The theme song for "Game of Thrones" is just so darn catchy. It's inspired a wealth of creative cover versions from ato a at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. There's a little bit of Las Vegas flair entering the fray as the Blue Man Group offers up its own take on the music in celebration of the April 12.
The Blue Man Group's version of the theme involves three blue-clad members, tons of tubular instruments, paddles, a driving rhythm and splashing liquid flying about. The name "Hodor" flashes down in a bright digital display.
The blue-faced performance group is known for its nontraditional instruments. It's also known for not talking, so it's no wonder the group feels a kinship with Hodor, the "Thrones" character who speaks only a single word ("Hodor").
The YouTube description for the theme song video reads, "Blue Man Group's vow of silence to remain in place until Hodor's status in season 5 is confirmed." That's a reference to the news that.
Even if Hodor magically makes a cameo appearance, don't expect that to prompt the Blue Man Group into suddenly becoming erudite conversationalists during their shows. Like with Hodor, it's more about actions than words.
