The Internet is truly a wonderful place. After all, where else could you find such a hilarious and perfect mash-up as Princess of Thrones, a trailer combining the child-like enthusiasm and charm of Rob Reiner’s seminal classic, The Princess Bride with the raw brutality, vulgarity, and raunchiness of HBO’s Games of Thrones.
The video mash-up comes from the warped minds of Break.com writer/editor Todd Spence and YouTube’s Shawn Kohne. It can be viewed here below.
We are all familiar with the source material. The trailer incorporates Peter Falk’s role as grandpa in The Princess Bride who shows up to read his sick grandson (Fred Savage) a story. With every detail we flash to scenes from Games of Thrones. “Fencing”¦ fighting”¦ torture”¦ giants”¦” Let’s not forget the kissing parts. And since we’re talking HBO and Game of Thrones, you can only imagine where they go for these scenes.
No scene mashes better then Oberyn Martel as Inigo Montoya telling The Mountain, “You killed my father, prepare to die.” After a series of gruesome GoT scenes (YEAH, GOLDEN HELMET!!!) we cut to Falk, “you look nervous.” This is as good a 2 minutes you’ll see all week.
