Lights Out

Three brothers, one crown, and a whole lot of fury. Such is House Baratheon, captured here in clever rhymes and crafty T-shirts. Plus, it might be the best repurposing of Wiz Khalifa in the history of time.

Instructions for use: Play repeatedly until Game of Thrones returns -- in f--king April.

Apology of the Day

A little attention to detail by a Game of Thrones fan has caused quite the uproar -- Redditor SidIncognito was listening to the DVD commentary for a scene in episode 10 when he heard show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss explain one of the heads on a spike:

The last head on the left is George Bush. George Bush's head appears in a couple of beheading scenes. It's not a choice, it's not a political statement. We just had to use whatever head we had around.

Once word got out Wednesday on Reddit, HBO immediately apologized:

We were deeply dismayed to see this and find it unacceptable, disrespectful and in very bad taste. We made this clear to the executive producers of the series who apologized immediately for this inadvertent careless mistake. We are sorry this happened and will have it removed from any future DVD production.

Benioff and Weiss chimed in with an explainer:

What happened was this: we use a lot of prosthetic body parts on the show: heads, arms, etc. We can't afford to have these all made from scratch, especially in scenes where we need a lot of them, so we rent them in bulk. After the scene was already shot, someone pointed out that one of the heads looked like George W. Bush. In the DVD commentary, we mentioned this, though we should not have. We meant no disrespect to the former President and apologize if anything we said or did suggested otherwise.
