‘Game of Thrones’ Left a Starbucks Cup In-Shot & Twitter Can’t Handle It
It turns out that defeating zombies and then having to face the prospect of battling Cersei Lannister is actually pretty exhausting, and Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, and co need to stay as caffeinated as the rest of us. At least, that’s the impression we’re getting after a takeaway coffee cup was spotted during yesterday’s episode of Game of Thrones.
Placed on the table beside candles and the usual metal wine-filled goblet sat a distinctly modern-looking takeaway cup with a plastic rim. Assumedly an oversight at HBO HQ — unless plastic was introduced to Westeros when we weren’t looking — the blooper has naturally sparked a number of memes on Twitter.
From those demanding a backstory to the cup to those pondering how, given the length of time it took to execute season eight, it was missed in the first place, find the best reactions to Starbucks GoT Gate below.

The fact that there was a Starbucks cup in tonight’s Game of Thrones that no producers or editors noticed throughout multiple cuts merely 1 week after the DP yelled that the show’s not too dark to see is truly *chef’s kiss*
