    Even if you're not a GoT fan, you should watch this just for the comedy, and then watch the outtakes for what the creator didn't think was good enough to make it in.

    Many marketers, brand owners, companies wish they could get HALF of the hits this video alone got (over 3 million in less than 3 days and counting)...you need a good sense of humor, ability to write, and excellent timing to come up with something like this...and a brand that doesn't mind being thought of as silly or irreverant.
