I may be very late on this one, which is easy to do as the internet tends to present us with something but also make it the most annoying thing ever within hours. I am hoping though, that this video also went over a few other people’s heads.
The video in question, is by the very inventive YouTube channel BadLipReading. The premise of the channel is simple, they get music videos and trailers, mute the dialogue or vocals, and use some “bad lip reading” to insert new words. I first came across this channel with their rendition of Miley Cyrus’ wholesome “Party in the USA” as “Black Umbrella“. Who knew that Miley would eventually make songs in that style?
BadLipReading truly outdid themselves when they turned to fantasy series A Game of Thrones. For their take on the GoT story, they went with the whole underachievers working in an amusement park theme á la Adventureland. So here is the trailer for Medieval Land Fun-Time World, in which Eddie Stark “has one week to whip his lackluster group of employees into shape before the park’s grand opening”. It all sounds a bit too light-hearted for the real book series.
