***WARNING, SPOILERS BELOW IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED SEASONS 1-4***
(Original video for reference)
I am not sure how many people have seen the video or played Dumb Ways To Die on their phone, but I know it had like 100 billion downloads a few years ago. The game was always a fun way to pass a couple of minutes while getting that goddamn awesome hook stuck in your head. But whoever took that song and animated the biggest Game of Thrones deaths over it is a genius. I thought I was hyped for tomorrow night’s premiere until I saw Khaleesi’s dickhead brother get a liquid golden crown and Joffrey die all over again. Now I am fucking STOKED. If the trade-off is that I have to hear that song in my head until 9 PM tonight, so be it. And sure, maybe Theon isn’t technically “dead”, but if your dick gets cut off by a raving lunatic and you now think that you are a dog, you certainly cannot be considered “alive”.
However, not all of the video was fun to watch. #RIP to basically every Stark I ever loved except for Arya. I flat out refuse to rewatch the Red Wedding and I turn away from the TV in the beginning of the next episode when Robb’s dead body has his dead direwolf’s head stapled on. I need Arya’s body count to reach triple digits by the end of this season so I can feel like Ned and Robb’s deaths were properly avenged (probably not going to happen).
Anyway, here are a few more videos to whet your appetite for tonight’s premiere.
If the video above wasn’t bloody enough for you, here is every death from seasons 1-4:
Season 5 previews:
Compilation of the best Red Wedding reactions:
Arya’s reaction to the Red Wedding:
Compilation of the best reactions to Oberyn Martell getting his head popped the fuck off:
Uncut long shot from last season’s battle on The Wall:
Giants shooting giant bow and arrows:
And of course, the best show/opening sequence in TV history. I just have this song playing on loop in my house right now. In my defense, I am not what you would call a “cool person”.
PS- “Dumb ways to die. So many dumb ways to die. Dumb ways to diiiiiie. So many dumb ways to die”. Sorry, but you know it’s still stuck in your head.
