    video: coldplay's "game of thrones" musical is everything you deserve

    and perhaps more...

    "George R.R. Martin meets Chris Martin. What could go wrong?" asks Emilia Clarke, a.k.a Daenerys Targaryen.

    Well, a whole lot, apparently, in this Red Nose Day mockmentary showing the massively popular ballad-makers Coldplay creating a (unfortunately) fictional rock opera for the popular fantasy series. It'd be unfair to spoil all your fun here, but highlights of the Liam-Neeson-narrated (!!!) vid include a punchy tribute to some of series' goriest scenes ("Red Wedding, Red Wedding/Lots of stabbing and a little beheading"), a reggae take on the Mother of Dragons ("Targaryen Rastafarian"), and "the first romantic ballad about incest in Coldplay's career." Yes. That

    Best of all, we get appearances by a good percentage of Game of Thrones' massive cast, including many we haven't seen since their characters were killed off. Wall-to-wall amazing.

    Oh, Red Nose day is today, so get watching and get donating.
