We rarely get to see moments of unabashed bliss in the television adaptation of author George R. R. Martin’s famous A Song of Ice and Fire book series, but ever since King Joffrey took that fateful drink early last season, the mood in Westeros has been lightened a bit. Granted, the joy in this reel comes from the actors flubbing or forgetting their lines and not from their respective characters finding a path of personal victory, but it’s a bloody riot all the same!
Who knew Gwendoline Christie had such a great laugh? Come to that, who knew any of them did? King’s Landing doesn’t have a Chuckle Hut down in Flea Bottom to my knowledge.
The lols in this video come from every different direction in the Seven Kingdoms. From the Khaleesi forgetting lines, to Ser Pounce making a power play for more lines, to some missed steps (Oberyn, you been drinking with Cersei?), the laughs keep rolling in. For as profane as the show tends to be, all of the off-color words are bleeped so you can watch this at work, watch it with the family, put it on a loop to entertain the pets… it’s your call.
Season 5 of Game of Thrones returns in less than 7 weeks, on April 12th. I’ve attached the latest trailer below, because I know the 2 minutes worth of bloopers above are not enough to feed your addiction. I daresay 2 minutes of bloopers isn’t enough for any show, anywhere. I would happily pay thrice the price of a barrel of mead for a season’s worth of bloopers. Thrice, I say!
