Want to be impressed? This fan-made trailer for the upcoming fourth season of Game of Thrones is sure to do the trick, as it’s actually better than the veritable smorgasbord of trailers and other offerings (seriously: there is quite a lot) HBO has released thus far. It may give some folks pause — using a Lorde cover of the Tears For Fears’ song “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” is likely to ruffle a few stuffy feathers — but it ultimately hits all the right notes to give a truly bone-chilling look at what’s in store for the Westerosi clans, at each other’s necks for power, control, and freedom.
Using nothing more than the previously released teasers and trailers is all it took for YouTuber Lady Dog Trailers to fluidly — and impressively — match up song sentiment with all-too-appropriate character quips and clips. Even more impressive is that she insists the trailer is only her second attempt ever at creating a video (the first was for Harry Potter over 8 years ago). To call it not too shabby would be an understatement.
