Ahead of the much-anticipated return of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ this coming Sunday, ‘Sesame Street’ has released an adorable parody video of the drama series.
Entitled ‘Game of Chairs’, the spoof video of the violent and long-running fictional drama was released on Tuesday and has racked up nearly a million views in just under twenty four hours. In it, four characters who look suspiciously like ones from the series compete in a game of musical chairs hosted by Grover. The three throne-like chairs are a bronze one made out of ping-pong bats, a silver one made of golf clubs and golf balls, and a gold one made out of baseball bats.

The six minute video is full of jokes that fans of GoT will understand, such as “the monster is blue and full of errors”. One of the muppets who looks a bit like Robb Stark interrupts and says “can we hurry this up? I have a wedding to get to”. Lots of excellent culture references, as you’d expect.

The other muppet interpretations are of Cersei Lannister, Joffrey Baratheon and Daenerys Targaryen. We won’t reveal who ends up winning the little game until you see it for yourself, but remember this – never underestimate the power of Grover.
‘Sesame Street’ has released a number of great film franchise parodies in the past, including ‘Harry Potter’, ‘Star Wars’ and ‘House of Cards’ when all were at the very peak of their popularity.
Recently revealed as the most watched HBO series of all time, ‘Game of Thrones’ returns for its fifth season on Sunday April 12th.
