Shame: is there a better sales tool?

If you’re not sure people will buy your cellphone, car, or piece of fruit, why not convince them that they’re bad if they don’t? Make them feel embarrassed or stupid. It just works. Shame sells.

That’s what Sodastream, the makers of a sparkling water machine, is doing, and they’re using your favorite show, Game of Thrones, to shame you.

Recreating Cersei Lannister’s walk of shame through King’s Landing, Sodastream enlists the help of Game of Thrones’ Thor Bjornsson (the Mountain) and Hannah Waddingham, who steps back into the role of Septa Unella, bell and all and shames a consumer for buying bottled seltzer at the store, like a real jerk.

Here’s a rundown of this perfectly normal, not crazy at all advertisement:

Like in Game of Thrones, Septa parades a person through the streets shouting “Shame” and ringing her bell. Only instead of shaming this consumer for political espionage and crimes against god, he’s shamed for buying bottled seltzer and crimes against “Mother Earth.” Septa chases the consumer back to the GoT set, where he meets the Mountain, who Mountain-splains the effects of plastic bottles on and the bounties of the environment, like peanuts! Then, back in his trailer, the Mountain sees the actress Hannah Waddingham taking off her Septa costume and is taken by her beauty. All in all, great commercial for a seltzermaker thingy.

Anyway, we should all be very ashamed of ourselves for even considering buying bottled seltzer over a Sodastream because peanuts. 

Based on their YouTube page, it looks like this is just the beingging of a whole sorted love affair between Septa and the Mountain, so get ready to feel weird for a while.

Enjoy this insane commercial!

Go Ahead Tours' customer relation team nailed Halloween this year with this amazing photoshoot.

"We vote on a theme, then cast who will play which character.

"Most of us spend those two months gathering pieces of our costumes and putting it together. This year, a group of us spent the whole week before Halloween cutting and spray-painting pieces of cardboard to create our Iron Throne."

This neat little video comes with a whole website where you can vote on your favorite Game of Thrones character to become the new party leader. 


via thegotparty

Each candidate has their own information page and platform.  There's plenty of GOT merch on the site so fans of the show will no doubt parse these bits of information to come up with theories on future plot developments but it's probably best not to take them too seriously.  Part of Petyr Baelish's platform is "Innovations in Transportation".

Was that the best episode of Game of Thrones ever? A lot of fans seem to think so. And those same fans had a lot of other thoughts, too. WARNING: SPOILERS!

Possible spoilers ahead? 

The people who created this used a "machine learning algorithm" to figure out who is most likely to die next. They go into a much deeper explanation about their initial data gathering from the books and how they use those factors to predict who's next on the website.

They've also got a ranking system to show you who you can expect to die, although these seem to be based on what the books have revealed so far so we may find out if these predictions come true when season six begins.

Peter Dinklage (AKA Tyrion from Game of Thrones) hosted SNL over the weekend. "Space Pants" was pretty good, but his best skit had to be this spoof of Naked & Afraid with Leslie Jones.

You may have heard that the Beatles' former manager, George Martin, died recently. A lot of people saw that and thought that George R.R. Martin had died.

Even a news outlet got confused.

But the record has been set straight and we all know now that George R. R. Martin, the author of the Game of Thrones TV show and novel series, is totally still alive. 

Except this guy...

He's... probably still a little confused.
