Watch: ‘Game of Thrones’ Opening Theme Goes 8-Bit with Super Mario Treatment
This week, mash-up extraordinaire NicksplosionFX shared his take on what the Game of Thrones opening theme would look like in 8-bit form.
The video, which has all the familiar sounds and feelings of our gaming youth, has received more than 1.26 million views since going live four days ago.
Game of Thrones season four is currently airing on HBO. The show, based on George R. R. Martin’s bestselling novels, was renewed for a fifth and sixth season earlier this spring.
The Super Mario treatment wasn’t the only Game of Thrones-theme video to go viral this week. Following last weekend’s episode, “The Laws of Gods and Men,” some genius produced this alternate ending. (Obviously, don’t watch if you’re not all caught up with the show).
