‘Game of Thrones’ Gets the Bad Lip Reading Treatment as “Medieval Land Fun-Time World”
A few months ago, we saw the folks at Bad Lip Reading branching out from the usual movie and music video fare to their first TV parody with ‘The Walking Dead,’ and now it seems we’ve reached the next rung on the ladder. ‘Game of Thrones‘ gets the most inventive and extended parody yet as an adventurous indie medieval theme park comedy, and oh yes, there will be Tyrion pimp-smacking.
Throwing in a good deal more effects than usual to sell the concept of ‘Game of Thrones’ as a medieval theme park, the “Bad Lip Reading” parody also gets the most out of bringing the isolated ‘Game of Thrones’ characters together with creative cutting. Most of the footage comes from the first and second season, reinventing the characters as high school figures, with a few insane twists for good measures, naturally. Kitten burgers, anyone?
While we wait for ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4, HBO has cast in known roles Joel Fry as Hizdahr zo Loraq, Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Mace Tyrell, Pedro Pascal as Prince Oberyn Martell, Indira Varma as Oberyn’s lover Ellaria Sand, and ‘Sherlock’ star Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris. ‘Banshee‘ star Joseph Gatt will appear in a role speculated to be that of Wildling chieftan Styr, Magnar of Thenn, while ‘Treme”s Michiel Huisman will replace Ed Skrein as Daario Naharis, and Hafthor Julius Bjornsson will take over the role of Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane from Ian Whyte, among other recastings. Previous season characters Lysa Arryn (Kate Dickie), Ser Alliser Thorne (Owen Teale), Rorge (Andy Beckwith) and Janos Slynt (Dominic Carter) will likely all return, among others.
