This 'Game of Thrones' and 'Hamilton' Mashup Is a Pop Culture Masterpiece
Super popular television show "Game of Thrones," meet super popular Broadway musical "Hamilton."
YouTube user Jason Feifer combined his love of both in this masterful mashup, which rewrites the lyrics to "Hamilton's" opening number to reflect the storylines of the HBO drama.
For instance, the first line of the song "Alexander Hamilton" — "How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore and a Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot in the Caribbean, by providence impoverished in squalor, grow up to be a hero and a scholar?" — is tweaked to talk about Jon Snow.
"How does a bastard son of a Stark and a Dragon, born in the middle of a forgotten spot in Dornish mountains, by providence subjected to endless slander, grow up to be an undead Lord Commander?"
The mashup swings over to mention Daenerys Targaryen and her quest to take the Iron Throne and rule Westeros.
"Game of Thrones" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
