The Best Game of Thrones Mash-Ups and Parodies

Words: Josh Rakic

From Brother of Dragons to Medieval Land Fun-Time World, the Internet has had a lot of fun with Game of Thrones over the last 6 years

We trawled the annals of the internet to find the funniest GoT mash-ups and parodies from the past six years. That’s right—winter has been coming for six freakin’ years

Brother of Dragons: Martin Lawrence Meets GOT 

Martin Lawrence is the latest victim of long line of hilarious GoT mash-ups. This time around, YouTuber PizzaPartyFX combines GoT with the comedian’s forgettable 2001 farse, Black Knight. The clip features some of the allegedly hilarious moments from Black Knight—where Lawrence plays a worker at a medieval theme park who time travels back to 14th century England—intercut with some of GoT’s most memorable scenes.

Peeno H’ghar: The Faceless Man Gets the Kimmy Schmidt Treatment

Anything from the brain of Tina Fey is worth watching, and when her work on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is combined with Game of Thrones, it’s the true coming together of the light and the dark. One of the best things on Kimmy Schmidt is the character Titus Andromedon (played by Titus Burgess), whose outrageously silly song “Peeno Noir,” went viral last year. The geniuses behind Practical Folks decided to mash up Titus’s merry and hypnotic tune with one of GoT’s most brooding characters—the man of many faces but one name, Jaqen H’ghar. The result? See for yourself.

Ride Along circa 1400 A.D? Game of Thrones as a Buddy Comedy 

Like Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon (or Kevin Hart in every single movie), this reimagining from the gang over at Vulture casts Tyrion Lannister and Bronn as an odd-couple comedy duo. It’s cut like a cheesy Hollywood trailer, and the added narration feels very reminiscent of the 2011 Franco stoner flick Your Highness

Honest Trailers v Game of Thrones

If YouTube died tomorrow, we’d be thankful for one channel above all else: Screen Junkies. For eight years they’ve blessed the web with their parodies of countless films, TV shows and pop culture icons, but nothing has transcended the parody genre into mainstream consciousness quite as much as their Honest Trailer series, which tears apart and highlights the contrivances in anything and everything popular. Just be warned, once you watch these videos, it will send you into a black hole of online streaming. Their take on The Revenant is nothing short of sensational.

Princes of the Universe: If Game of Thrones Came Out in the 1990s

Nothing screams 1990s television more than an up-tempo musical intro and thick yellow credits. With Queen’s “I Want It All” dubbed over a grainy VHS-style edit, this version of Game of Thrones is every bit the campy ‘90s drama à la Highlander: The Series or Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.

Wet Hot Game of Thrones: Bad Lip Reading Version

Parodies of coming-of-age flicks from the 1980s are almost always funny. Wet Hot American Summer anyone? When the crew at Bad Lip Reading fashioned Game of Thrones into a medieval theme park with an unruly staff, hilarity was immanent. As Medieval Land Fun-Time World, the park is on the brink of financial ruin and Ned Stark has seven days to save it from the evil rich guys. Need we say anymore?
