Game of Thrones: Pop-culture mash-up debuted by HBO at Comic Con 2015

Posted on

As if the continually record-breaking ratings weren’t enough to prove that everybody watches Game of Thrones, HBO showed off a pop-culture mash-up at Comic-Con in San Diego on Friday of the most notable times the series has been spoofed or referenced in other TV shows.

There was that time Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was the worst dinner guest ever on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the time even Sesame Street mocked the rampant character death that is a trademark of the series, and, of course, the time The Simpsons aired an entire GoT-inspired intro.

In other Game of Thrones news straight out of Comic-Con, HBO released an audition reel featuring Natalie Dormer, Gwendoline Christie and many others, and director David Nutter confirmed Stannis Baretheon’s fate. Oh, and the President (of the United States!) made Nutter tell him whether Jon Snow is really dead. (He is. But what does “dead” really mean, anyway?)
