Web Gems is intended to give you an entertaining, and hopfeully humorous, look at your favorite HBO shows and the actors that make them great. After all, these people aren’t just the characters they play; they are real people, with real interests. They do stupid and rather embarrassing things just like everyone else. But also show us just how awesome they really are. My plan is to bring you a collection of videos, pictures, tweets, and fan creations that I have found while surfing this thing we call the internet. Various sources have been used, multiple avenues explored, and everything is HBO related.
Any thoughts about this post can be shared in the comments below. Any ideas, pics, tweets, or videos you want added can be sent to Charlie@HBOWatch.com.
Game of Thrones may be over, but the party never stops here at HBOWatch! Here are a few gems that are a nice homage to the epic journey that was Season Two.
Fan Rendition of the Game of Thrones Opener
I’ve seen a lot a fan-inspired cover versions of the opening sequence. However, this one may be my favorite so far. The piano playing is actually quite beautiful.
Or, maybe a Metal versions is your thing. This guy can obviously shred but holds back a bit in this video. I love his confident head nod at the end. He knows he’s good! Rock on, bro!
Game of Thrones Inspired Maroon 5 Parody: Payphone
The YouTube channel BarelyPolitical uploaded this “Weird Al-style” parody of the Maroon 5 song “Payphone’. I laughed several times.
Ser Ilyn is a Rockstar in the UK
All I know is that I want his name taken off of Arya’s list after seeing this video.
