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.

If you mess with the “Dinklage” – you get the bitch slap that your momma is gonna feel in the morning. After watching Game of Thrones, I am sure all of you NerdBastards like “King Joffery” about as much as I do. YouTube user WestorsTales has taken this Tyrion slap scene to new heights by looping it for ten brutally beautiful minutes, while setting it to the music of Led Zeppelin’s “Achilles’ Last Stand.”

I haven’t laughed so hard in the first minute of a video in a long time. The music choice is out of left field but it works. Peter Dinklage has been putting out an Emmy worthy portrayal of Tyrion, If he doesn’t get at least a Best Supporting Actor Nonination for his role in Game of Thrones, I’ll most likely do nothing but fume, kick a couple cats (I love dogs too much to ever kick one.), and make pithy comments about the lack of credibility in American Television and Movie Award shows.

As much as I like Dinklage I have to also bend the knee to Jack Gleeson, the young actor who plays Joffrey. He’s doing a remarkable job of portraying a character that everyone lovers to hate. My favorite part of the video is right before the slap, Joffery says, “I hate the wailing of women,” and then BAMM!!! Tyrion smacks the crap out of Joffery, and Joffery begins to wail . . . like a woman! ENJOY!
