Peter Dinklage Sums Game of Thrones Up in 45 Seconds, Is Perfect
Game of Thrones is one of the most expansive and complicated television shows ever produced, so far having aired around 38 hours of content with hundreds of actors and shot across several continents. Despite this, actor Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister on the show, is able to accurately sum up the show in 45 seconds. Say what?
During an interview with MTV, Peter is forced to catch up his interviewer on everything that’s ever happened on GoT in under a minute, and he does a pretty solid job. “Stabby stabby stabby, sexy sexy sexy, stabby stabby stabby,” Peter begins. “Beautiful, beautiful language and beautiful scenes of poetry and musing on the world as we know it in King’s Landing and a... couple jokes. And more stabby stabby.” Peter then closes up his summary by making death noises and saying, “And brother/sister,” while simulating intercourse with his hands.
The video of Dinklage’s performance can be viewed below, and it’s quite impressive. He hits all the major points of the show (violence, nudity, incest, great writing). We just have one qualm: No mention of dragons? Peter is a little King’s Landing biased, we suppose, so we can’t really fault him for that.
