Game of Thrones is a huge success and saying that almost sounds like an understatement, it’s one of the biggest television shows in pop culture. The characters are known even outside of the fandom and one company just found a way to market that and leave a lasting impression.
KFC UK and Britain’s official YouTube account posted the video recently showing Hodor working behind the counter at KFC when he slowly begins to realize that…lunchtime is coming. The best part of the commercial, aside from the repetitive ‘chicken and fries’ – much like the ‘Hodor’ in Game of Thrones (but less sad) – is that they actually used Kristian Nairn in the skit.
If you haven’t seen season 6 of Game of Thrones this might not make perfect sense to you, but it’s not something you totally have to avoid. So what we’re saying is, that there are not any spoilers here to ruin the season so you can watch and enjoy it with the rest of us.
Season 7 is set to return on July 16th, so if you’re not caught up you’ve got plenty of time (and coffee) to prepare for next season.
Do you have a strange craving for the chicken and rice now? We know we do, and what better to do than eat it while watching some episodes of the series. Clever move, KFC, very clever.
