"Game of Thrones" fans could never forget the time when one of the most successful TV shows of today spent some of its hard-earned money and hype on a Facebook Live video showing a piece of ice slowly melting? And then, it so happened that a lot of people tuned in to literally watch the melting.
The entire videos were actually all just to announce the new season's release date, which could have just been handed out in a press release. Instead, people were given a video of a literally melting ice, which was, as many have agreed upon, pretty goofy to say the least.
Coster-Waldau Recalls About The 'Melting Ice' Video
According to A.V. Club, "Game Of Thrones" producers have recently agreed to which series star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau will recount showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss' reactions to HBO's recent Facebook Live event for the show:
Nikolai reminisced the time he spoke with the two, saying that, "I spoke with Dan and David about it and they were like, 'Oh God that's embarrassing,' and everyone was like, 'What's supposed to happen?' and 'What's going to happen??'"
"Then they shouted 'It's melting!' 'It crashed!' 'Oh my Goodness!' everyone was like, just walk away. It's just a date! I was actually thinking if there is going to be some backlash and people would think, 'F-ck you guys for that!'"
Everyone Would Still Watch GoT
However, according to Uproxx, Coster-Waldau, who also gave some good insight into the future that he sees for "The Kings Slayer" Jaime Lannister, then fell back on his old Lannister confidence once again, noting that the suspense and shocking surprise actually happens every time in the show kills off a major character. Then he portrayed what most fans would say afterward, saying that they would get upset and never watch the show again, and would eventually just come back and keep watching.
Coster-Waldau also said that more and more revelations are coming when "Game of Thrones" returns for its seventh season on July 16, 2017. Stay tuned for more updates.
