'Game of Thrones' spoof brings laughs to medieval theme park
Keeping track of the numerous "Game of Thrones" characters just got a lot more interesting as they've been reimagined in a hilarious new spoof video from the folks at Bad Lip Reading.
Bad Lip Reading has previously taken on "Twilight," "The Hunger Games," President Obama, the NFL and much more. In this fake trailer for "Medieval Land Fun-Time World," Ned Stark is "Eddie," the manager of a theme park who has a week to get his lackluster employees whipped into shape for the park's grand opening. For almost six minutes, the video dubs new dialogue over scenes from "GoT."
All the bloody drama of HBO's fantasy series is drained and replaced with a cheesy soundtrack and laugh-worthy lines. The best scenes feature Joffrey "JoJo" Baratheon and Tyrion "Terry" Lannister. The spoof maintains two key things here — JoJo is still worth hating, and the gangster Terry is still the best character on the show.
Jamie Lannister is "Jimmy Whisper," who delivers all of his lines in hushed tones: "Today, I had a cheesesteak, then I got a Walkman," he tells Eddie. And Petyr "Petey" Baelish is a hit at the dinner table when he asks everyone how they liked "the kitten meat I put in my burgers everyone just ate."
The video is already headed toward 2 million views in less than a day. And BLR has put up outtakes and extended scenes, too.
The real "Game of Thrones" returns in 2014 for season four.
