
    Ours Is the Fury
    Hear Me Roar
    We Do Not Sow (who I don’t think is around anymore)
    Even Oz has his “Unbowed, Unbent, Unsullied” Martell parody thing.

    @All WiC.net mods,
    When will the transition to fansided be taking place? And are you planning on adding any more mods/staff members after Lightbringer? I’m just curious because it seems that these changes have been in the works for a while now.

    Did they have more than the Arya, the Hound and Hodor participate in the roast with video clips? I thought I had read they were going to have quite a few but dont remember seeing more than those. Then again, maybe my idea of quite a few and HBOs are different.

    Unfortunately I have to agree.

    Also interesting that we have a new writer, can we expect an official introduction from Lightbringer?

    Clever of HBO to start building up the Joffrey hate again for the big payoff that’s coming up soon…

    Ser Tahu,

    Yeah, what ever happened to We Do Not Sow?

    Or not. His death is obvious now.

    Ozymandias,

    His death was already obvious anyway. The unsullied have been predicting it for a whole season now, because you need some balance in a story or it becomes overwhelming. That, and the whole Leech ritual telegraphed it as well.

    This was good for a laugh, and decent marketing.

    I’m with you here. His doom is obvious to every unsullied I know, they just don’t know how or when exactly. The cool thing is, hate will continue to build (especially after he ruins a certain gift with another certain gift…. a ruler who has no care or concern for history is destined for doom) and there are more surprises left that will have much higher impact

    Rather fitting that what brings him down is a strong dose of whine, am I right?

    Also, did anyone else have to complete a captcha to access winteriscoming.net, or was it only me? I’m on an iPad. Part of the fansided transition?

    Nice. Mostly GOT-inspired art is just focused on spelling out the words “awesome” “badass” in ways I don’t find very interesting, but this seemed to have some nice thought and purpose.

    When OZ came abord Winter said that We Do Not Sow could not keep doing the Unsullied reviews due to lack of time or something to that effect if I remember correctly

    *raises hand*. Surprise! I had to enter the captcha shit as well last night. Almost thought WiC had been hacked, but it is definitely a “bigger” (fansided) network thing. Thanks for the warning, WiC!

    Hodor’s Bastard,

    Hmm. I just accessed the site from my phone and didn’t have any problems getting straight to the content. Could possibly have been a temporary thing. I’ve sent a note to our tech team to find out more info. I’ll let you guys know.

    Hodor’s Bastard,

    Just spoke with tech. What happened was a security measure that kicked in automatically when WIC got switched to FanSided’s DNS. Shouldn’t have happened to everyone but had something to do with the IP. At any rate, I told tech and tech turned that off so it shouldn’t happen again. If it does, give me a shout: patrick.allen@fansided.com.

    Thanks for the response! I just saw it on another fansided site on my android phone as well. Turning it off is a good idea…not many people want to do a captcha just for some game of thrones news!

    Bling in the North,

    Yeah I feel you. We want the network to be secure so we can avoid SPAM and attacks but we also don’t want to make it impossible to get to the sites or what is the point?

    Give me a shout any time there is a problem (hopefully there won’t be often).

    Patrick Allen,

    Captcha is so old-school. You should demand retinal scans for granting access to GoT information. :)

    Hodor’s Bastard,

    I was thinking we could just have everyone renounce their old Gods and declare for the Lord of Light before being able to get into the site.

    Patrick Allen,

    So those who follow The Great Other would be left out of the conversation again? Where’s the diversity in that? Shame!!
