If you’ve been watching the Olympics in American these past few weeks on television, then you’ve probably sat through them: political commercials for the 2016 candidates for President of the United States. (Well, you’ve at least sat through commercials for one candidate, the other one seems to believe the race doesn’t start until after Labor Day.)
But even if you’re not in America, you’ve probably been subjected to these ads. Running them on line, especially in this day and age when the streaming ratings for the Olympics beat prime time regularly, is where it’s at. But there the race for 2016 it’s so one sided. Not only are there endless ads for the American candidates, there’s ads for the Westerosi ones now too.
Released on Friday, these political spots for #GoT2016 have been everywhere for the last 48 hours, as the candidates make their pitches to a restless audience at home that would like the White Walkers to just knock the wall down already and get on with the war against humanity instead of making us wait 11 months like this. Let’s check them out.
