Watch Coldplay's hilarious GAME OF THRONES: THE MUSICAL!

1 min read


Game of Thrones, HBO’s smash hit adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy epic, is filled with familial drama, political intrigue, engaging characters, fantastic world-building, sexual appeal and no shortage of shocking violence or jawdropping plot twists. In other words, the very opposite of anything Coldplay has ever done.

Yet, for some reason, for the US debut of the Red Nose Day charity event, somebody thought it would be a good idea to put the two together for a comedy skit. And whoever that person was, needs a great big fat kiss, because this is brilliant! “It’s George R.R. Martin meets Chris Martin – what could go wrong?!”

Watch the “behind-the-scenes documentary” on the making of this fake musical (which I now really wish was a real thing) below, and then check out some of the individual musical numbers below it, which include Peter Dinklage singing about dead characters and emilia Clarke as a “Rastafarian Targaryen”.

How brilliant was that?! Also, who else desperately wants to see Taken: On Ice now?
