Game of Thrones: Olympic high jumper Brandon Starc draws Bran Stark comparisons
The Rio Olympics have been just as full of memes as outstanding athletic feats. The latest combination features Australian high jumper Brandon Starc. Starc’s name is just about one letter removed from Bran Stark of Game of Thrones, and this resemblance did not go unnoticed on Twitter.
Viewers supplied many of jokes, some centered around the irony that Starc’s sport is high jump while Bran broke his back falling from a tower, and others just reveled in the coincidence.
