The 'Carpool Karaoke' Opening Credits Get A 'Game Of Thrones' Makeover That Will Leave You Wanting More — VIDEO
If you want to indulge in to the magic of Game of Thrones while delighting in the cheeky goodness of Carpool Karaoke, then you're in luck. You can now do both while you watch the GoT themed Carpool Karaoke opening credits that were released on Monday, which is just as fun a makeover for any opening credits sequence that you can imagine.
Revamping the opening credits in the style of GoT is not entirely new. Parodies of the infamous minutes-long credits sequence have been done by The Simpsons, South Park, and even Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard in their own skit. Thanks to the malleability of the GoT opening credits, it's very easy to recreate the map of whichever show or its location into the steampunk-y animated style of the GoT credits.
This is the case with the new Carpool Karaoke credits. As the familiar opening bars of Game of Thrones ring out, the video opens on a map of California. The camera zooms in with the spinning bands making a cutting sound through the air. Beach cabanas and umbrellas spring up on a beach, as a boardwalk gets built and then the city of Los Angeles gets built, too. It then cuts to an animated highway (because hello, it's Carpool Karaoke) where you can see clips from various episodes before landing on the two key celebrities: GoT stars Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner.
It's a ton of fun and these revamped credits really illustrate how Carpool Karaoke tailors itself to fit its musical guests. It will be interesting to see if Carpool Karaoke continues this trend for future episodes. With Seth MacFarlane and Ariana Grande's episode coming up soon, there's certainly a chance for Carpool Karaoke to create some Family Guy-inspired credits. Or maybe a nod to Grande's own style.
Either way, this is exactly the kind of lighthearted thing you'd expect from Carpool Karaoke. The hype for Williams and Turner's episode — which premieres on Tuesday, Aug. 22 — has only increased with this clip's release.
