The opening title sequence from Game of Thrones has been recreated using nothing but Oreo cookies. The sequence was crafted to promote the new limited edition Game of Thrones-inspired Oreo cookies releasing along with the show's final season.
Following its debut in 2011, Game of Thrones has become a staple HBO series alongside other classic shows like The Sopranos, The Wire, and Deadwood. Based on George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series, Game of Thrones hasn't just proven itself as a successful series, but fully ingrained in pop culture. With board games, collectibles, and even a prequel spinoff series in the works, the series has never been more popular - especially considering it's about to release its eighth and final season. So, to join the fun, Oreo cookies are now officially teaming up with Game of Thrones, releasing four cookie designs inspired by the show. Only, Oreo didn't waste the opportunity when unveiling their new (temporary) look.
Oreo released a video recreating Game of Thrones' opening title sequence on Twitter to promote their new limited edition cookies. And, to stay on brand, the sequence only uses Oreo cookies. A stop-motion animation effect recreates Westeros with the cookies from the ground up until finally ending with the new limited edition cookies - the designs of which include House Stark, House Targaryen, House Lannister, and the Night King. Check out the video below:
Oreo is hardly the only brand celebrating Game of Thrones' final season. Johnnie Walker teamed up with HBO to release a special edition White Walker-inspired scotch whiskey - aptly named "White Walker." But HBO went one step further, releasing an entire set of single malt scotch whiskies. The sigils of eight different houses from the show decorate eight different types of whiskey with varying price tags. That said, exciting though it may be for fans to get their hands on Game of Thrones-inspired snacks and drinks, mixing the two probably isn't the best (or most appetizing) idea.
Though there have been plenty of shows throughout history that have garnered significant attention from the masses, Game of Thrones is in a league of its own. Not just a TV series, but a cultural phenomenon, Game of Thrones earned its time in the spotlight. Sadly, all good things must end, and HBO's epic series is about to take its final bow. Thankfully, though, if there was one way to soften the blow, it's drowning one's sorrow in a glass of cold milk and a stack of Oreo cookies.
Game of Thrones' eighth season premieres on April 14, 2019 on HBO.
