George R.R. Martin Receives Typewriter at The Emmys

Grammy Award winner Weird Al Yankovic requested that author George R.R. Martin “type as fast as you can.” Yankovic reasons that “we need more script.”

The video embedded above features Yankovic performing a medley of TV theme music at the 66th annual Emmy Awards. As he was singing the Game of Thrones portion, comedian Andy Samberg (donning a Joffrey Baratheon costume) handed Martin a typewriter.

Many concerns have been voiced that the story line of the Game of Thrones TV show will catch up too quickly to Martin’s novels. Earlier this year, Martin had decided not to pen a script for the HBO series’ fifth season. It seems that Yankovic didn’t get the memo that Martin’s reason for doing this is to focus on finishing The Winds of Winter.
