We’re used to Swift’s parodies, but as far as they go we think this one takes the cake. Nerdist recently published a genius Game of Thrones/Taylor Swift mash-up video called “Blank Page,” based on Swifty’s hit track “Blank Space.”
The video is essentially about Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin and his kill list — if you’ve ever watched the show or read the books, then you will know your favorite character can be killed off mercilessly and at any time.
Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke in the HBO series and Emily Rudd in the video) is a fan favorite, and in the mash-up she becomes the victim of Martin, played by Nick Mundy.
It starts off with Mundy singing, “Dragons, dwarves, castles, kings, I can pen you incredible scenes.”
But some of the other gems you can expect to hear include, “You could die in a sword fight, or burn in dragon’s flames. Just when they think it’s all right, I cross off another name. So much death in the Seven Kingdoms, you could say I’m insane. ‘Cause you know I love king slayers, and you love Game of Thrones!”
Season 5 of HBO’s Game of Thrones will premiere on April 12, 2015 — and like us, we are sure you cannot contain your excitement. But for now, watch this epic mash-up below.
