Months after Season 6 is over, Game of Thrones parodies and spoofs still rule the internet. Here are a bunch of them.
We being our journey at College Humor, and a video called Why Summer is Women’s Winter. It’s all a play on the Stark words, Winter is Coming. It’s a little, well, college humorous, but points for effort.
I can’t say I’m familiar with the idea of women freezing in the summer months while men enjoy the air conditioning. Is this really a thing?
Next, we have a hilarious GIF from El Pinko at Giphycat, a spoof Murder She Wrote. Only instead of Angela Lansbury as amateur detective Jessica Fletcher, we have George R.R. Martin as himself. I give you: Murder He Never Finished.
Note that George R.R. Martin is writing about Clegaebowl, a long-held fan theory about brothers Sandor and Gregor Clegane. “Clegane-Bowl was not the jolly day it had been marketed as…” If the show is any indication, Cleganebowl might never happen, so we may have to make due with this. There’s also the added bonus of George R.R. Martin’s head bobbing happily along on Angela Lansbury’ body.
Here’s an odd tidbit: Did you know that the actor who portrays Thoros of Myr on Game of Thrones, Paul Kaye, had a gig back in the 90s where he trolled Hollywood stars on the red carpet? Kaye would dye his hair red, wear thick glasses, and crash celebrity events in character as celebrity interviewer Dennis Pennis. Once the stars were lulled by his false credentials and seemingly ambiguous questions, he would turn the interview on a dime and ask something mean-spirited…or funny, depending on how you look at it. Here’s that:
I know what you’re thinking: “There’s no way that’s Paul Kaye!” Well, by way of proof, Kaye recorded a video much later in life reminiscing about his time as Pennis.
See? I told you it was him. And now Kaye has a role as a powerful Red Priest on the most popular television series on the world. Based on when we saw him last, it looks like he’ll be returning for Game of Thrones Season 7. Life is weird.
Finally, since we’re in the midst of the 2016 Summer Olympics, it seems only fitting that we re-purpose this 2014 video of former Game of Thrones actor Charles Dance giving a pep-talk to Rugby fans before the Rugby World Cup. Watch and be inspired.
“There will be pain. And there will be blood.” It’s hard to watch this and not hear Tywin Lannister.
