The Game of Thrones world is steeped in court intrigue and political maneuvering, but for all that it lacks something we take for granted:
Democracy Political attack ads. The folks over at Mother Jones decided to put their tongues firmly in cheek and show us what attack ads from the land of Westeros would look like. C’mon, Joffrey, we want to see a birth certificate! See them all, after the break.
Though funny, these ads fail to take into account the violence inherent to Westeros politics. What’s the point in a smear campaign when you can just straight-up murder someone? That said, these are fantastic. Extra points for encouraging viewers to “send a raven.”
