The Simpson’s have done some pretty good couch gags over the 20 plus years on the air. Recently, they turned their satirical eye on Game of Thrones by mashing Springfield with Westeros.

Fox took down clips on websites and blogs with Digital Spy (a go-to site for my geeky interests) as the only place I can share the video.
It’s not about profiting from this video, but sharing it for a laugh. Much like Downton Abbey’s rap parodies, Game of Thrones permeates the most unlikely places. (I keep waiting for someone to dress up like Petyr Baelish and sing It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp.)

Unfortunately Brent Bambury hosting and not the usual dreamy Jian Ghomeshi.
No I didn’t, but I will make sure to listen now. 🙂
