As a fan of the HBO series Game of Thrones, I’ve been counting the days until the series returned to air. I’m not the only one, it seems, as Los Angeles based comedians Chris Starr and Lauren Flans (amongst others) have created a pretty amazing sketch in celebration of the long, cold wait for more Thrones. It also takes a shot at another popular franchise, but I’ll leave you to watch and find out…
On the subject of Game of Thrones parody in general, it really doesn’t get any better than CollegeHumor’s fantastic 8bit game parody. It’s really fantastic, and it makes me wish an entrepreneurial game designer would just make games like this. I’d pay a buck or two to download something this fun.

But hurry up and catch up! The premier is coming before you know it!
