Dragons: bad for the economy, bad for Westeros. The geniuses over at Mother Jones decided to scratch our Game of Thrones itch with these three hilarious mock political ads that imagine what the major players of the hit HBO series would run into if they were trying to seize the Iron Throne in today’s political climate. They’re all awesome, so get to watching them.
Daenerys Targaryen – is she really the Mother of Dragons, or is this the Mother of Coverups? Learn a little more about the khaleesi in this hard-hitting ad.
Joffrey Baratheon gets a little taste of the birther treatment with this attack ad, which also folds in a little bit of twincest to get the pundits talking.
Robb Stark comes out looking like the best of the lot, with a commercial parodying the Paris Hilton-mocking John McCain ad. The bit about his “illegal alien nanny” had me rolling.
So who do you think would make a great subject for a future one of these ads? I can see Tyrion Lannister working, as well as Littlefinger and maybe Stannis Baratheon.
