Hilarious Video Reimagines ‘Game Of Thrones’ Intro With an Old Man Eating Soup

Without going into any spoilers, the first scene for season 7 of Game of Thrones was probably one of the most epic openers in the show’s history. Needless to say, we’re on board for whatever else this long-awaited season has to offer.

In honor of Sunday’s premiere, satirical site ClickHole posted a gag opener that’s one part ridiculous and one part grand. Viewers are essentially watching an old man eat soup to the theme of Game of Thrones.

Not gonna lie, it’s pretty epic. Soup doesn’t look half bad either.

Check out the video, posted above. We’re both impressed with how well-made this was, and kicking ourselves for not regularly eating our meals to the opening theme to the hit HBO series sooner.

If you’ve taken a life-long vow of celibacy, you might as well fill that void with drool-worthy food. The diet of a man of the Wall features a crusted rack of lamb, roasted chicken with a carrot, chestnut and date stuffing, bean and bacon stew, a pork pie, and peas porridge. For dessert, iced blueberries with sweet cream and apple cakes. It’s a lonely, delicious life.

Game of Thrones ‘Kaleesi’ Burger Comes with Red Dragon Cheese and Dinosaur Kale

kaleesi

Fret not GoT fans, it’s not a typo. No, while the latest hijink by master food pornographer PornBurger is inspired by the Mother of Dragons, it also has a kale patty instead of meat. Thus, “kale-esi.”

Don’t let the lack of horse heart fool you though. Everything about this royal tribute is pretty and formidable, from the gruesome-looking beet gratin with red dragon cheese to the fiery berbere spice-rubbed patty made from dinosaur kale. Shiitake mushroom bacon, heirloom tomatoes, sumac aioli, and 12 grain seed buns top off the rest of the massive fan service, which almost makes you wonder how enormous a Khal Drogo burger would be.

“Call this smoldering dinosaur kale burger what you will,” writes Matthew Ramsey, PornBurger mastermind, “just don’t call it weak.”
