'Game of Thrones' Gets The 'Seinfeld' Treatment

Fans of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones are understandably impatient for the third season premiere, having little to go on (other than the books, of course) beyond the Whitewalker-teaser in the finale, and this 15 second show promo featuring an ominous female narration over the revealed premiere date, March 31. That's over three months after the Mayan apocalypse! Doesn't HBO get this?
Well, the people at the YouTube channel Matin Comedy were fed up. So much so, that they apparently decided to take over unofficial production duties for the show, sending it in an entirely different direction and giving the gritty series a Seinfeld-esque makeover. The result is pleasing to anyone who enjoys happiness and laughter in their life.
The most impressive part comes about a minute in when the universally loathed boy-king Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) is transformed into a loveable doofus with nothing more than the power of being repeatedly slapped by Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) to a laugh track.
So far, the video has clocked over 365,000 views. So you might want to check it out before HBO shuts it down over copyright infringement.
No word yet on which cast member's career will come to an unceremonious end after a racist tirade in a comedy club.
