We will grant you this: The world probably has enough “trailers recut into a different genre” videos to last us until the sun collapses into itself, an event that a million YouTubers will immediately and incongruously soundtrack to “Solsbury Hill” in the moments before the solar system goes cold and the frosty winds of cataclysm blow across our dead planet.
That being said: This Bad Lip Reading reimagining of Game of Thrones as Medieval Land Fun-Time World, the greatest Ren Faire theme park comedy that will tragically never be made, justifies all of them. It is the perfection of the form. It is Lawrence of Arabia of jive-talking sex-imps and whispery, gravity belt–inventing, one-handed, incestuous-pretty-boy Kingslayers. It also features a liberal amount of fart humor. Huddle together with us and watch it one hundred thousand times as we wait for the darkness. There is warmth here, at least for now.
AND HOLY WHITE-WALKER TURDS THEY DID OUTTAKES OH HOW THE OLD GODS HAVE SMILED UPON US THIS DAY!
