A YouTube user by the name of NicksplosionFX just released a mashup in which he renders the entire "Game of Thrones" intro video in the world of Super Mario. Looking at the Mario version and the original intro side by side, you get a real appreciation for how closely the Mario version matches that of the HBO series. And, a real-life Mario/"Game of Thrones" partnership would make for some watchable entertainment. Let's get HBO and Nintendo in a conference room.

In the meantime, enjoy Nick's work, and just you try to get that 8-bit audio theme song out of your head.
