“Old Town Road” gets a ‘Game of Thrones’ remix

Game of Thrones fans are now preparing for the last season’s debut this end of the week, hypothesizing about which characters will endure this residual group of episodes. Obviously, it didn’t take long for somebody to mix that expectation with another popular culture element of this current week.

The Ringer as of late shared a video, which rethinks Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Old Town Road” with certain Thrones-themed lyrics.

Fans have had a wide exhibit of responses to the parody, esteeming it everything from entertaining to a little cringeworthy. In any case, it very well might work with regards to diverting Game of Thrones fans from the apprehension that may be ahead.

“The last season of Thrones seemed to be designed to break us,” series star Kit Harington uncovered in a past interview. “Everyone was broken at the end. I don’t know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so fucking tiring. We were sleep deprived. It was like it was designed to make you think, Right, I’m fucking sick of this. I remember everyone walking around towards the end going, ‘I’ve had enough now. I love this, it’s been the best thing in my life, I’ll miss it one day – but I’m done.’”

“From the beginning, we’ve talked about how the show would end.” maker David Benioff as of late clarified. “A good story isn’t a good story if you have a bad ending. Of course we worry. It’s also part of the fun of any show that people love arguing about it. I loved the way David Chase ended The Sopranos [with its surprising cut to black]. I was one of those people who thought my TV had gone out. I got up and was checking the wires, unable to believe my cable had gone out in the most important moment of my favorite TV series. I think that was the best of all possible endings for that show. But a lot of people hated it. I’ve gotten into a lot of arguments with people about why that was a great ending, but people felt legitimately cheated and that’s their right to feel that way…Either way, it works for me.. Once it cuts to black nobody knows, and that’s what great about it. The only sad part is nobody can ever do that ending again.”
