[Awesome] Google creates Game of Thrones themed commercial

March 23, 2013

Google Play_ Retribution

Well, this was quite a find. Just in time for the Season 3 premiere of the acclaimed series Game of Thrones, Google has released a new commercial titled “Retribution”, complete with an aura of┬ávengeance in the air.

Throughout the ad, we see Google going through the Play Store and buying a bunch of┬ámedieval, dragon, power and punishment themed content on a Nexus 10. They move through songs, books, games and movies, all while Carmina Burana’s O Fortuna is doing its part to build up the tension in the background. The ad culminates when showing us the cover of the Game of Thrones on the Nexus 7 and other content on the Nexus 4 and a Chromebook. In the end, the Play user is revealed as┬áDaenerys Targaryen, mother of dragons and rightful ruler of the Seven Kingdoms.

It’s great to see Google take advantage of what has now truly become a global phenomenon. I have no doubt this will manage to extract at least couple of chuckles from GoT fans. I have just one quarrel with the ending; I really do not believe that the Khaleesi has time to kill on her Nexus. Doesn’t she have an army to build and a kingdom to win?
