Beware, some Game of Thrones season six spoilers may lie ahead.
Tired of Trump vs. Clinton? How about a Game of Thrones character instead? HBO is offering you the chance to vote for your favourite GOT Party candidate.
First things first – who are the GOT Party?
HBO has released a statement explaining exactly what this party stands for:
“For those who feel left out, for those who don’t see their banner on the ballot, for those who don’t like how the game is played … Vote GOT.”
In addition to the statement, there is also this video:
Sadly, the Game of Thrones challengers won’t actually be battling Trump and Clinton. Jon Snow and Danaerys would probably bring swords, anyway, and we know how that would end…
The campaign is actually to direct our attention to the blu-ray release of Game of Thrones season six. Despite this, the person who came up with the idea is definitely onto something.
Throughout August, you’ll be able to place your digital cross next to the name of your Iron Throne hopeful. You’ll be able to choose from the following: Jon Snow with his running mate Lyanna Mormont, Daenerys Targaryen with her running mate Tyrion Lannister, Cersei Lannister with running mate Qyburn, or Petyr Baelish with running mate Sansa Stark.
The vote will offer an interesting insight into fans’ choices for the leader of Westeros. Especially if they go for the Mad Queen, a.k.a Cersei Lannister. Of course, Petyr’s popularity is also a debatable choice.
HBO‘s new programming president, Casey Bloys stated over on EW that there are only two more seasons of Game of Thrones left. With only a handful of characters left now, things are definitely getting exciting.
