The Ultimate Game of Thrones*
We’re used to the regular fanfare that comes every two years with the Olympic games, but this year BBC Sport put out a trailer for the 2014 Games that is a bit unorthodox and, in my opinion, totally badass. In something that plays like a movie trailer or ultra-luxe car ad, the spot promotes man vs. nature as Olympians scale a menacingly intimidating mountain looking to ‘have their day’.
Can’t wait for the Games to begin.
*Oh, right. The video voiceover is none other than Charles Dance, Tywin Lannister in HBO’s Game of Thrones.
