Game of Thrones gets the Honest Trailer treatment
By Hear Me Roar on in Humor, Media.

Blessed be the day! Some of my favourite comedic content on YouTube is Honest Trailers by Screen Junkies, and now they went and actually did one for Game of Thrones! Obviously, spoilers for seasons 1-3 abound. Enjoy it, this thing is simply hilarious.

    Honest trailers are always awesome

    For Frodo and for the casting of Mads Mikkelsen as Euron

    Screen Junkies usually do a good job with those I especially remember their hilarious Prometheus Honest Trailer.

    The spoiler-free version is even funnier, especially during the Sean Bean part. Mostly just a long series of bleeps and occasional consonants.

    Brilliant vid, but I’ll pass on a subscription. It kicked the shit out of that “Not-Literally” trailer a few weeks back. Was hoping for something better than “Joffrey is Justin Bieber” though. Don’t worry, irritating voice-over guy, he’ll be gone pretty soon. A little too soon really; I was hoping the PW would be in episode 3 so they could build-up all the other plotlines beforehand.

    Best April Fools’ EVER!

    Abyss,

    Because of the tits. IDK where you work, but for most workplaces, a small box to cover nipples wouldn’t be enough to make it SFW.

    This whole thing was absolutely hilarious. “Ummm, can we just fast forward to that part?” And as someone who has been on the receiving end of my Unsullied friends who don’t know all of the characters- “the lady who had the demon baby!” sounds about right. Loved the end: R+L=J

    haltwhogoesthere,

    Well, if these small boxes are good enough for youtube, where everybody and there little sister can see the clip, then they should be good enough for a working places where usually grown-ups hang out, don’t you think? – And if someone’s boss is really so tense about covered breasts, then you should better get to work and not watch youtube anyway. ;-)

    Why is it fashionable to pretend you’re an idiot and don’t know anything or anyone? Or are most casual tv watchers REALLY that stupid?

    Consider my jimmies thoroughly ruffled by this shit.

    That was fantastic. I especially loved the long run of guessing minor characters’ names and the R+L=J wink at the end. The “Six Degrees of Sean Bean’s Web of Death” bit was great as well. And of course, bewbs.

    Suffice it to say that I wasted a fair amount of time today watching the other videos on that channel. Great stuff.

    Okay forget it – I get it. Took me a moment but OMG that’s so exciting!!! Mads Mikkelsen = one of my all-time favourite actors EVAR!!!!

    this was amazing

    especially the ‘characters you don’t know’ bit, that was so accurate, can’t say how many conversations i’ve had with casual viewers where I’ve had to describe people as “the fat guy” or “demon vag lady”

    What’s up with Frodo? I heard he visited the set, but is he cast in GoTh?

    Best moments:
    When he talks about Sean Bean, that was epic.
    “I don’t remember her name but she’s super hot” about Margaery ;)

    It says a lot that my girlfriend can pretty much name all of those unknown people they showed. When it started she had NO interest or knowledge of any of it. She’s a convert.

    I actually know the voice actor behind these vids, Jon Bailey. He’s a really nice guy, has volunteered to do so stuff for some of my projects in the past. It’s been great to see him rise in fame over the years with his various works

    Renly’s Peach,

    They’re not stupid. You read the books, where a character is presented in any given situation by name, in the series it is by image. Most casual viewers know to tell who a character is by their looks, but the names are a problem. This show has more characters than many standard shows have combined, and these characters don’t have particularly simple names (some names are even very similar). It’s not surprising that casual viewers forget names, and they’re not stupid for it- they’re just casual viewers.

    I will say that people who think Dany is called Khaleesi piss me off, though, since that’s clearly a title and not a name. If they’d call her “the Khaleesi”‘or even the mother of dragons I’d be okay, but they call her Khaleesi and that’s annoying.

  52. Kael of the Lake
    Posted April 2, 2014 at 4:08 am | Permalink

    …That is another actual problem. Most characters have 2 to 5 names and/or titles and/or nicks.
    “The thing of nouns”. I love this guy.

    thought i might not like this since honest trailers often point out problems or thing they really dont like about films or tv shows, but they really did a good job with this, it was very funny, and didnt really say anything which was seriously bad about it

    Best part was the names thing. “Nope. nope. Nuhuh. OH YEAH faceless assassin he’s awesome!!”

    I mean, I honestly don’t remember the names on most shows I watch. I couldn’t tell you the names of ANY character on True Detective despite marathoning the whole thing 2 weeks ago. Unsullied are so screwed.

    Dude it’s not a problem to call her Khaleesi when practically every other character she interacts with calls her Khaleesi on a constant basis. No one ever calls her “the Khaleesi”.

    queenofthorns,

    Only Jorah and Dorthroki call Dany Kaleesi. I believe once she banishes him, ppl will remember her real name

  59. Canis Dirus
    Posted April 2, 2014 at 10:37 am | Permalink

    Turncloak,

    Meh, I think its kinda dumb to get mad about what other people call a character. If the trade off for Unsullied thinking her name is Khaleesi is millions of viewers and a consistent budget increase, I’ll take it. Although I did draw the line when my wife suggested naming our next dog Khaleesi. Won’t stand for that lol.
