I may or may not be counting the days until the third season of Game of Thrones premieres (20 more days) and I may or may not have started to re-watch all the episodes with the books at hand. So yeah, I’m totally going to be excited for anything GoT related, like this new YouTube series that puts Westeros back into high school.
So far, everything seems so spot on:
- Starks as hipsters
- Baratheons as total assholes
- Greyjoys as the speedo-clad swim team
- and Daenerys Targaryen as the new girl
The power politics also play out every well in the new high school setting as the houses (or cliques) vie for prom king and queen (“Prom is coming…). Sounds like a hilarious parody to me!
Don’t forget to keep an eye out for A Very Potter Musical‘s Joey Richter (a.k.a. the other Ron Weasley) as speedo-wearing Greyjoy! Yes. Weasley is our king!
