Just when you thought Frozen was almost out of your memory and “Let it Go” finally had its last leg, a new maashup has appeared with all new Game of Thrones lyrics sung by Gail Folsom. With season 4 of GoT underway, it only makes sense based on the timeliness of the content. Check out “Let it Go(T)” after the break, but be warned there are massive spoilers throughout the video.
Pretty clever right? We’ve seen many parodies of “Let it Go” in the past, but this one, as late of an entry as it is, is pretty solid. The parody was written by Joanna Robinson of Vanity Fair, Gail Folsom, and Dave Gonzales of Latino-Review.com; edited by David Chen of SlashFilm. Within the tight almost four minute video, this crew was able to fit a decent amount of references in a short amount of time. To be able to fit in all of that content and have it make sense in the show is worth a tip of the hat, a monocle smile, and a golf clap.
The Game of Thrones/Frozen mashup mainly consists of plot threads where we are currently at in the television series with Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson), Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie), and Bran (Isaac-Hempstead Wright) and doesn’t really touch on any of the past events with Robb Stark (Richard Madden), Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairly), and the others. (HOW DO YOU LIKE THAT SEO GOOGLE?)
Many of the secondary characters like Samwell Tarly (John Bradley), Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish (Aidan Gillen), The Hound (Rory McCann), Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen), Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen), Osha (Natalia Tena), Ygritte (Rose Leslie), Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham), Melisandre (Carice van Houten), Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane), Shae (Sibel Kekilli), and Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dorner) were unfortunately left out, but shown at least. Like I said, there’s only so much time allotted in this song, and for what it’s worth they did a pretty great job catching fans up to the current episode.
I am now going to anticipate a follow up with instead of “Do You Want to Build a Snowman” with “Do You Want to Build a Dragon” or instead of “In Summer” they do “In Winter.”
