HBO Digitally Removes Coffee Cup From Last Week’s ‘Game Of Thrones’, It Wasn’t Starbucks After All

 

Warning: Game of Thrones Spoilers Ahead


Fans of the groundbreaking HBO series Game of Thrones spotted what was almost undeniably a Starbucks coffee cup this past Sunday’s episode.

Without going too heavy into it, the scene took place during a feast held in the halls of Winterfell. In one shot you can clearly see a modern cup of coffee on the table in front of the Dragon Queen Daenerys Targaryen.

News spread of the botch and wild theories ranging from time travel, revenge of the cinematographer, and even Starbucks product placement all invaded social platforms.

HBO debunked those rumors in a statement that pretty much squashed all the theories and simply owned up to the fact that it was an accident…and has corrected it.

Subscribers of HBO Go and NOW will notice that the cup has been digitally erased from the episode. At the time of reporting, you can still see the cup if you have the HBO extension of Hulu, but it’ll probably be a matter of hours before they wipe that footage too.

It was also confirmed by The Wall Street Journal that the cup wasn’t from Starbucks, but simply craft services. There goes the Starbucks advertisement theory.

HBO also mentioned that with a production as big as Game of Thrones, items from craft services have occasionally been missed and made it on camera. Though luckily none as noticeable as that coffee cup.

Game of Thrones fans, the final two episodes will be airing on May 12 and May 19. With two episodes left, which will presumably be some of television’s moved viewed content for years to come, you bet your sweet ass fans will dissect every scene for the tiniest of details. Hopefully nothing else slips by.

Some Guy Found a Medieval Guide to Cooking Unicorn Meat

unicorn

How do you tell if you’ve found the perfect cut of unicorn? Is it the marbling, signature to stock raised on fairy dust feed? Is it the grade, prímsang, corennes, or selecte? And what about the rarer breeds? Does a Narnian unicorn really taste all that better than an Equestrian one?

About a year ago, the British library discovered a recipe for unicorn meat in a Fourteenth Century cookbook. Unfortunately, supposed royal chef Geoffrey Fule left no insight as to which Ye Olde Ralfe’s might carry the choicest unicorn steaks in all the land, but he did understand the magic of a few garlic cloves.

Reads the British Library’s description:

“After recipes for herring, tripe and codswallop (fish stew, a popular dish in the Middle Ages) comes that beginning ‘Taketh one unicorne.’ The recipe calls for the beast to be marinaded in cloves and garlic, and then roasted on a griddle. The cookbook’s compiler, doubtless Geoffrey Fule himself, added pictures in its margins, depicting the unicorn being prepared and then served.”

Sounds yummy, although, if it’s anything like horse, we suspect it could be a bit gamey. Might be better to stick to the canned dragon meat.

Canned Dragon Meat Pairs Well with Khaleesi Tears

Dragon-Meat

From the makers of Unicorn Meat comes the next reasonable sacrifice in the imaginary animal food chain: Dragon Meat.

What I like to think would be a spicier version of it’s rainbow lovin’ counterpart, this Dragon Meat is sure to be a hit at your next Knights of the Round Table meeting.

No longer do you have to risk life and limb for a literal taste of victory. Put down your gauntlets, lay down Excalibur and grab a can of Dragon Meat, filled with your daily dose of “havoc, terror, inferno, destruction, magic and rage.”

Spoiler Alert: This isn’t actually edible. It’s a stuffed dragon’s head. Just an FYI. Don’t try to eat it. Seriously.

Canned Dragon Meat $12.99 @Think Geek

Move Over Horsemeat, Unicorn ‘Cuts’ Are All the Rage

Even if you’re a vegetarian, chances are that you’ve heard about the different cuts which make up beef: chuck, sirloin, rib, brisket, and the list goes on.

But unicorn meat? Not so much. If we had to take a guess, we’d have to say sugar, spice, and everything nice — but unicorns aren’t exactly little girls with superpowers . . . are they?

Naw — it’s more like fairy dust, cupcakes, rainbows, sunshine, and kittens. Oh, and sporks. At least, that’s what designer Luis Diaz thinks. His clever design, which can be found on t-shirts and iPhone cases at Threadless, breaks down these ever-elusive, magical creatures — for those who have never seen them in the flesh.

And that glittery, majestical horn? Yes, you can chalk that up to the power of bacon.
