Here are the best reactions to the Game of Thrones – Budweiser Super Bowl crossover



Game of Thrones is coming out on April 14 – which is officially around 70 days or lesser away. While we were waiting until today for some big announcement, Game of Thrones enhanced the hype! It was with an advertisement released by Game of Thrones for the Budweiser Super Bowl happening this Sunday. While some hopeful fans like me still believe we are getting a trailer soon, others think this has just been done on purpose to build up the hype!

Well, if you’re a true Game of Thrones fan – you would hope for some major announcement like a trailer or footage or the official poster on Sunday. Yet, much-hype was built only upon receiving a notification on your mobiles. The advertisement featured the classic Budweiser “Dilly Dilly” Kingdom and audience waiting for a jousting competition.

Unluckily for the Bud Knight who had to duel with the Mountain – got his head crushed after being defeated. Next, we saw Drogon flying above and soon coming down to set the place ablaze, announcing – Game of Thrones releases on April 14 and that ‘Winter is here! Here are some of the reactions we saw on Twitter.

Starting with the creator the Game of Thrones universe – George RR Martin himself, who tweeted:

The SuperBowl sucked, but our commercial was awesome!

… Now that we’ve taken care of the Bud Knight, we’re sending our dragons after Colonel Sanders and the Energizer Bunny.

Some other mixed reactions included:

That Bud Light ad turning into a Game of Thrones ad means that all of the latter’s Emmy Awards have been stripped, by ruling of the Television Critics Association.

Yet, some fans are still hopeful that we’re getting something from Game of Thrones this Sunday. Some reactions were:

So I (barely) watched the entire super bowl for no real game of thrones trailer.

Yet, some funny and sarcastic reactions came in like these:

Game of Thrones writers are such savages, now they’re killing people who aren’t even on the show.

RIP, Bud Light Knight.

hbo: a beer commercial with bad animated fire and mocking oberyn’s death

@GameOfThrones so is the Mountain killing the Bud Knight canon? Where does it fit into the timeline? Were house Lannister and house Targaryen momentarily allied soley to murder a Beer man? Pls respond this changes everything about my understanding of the show

— Z (@easZdoesit) February 4, 2019

Oh man!!! Can’t wait to make a 10 minute video how it was hinting Cersei and Daenerys team up!!
