'Game of Thrones' creators are super sorry, but not for that

The show's producers apologize on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" for creating a new annoying door behavior.

Warning: Spoilers from the latest episode of "Game of Thrones" are coming.

This may be the only apology "Game of Thrones" fans will ever get from the notoriously bloody and unrepentant show. Producers D.B. Weiss and David Benioff appeared in a video on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Tuesday night to say they were sorry -- but not for what you think.

Weiss and Benioff aren't sorry for killing off a certain main character who's now the world's saddest doorstop.

"We kill off a lot of main characters," said Benioff, while sitting on a couch sprinkled with cash.

"We've killed 739 main characters so far," agreed Weiss.

No, instead they're sorry for introducing a certain kind of embarrassing behavior that's sure to crop up in the future when a "Thrones" fan wants to ask someone to hold a door open for them:" Hodor!" (Hold the door.) Yeah, that.

"We forgot how annoying people can be," said Weiss. "That's our bad."
