Pugs of Westeros

Game Of Thrones: The Pugs Of Westeros [VIDEO]

When it comes to news here on The Inquisitr, we have plenty of articles on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Now whether those articles are breaking news, such as the spoilers by George R.R. Martin, gossip and celebrity stuff, such as the queen visiting the set, or just funny cool stuff like actor and actress selfies, is up in the air. We also are notorious for plenty of pet articles, specifically cats and dogs doing cute or funny things like meeting infants for the first time or sleeping in the weirdest places. However, we have a question to ask you. What would happen if we combined both?

The answer comes to us thanks to BlinkBox, who have uploaded a video titled The Pugs of Westeros to their Youtube Page on June 24 2014. Right now, they are sitting at over 1.5 million views making them one of the current most popular videos on Youtube presently. Honestly, this video may have been made in honor of the fact that the fourth season of the series just recently wrapped up to the praises of fans all around, despite the fact the show is killing characters faster than George R.R. Martin can write books in the series. Just so you know, A Game of Thrones was written back in 1998, and he is only has five books written since. That is a long time for a “trilogy” right?

Nevertheless, BlinkBox included this description about why they did the video in the “About” tab in the following:

“To celebrate the release of the fourth series of Game of Thrones on blinkbox we created this video starring 3 adorable pugs. ‘The Pugs of Westeros’ sees Roxy, Blue and Bono playing doggy versions of the main characters; including Joffrey Baratheon, Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow.”

“The pugs’ owners, Phillip Lauer and his wife Sue, have been dressing their pugs up as characters from movies and TV since they were puppies. They normally only shoot still photography but jumped at the chance of creating a mini-movie based on one of their favorite shows.”

I will admit with what Peta Pixel said about the title of the video. Why they didn’t use “Game of Bones” instead baffles me. That is actually kind of smart. But maybe they didn’t want to be confused with another book, being City of Bones. Who knows right? Nevertheless, enjoy the video.
