Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t seen the latest season of Game of Thrones, you’ll probably want to stray away from this video before you make a huge mistake.
On paper, one wouldn’t draw too many comparisons between Game of Thrones
and Arrested Development
. Sure they’re both backed by a notoriously large internet following and they chronicle the story of a broken family, but that’s about where the similarities end. Well, unless you throw in a decent Ron Howard impression in the mix.
Cracked recently created a hilarious mash-up video of the two shows, recapping Game of Thrones Season 3 events in an awesome Arrested Development-style montage. From Ned Stark’s early beheading to the Red Wedding, Cracked’s mash-up incorporates some of Arrested Development’s most frequently used running gags. Who knew that clever wordplay and perfectly timed Simon & Garfunkel soundbites were all you needed to turn Game of Thrones into a comedy?
