WATCH: Who Needs ‘Elf on the Shelf’ When You Could Have ‘Lannister on the Bannister’
This holiday season, if your old Elf on the Shelf isn’t quite cutting it, Jimmy Kimmel and Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau have got the perfect solution for you! They call it Lannister on the Bannister and it’s honestly hilarious.
On Tuesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Coster-Waldau traded in his Lannister armor for a Santa hat and some Game of Thrones inspired elf-like garb and, of course, he kept his trusty sword with him.
Transformed into a pint-sized Lannister on the Bannister, Coster-Waldau sits perched in a home of a lovely family to help watch over the children. Lannister on the Bannister uses influences from Westeros, such as threating to chop off hands or by telling the terrifying story of the red wedding, in order to help make sure the children behave. Additionally, he comes with some awesome catchphrases like, “winter is coming.”
No one can escape the King Slayers watchful eye! Check out the hilarious skit below:
