Watch Game of Thrones Mock Political Ads
It’s the same story every election: instead of candidates focusing on their strong points and accomplishments, they spend countless amounts of money smearing their opponents.
Mother Jones has created (in jest) three attack ads against three main players vying for power in the world of Game of Thrones, and they’re pretty fantastic. Daenerys Targaryen is labeled “wrong for dragons, wrong for the realm,” while King Joffrey gets some choice words slung at him and Robb Stark stands at the receiving end of some pretty heinous accusations. There seems to be no shortage of mudslinging in the Seven Kingdoms, unfortunately.
