'Game Of Thrones', Super Mario Bros style

One fan decided to make a mash-up video of sorts, featuring HBO’s popular TV series and the much-loved videogame.

Actor/director and YouTube user NicksplosionFX must have had a lot of time on his hands when he created this cool video featuring HBO’s wildly popular Game Of Thrones series ... if it were set in the world of Super Mario Bros.

The video basically shows a map of where Mario the plumber needs to go in order to save the princess, who is (we assume) sitting pretty in the enemy’s castle. The pixelated map is presented in the style of the Game Of Thrones’ opening credits and uses the TV show’s theme song – which has been transformed into a super cool 8-bit version.

Okay, so perhaps the track is only “super cool” if it is accompanied by the video so ... just watch it. You can also watch a comparison video (below) that shows the original Game Of Thrones opening credits and NicksplosionFX’s “remake”.
