Winter is coming to Sesame Street, apparently.
The long-running children’s show is everybody’s go-to source for learning your ABCs, 123s, and even pop culture, following this delightful segment that parodies the hit HBO show, Game of Thrones.
In the skit, Grover Bluejoy (love it) teaches the audience as well as puppets designed to look like Daenerys, Cersei, Joffrey, Stannis, Tyrion, [a less busty] Melisandre, and even Ned Stark how to play the “Game of Chairs.” Basically, the War of the Five Kings turns into a medieval game of musical chairs as the puppets fight for a seat on thrones made from ping pong paddles, wiffle ball bats, and golf clubs.
While the toddlers in the audience might be more amused by Grover’s repetitive incompetency, GoT fans will find a few charming references and even spoilers woven into the children’s programming.
Just remember, when you play the game of chairs, you either win, or you go have a snack before nap time.
Can you tell me how to get, how to get to the Red Keep? Take a look at this kid-friendly battle for the Iron Throne…
