If there are three things the Internet loves, they are 1) Game of Thrones, 2) Arrested Development, and 3) mashing up those two things with other things (and sometimes with each other), so I suppose it’s not exactly earth-shattering news that Cracked ran the plot of Game of Thrones through the opening credits of Arrested Development. I mean, of course they did, right?
I don’t know. Maybe it’s because I spend too much time on the Internet and it’s 100 degrees in the shade on the East Coast right now, but this video just doesn’t do it for me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it’s not well done, or that I wouldn’t have exploded with glee if this was the first mashup I’d ever seen. It’s just … man, you can only go to the ol’ mashup well so many times, you know? Eventually that sucker is going to go dry, and then the whole town will die of dehydration. Is that what you want? Dying women and children in the streets using their last parched breaths to fight over pots and pans filled with half an inch of dirty rainwater? It’s a slippery slope. That’s all I’m saying.
But look, don’t let me ruin this video for you if you enjoy it. That’s not what I’m trying to do here. I’m just telling you to think about some things. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got groundwater studies to run.
