HBO insisted that “The Bud Knight had to die” during the Super Bowl commercial

Super Bowl happened this Sunday and hopes were high for something new from Game of Thrones Season 8 – this isn’t only me saying but the entire internet. The fans – including me have totally lost it since Game of Thrones released an extended version of the Super Bowl teaser featuring Drogon and the Mountain.  Let’s discuss this in detail.

The ad reminds you of the jousting that took place to welcome Ned Stark in the capital, back in Season 1 or the Hand’s Tourney as the Westerosis called it. During this jousting, however, the Mountain defeats the defender of the Bud Light “Dilly Dilly” kingdom.

“The ad reunited more than 25 people from the Game of Thrones crew and was directed by David Nutter, who helms multiple episodes in the show’s final season and directed several previous episodes of the series. Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were also involved.”

Later, HBO Marketing Chief Chris Spadaccini revealed that they demanded that the Bud Knight died during the commercial. Spadaccini said, “The Bud Knight had to die.”

Bud Light also shared a tribute on Twitter, with the hashtag #RememberBudKnight.

Game of Thrones – promoted via Budweiser’s Super Bowl 2019 ad! Some fans have totally lost it as they believe something’s totally brewing up inside – the official trailer, a poster, or footage like the last season. While this might be entirely mere speculation of the fans yet Game of Thrones in collaboration with Budweiser has been able to bring in the attention of the fans that ‘Winter is Coming’!

Watch the full video here:

While we wait for the final season – which will be airing on our television sets in less than three months – we also are totally up for the official trailer. What about you? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

A little boy named Danny Sheehan from Marshfield came to Momoa’s notice after a video of him went viral. Danny is battling cancer who is a big fan of the superhero Aquaman. The video showed him yell in excitement after being gifted an action figure of Aquaman. Jason surprised the young fan with a video call.

The clip was also shared by Momoa along with his adorable chat with the kid. Danny told Momoa that he loved dolphins but that he has never seen one. “That needed to be rectified,” replied Momoa.

Jason said, “I’ve been riding on dolphins and it’s super fun, we should try that sometime.” The actor burst into laughter when the kid showed him the Aquaman action figure. He thanked the people for bringing the little boy’s story to his notice. He also tagged Warner Bros. Pictures to get the boy the Aquaman’s Trident.
