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 Reinerâ€™s seminal classic, The Princess Bride with the raw brutality, vulgarity, and raunchiness of HBOâ€™s Games of Thrones.
The video mash-up comes from the warped minds of Break.com writer/editor Todd Spence and YouTubeâ€™s Shawn Kohne. It can be viewed here below.
We are all familiar with the source material. The trailer incorporates Peter Falkâ€™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. â€œFencingâ€¦ fightingâ€¦ tortureâ€¦ giantsâ€¦â€ Let’s not forget the kissing parts. And since weâ€™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, â€œYou killed my father, prepare to die.â€ After a series of gruesome GoT scenes (YEAH, GOLDEN HELMET!!!) we cut to Falk, â€œyou look nervous.â€ This is as good a 2 minutes youâ€™ll see all week.
