The cast of Game of Thrones is so vast and talented that they often find themselves in other projects. However, it sometimes so happens that they are approached to star in advertisement campaigns, where they have to carry their Game of Thrones character. The same thing happened to James Cosmo, who played the Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch at Castle Black, Jeor Mormont, back in the earlier days of the series. He starred in an ad campaign by Bank of Scotland, as his Game of Thrones, and gave financial advice! Read on!
The original ad campaign dates back to 2015, which was about two years after Jeor Mormont was killed off of Game of Thrones. So it seems like he took the responsibility to make all of us money-safe, from the beyond. The Bank of Scotland YouTube channel originally uploaded two videos starring Cosmo. Check them out, below :
Ah well! Maybe financial security is as important as security from the White Walkers!
Bank of Scotland probably wanted to reel in customers by giving them a familiar feeling, but maybe there are friendlier shows to put to that use. However, as fans of the show, we know we would definitely like to deal with Bank of Scotland!
The channel has recently uploaded fifteen more short videos starring Cosmo, following the same theme. Cosmo channels his Jeor to tell people to be financially responsible. Check out all the fifteen clips in the playlist, below :
What do you think about these advertisements? Would you rather take financial advice from some other Game of Thrones character? We, for once, would love to have Lord Varys tell us to take good decisions about our money, but we feel like Jeor Mormont didn’t do a bad job doing it, at all! What are your thoughts?
