Jimmy Fallon's Game of Desks Spoofs Game of Thrones: Hilarious, Worth the Watch (Videos)
No Game of Thrones tonight, folks. This parody of the HBO series by Jimmy Fallon (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon) nearly makes up for it with a great laugh. The comic production is called Game of Desks, and the show went all out to mimic the GoT, even the opening is very similar and so funny. Looks like they had a lot of fun making this.
The verbal argument over the iron desk near the beginning (with Fallon playing a character after Ned Stark, The Roots), The Roots as the crows at Castle Black, the scene with Fallon as Daenerys Targaryen, and some surprise guest appearances at the end make the spoof even better.
I missed the skit when it aired late last week because I went to be early that night, something I hardly ever do, but luckily for me, if you snooze, you no longer lose today. You can find almost anything you may have missed.
In other Game of Thrones-related news, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard tells a reporter in the video interview below that she's a fan of the show and is rooting for the Mother of Dragons to win the war and rule the Seven Kingdoms.
