You Know You Love It: ‘Game of Thrones’ as a Romantic Comedy


It’s the perfect set-up: Brienne is the ugly duckling with some serious emotional walls and a crush on her gay best friend, Jaime is the most handsome guy in school — er, Westeros — who’s trapped in an unhealthy relationship. They both love fighting, and slowly they realize that they might just love… each other. At least, that’s the way that YouTube user twinvortex sees it, and we can’t say we hate the idea — at the very least, we laughed out loud when we watched this trailer for a rom-com version Game of Thrones. Plus, the trailer features everyone’s favorite song of the teeny-bopping summer, “Call Me Maybe.” Not that any of these characters have phones, but somehow “Send Me a Raven Maybe” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
