This ‘Game of Thrones’-‘Friends’ Credits Mash-Up Is All You Need

+

The world of Westeros is a grim, dark place where brothers fuck sisters, hands get cut off without a moment’s notice, rape and pillaging are more common than singing and dancing, and wars involving chain of succession are fought in tandem with wars against soulless, murderous snow zombies. Not so much fun! But here’s something to make it sunnier: a mash-up video that reimagines the Game of Thrones opening credits set to the Friends theme song, showing the Westerosi in smiling, happier moments in between all the death and destruction, along with whoopsy-daisy moments like Bran getting thrown out of the tower and poor, poor Ned Stark getting betrayed by Littlefinger. So no one told you life was going to be this way, it sings. You’re no longer the Hand of the King, you owe a ton of money to the Iron Bank of Braavos, and your dad won’t even name you heir to Casterly Rock. (Because this song was probably meant for Tyrion Lannister, who’s frequently given the shortest stick for all his efforts.) Still, it’ll all work out if you’ve got your friends—or loyal swordsmen and prostitutes, either one.
