The Simpsons also love Game of Thrones

Last night’s couch gag was one of the more elaborate ones: a full-blown dedication to the opening for HBO’s Game of Thrones, steampunkesque cogs and all.  Watch quickly before it goes away:

Also available in the fuller version here.

For quick reference, here is the original (and cuz seriously, who doesn’t want watch it again):

Of course the rest of the Simpsons episode kinda went downhill from there – Bart becomes a street artist a la Shepard Fairey to get back at Homer for locking him in a rabbit cage. It was as bland and convoluted as it sounds.  As has been said on the show so many times in so many way, Meh.

    The intro music is so amazing.

    “Might I add — less than 27 days to go to the premiere of season 2. (Should I be starting some sort of countdown…?)”
