In support of Red Nose Day, a 12-minute behind-the-scenes mockumentary about Coldplay’s ‘Game of Thrones: ‘The Musical’ was released online.
The hilarious clip shows the real cast of HBO’s Game of Thrones display a mix of scepticism and enthusiasm for the controversial idea. Liam Neeson narrates while the cast rehearse songs like the bombastic ‘Rastafarian Targaryan’ and the Jon Snow-fronted ‘Wildling’ (sung to the tune of The Troggs’ ‘Wild Thing’). In addition to the array of musical numbers we also get to see a rare, warm exchange between Ramsay Bolton and Theon Greyjoy; something that’s still oddly uncomfortable to watch.
Interestingly enough, Coldplay does have a direct tie to Game of Thrones in the form of their drummer Will Champion who made a cameo in the 3rd season episode ‘The Rains of Castamere’ (AKA ‘The Red Wedding’).
If you’re not into Game of Thrones you can at least get excited for more stage-adaptations coming from Chris Martin including ‘Breaking Bad: The Ballet’ and ‘Taken: On Ice!’
