Well, we know what you have been doing in the past 24 hours: Watching the new "Game of Thrones" Season 6 trailer ... again ... and again. Fans waited a long time for this one, and it's paying off for HBO.

According to Entertainment Weekly, HBO confirmed that the new trailer has already broken records, with eight million views on YouTube and 22 million on the official Facebook page within 24 hours. The previous high was the first Season 5 trailer, which had 27 million views on its first day. So 30 million in 24 hours -- actually less than 24 hours, since it's more than 30 million at this point -- is very impressive indeed.
There are several reasons for the intense interest in Season 6, including the fate of Jon Snow, but also the many other characters who were left in really bad positions at the end of Season 5. Plus, this is the first time that book readers are kinda/sorta on the same blank page as the TV-only viewers. There are still some scenes ahead from the books, but a lot of pure surprises, too, which is refreshing and scary.

Rewatch the full trailer over here, to add more views to the record-breaking tally, and speculation-lovers can read about the possible Jon Snow-related flashback the trailer teases.

Season 6 starts April 24 on HBO.
