Toasty TV Creates ‘Games of Thrones’ & ‘House of Cards’ Mash-Up Video

What happens when you cross the Game of Thrones HBO series with the House of Cards Netflix series?

Toasty TV, a YouTube channel curated by Quiznos, has created a mash-up parody called “House of Thrones.” The hilarious video embedded above features the wicked politician Frank Underwood wrecking havoc all over the seven kingdoms of Westeros.

According to Mashable, “the video is remarkably subtle for an advertisement, using just a sly hint of product placement towards the end. Game of Thrones and House of Cards fans alike can otherwise sit back and enjoy tons of nerdy references, clever puns and a spot-on Kevin Spacey impression.” What do you think? (via Refinery29)
