The 8 Funniest Spoofs Of 'Game Of Thrones' On The Whole Internet, Ranked
Is it just me, or is anyone else in the mood for some Game of Thrones parodies right now? Winter is not only coming, but it's arrived, and instead of missing sunlight, fans have been missing Westeros. Not only are we between seasons of the HBO show, but George R.R. Martin has acknowledged that The Winds of Winter might not be out in 2016, so the show will officially be passing it by, and us book-readers will have to find something else to be smug about. *Sobs* But since I'm sure we've all already cried ourselves to sleep enough nights wondering if our favorite characters will survive the next chapter or episode, it's time to laugh again.
And what better way to laugh than with parodies of the series itself? (No, but seriously, there's already so much information to hold inside my head with every GoT plot line and twist that there's no room in mine for any new characters. Parodies forever.) The makers of these spoofs are people like you, who love the show so much that they want to make fun of it, so you're among friends. No sellswords in the bunch, I promise. So without further ado, here they are, the eight funniest spoofs of Game of Thrones on the whole wide internet, for all your hiatus needs. Just, like I said... try not to get too attached to any of the characters. You know the drill.
8. The Pugs of Westeros
Even with no discernible plot or lines of dialogue, The Pugs of Westeros is a can't-miss take on the original. Pugs in costumes, you guys, just sitting there panting as GoT characters. You can't lose.
7. School of Thrones
Just when you thought things couldn't get harder than living in the actual world of the books and the series, imagine doing it as high schoolers. No thank you!
6. Honest Trailers
Hey maybe everyone should distance themselves completely from Sean Bean, a.k.a. Ned Stark? The folks at Honest Trailers seem to have figured out that that's the kiss of death, so just a thought!
5. Game Of Thrones... On The CW
This. Is. Perfect. Because it's so true. This is precisely how Game of Thrones would be promoted if it aired on The CW instead of HBO — with all the romance and intrigue right out front.
4. Jon Snow At A Dinner Party
No matter how attracted you think you are to Kit Harington, Seth Meyers proves that the last thing you want to do is invite him to your dinner party. Seriously, someone seat this guy next to Debbie Downer.
3. Game Of Thrones, '90s Edition
Westeros plus the '90s is my everything.
2. The College Humor Recap
Ah, the simple joy of nonsense words. The geniuses of College Humor get it exactly right by getting it exactly wrong with this recap, and I couldn't love it more.
1. Game of Thrones as Seinfeld
And finally, the best of the best, we have Game of Thrones reinterpreted as an episode of Seinfeld. It's amazing how much the foreboding music in the background affects our viewing of the series! Take it away and replace it with a soundtrack and the signature Seinfeld chords, and it's an entirely different show!
And I wish this is where I could put a link leading you to the new season of Game of Thrones, but since we don't have that, I hope this will tide you over in the meantime! Spring is coming, I promise!
