Please Enjoy The Hunger Game Of Thrones, In Which Katniss Really Wants To Kill Jon Snow

Mockingjay Part 2 Katniss

In news that'll make you go, “Aww man, I wish I'd thought of that first,” there is now a very funny mashup of The Hunger Games and Game of Thrones called The Hunger Game of Thrones. But it doesn't stop there. You know how The Hunger Games has a character called President Snow, and Katniss spends much of the trailer for Mockingjay Part 2 talking about how she has to take down Snow and kill Snow and generally how awful Snow is? Well, you might recall that there was (is?) a character on Game of Thrones called Jon Snow. Oh yes, you know what's coming. Besides winter.

Obviously, in this version of events, Jon Snow must die. In fact, that's even the video's subtitle. Because according to Katniss, “nothing good is safe while Snow is alive.” Katniss will do whatever it takes to take Snow down, even, apparently, shoot his girlfriend Ygritte with an arrow. Damn, Everdeen, that's cold. Colder than snow. Even colder than Snow, in fact. What did sad, brooding, puppy-faced Jon Snow ever do to you? He's had a hard life, you know. I learned about it that time he had dinner with Seth Meyers. I mean, I know he can be kind of boring, but that's hardly a reason to kill him.

The video was made by YouTuber David Elmaleh, who really hit the mashup jackpot by being able to combine not only the characters but also the titles. Maybe now there can be a reverse version where Ned Stark talks about his bastard son, President Coriolanus Snow, and everyone gets confused because how can Ned Stark have a son who's older than him? Eh? Eh? Or, you know, we can ignore my idea and just enjoy this much better version of the joke. That's fine too.
