Love Game of Thrones? The NFL? This Trailer Is For You!


I am a huge geek. I’m also a devoted NFL fan. I was born in Washington State. I have lived here my entire life. And I have lived in Seattle for 18 years—more than enough time to become a rabid Seahawks fan.

In a few minutes, I am heading down to Century Link field to watch the Seahawks host the 49ers, the victor the champion of the NFConference. The winner also goes to the Super Bowl!

But when I saw the video above, I grinned from ear to ear. This trailer was created in Austrian to promote today’s two games (the other being the New England Patriots vs. Denver Broncos). Why is it cool? Because they took the opening from HBO’s Game of Thrones and threw in the NFL! Bad. Ass!

So what do you think? Love it? Think it is pure grandiose plagiarism? Think the nerd community and NFL community shouldn’t cross?

Me? Love it!

Oh, and go Seahawks!
