What If ‘Game of Thrones’ Had Political Attack Ads

This is the closest that this NerdBastard ever wants to get to posting political crap on anything related to NerdBastards. We all get enough of that crap in everyday life and let’s face it, nothing anyone says on the Internet is really gonna change the way we each individually think about politics and life.

YouTube user MotherjonesVideo has put together two pretty damn close to actual political ads one would see in an old fashioned mud slinging campaign. One can just imagine the town crier ringing a bell and yelling, at the top of his lungs, these ads at passing peasants, noblemen, and noble ladies.

That April 1st premiere date is getting ever closer! In anticipation¬†HBO has been releasing tons of behind-the-scenes footage as well as videos about the characters and places we’ll be getting know in season two of Game of Thrones. We bastards, and I’m guessing most of you, simply can’t get enough!


But here’s what we’ve got for you today, a new character profile for Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane), brother to the late King Robert and wannabe-King Renly. Stannis is one tough dude, and he’s not easy to love, or even like. I’m really interested to see what audiences, particularly those who haven’t read the books, think of him.
