The third entry of Machinimaâ€™s YouTube series Real Fake History tackles one of televisionâ€™s most thrilling shows, Game of Thrones. Real Fake History treats film and TVâ€™s biggest battles and fights as the History Channel would treat war footage, with stock footage from the source materials and â€œinterviewsâ€ with characters who lived the tale. Long before Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) was Caesarâ€™ed by the Nightâ€™s Watch to conclude season 5, he first betrayed the Wildlings and helped lead the Battle at Castle Black against Mance Rayder (Ciaran Hinds) and a massive wildling army that included giants.
Check out the video below.
As usual, narrator Phil Morris introduces our â€œhistoryâ€ and discusses the role of leadership in warfare. Snowâ€™s report of a 100,000 strong army charging the wall were met with a mixed opinion by the higher ups in the Watch. We then get a sit down interview with… one of the giants! His name is Bu Won Dun Bu Way (which for the very Lord of the Rings-like Game of Thrones is not exactly a stretch). He says the giants were tricked by the wildlings into battle with promises of food, in particular, cake.
â€œGiants told there was cake inside wall,â€ he says.
Bu Won (Dave Mattey) makes it clear that giants are usually peaceful, but will kill if annoyed. â€œNo cake annoys me.â€ Unfortunately, the conversation gets to him and when he presses the interviewer for his beloved cake, it doesnâ€™t end well. They also preview the love story between Jon Snow and Ygritte (Rose Leslie), and who can blame her really? I mean… himâ€¦
