“Game Of Chairs” features several Sesame Street Muppets competing to become king or queen of Jesteros. When Grover Bluejoy comes in to explain the rules, he keeps getting them wrong, leading the puppet version of Melisandre to say, “The monster is blue and full of errors.”
Eventually, a Nedd Stark Muppet reveals that “Game Of Chairs” is actually just musical chairs. Muppet versions of Robb Stark, Cersei Lannister, Joffrey Baratheon, and Daenerys Targaryen each compete to win the ultimate Sesame Street throne.
While this is clearly a kid-friendly version of Game Of Thrones, there are some darker references added for true GoT fans. At one point, the Muppet dressed like Robb Stark asks his fellow competitors, “Can we hurry this up? I have a wedding to get to.” And when the Joffrey Muppet loses “Game Of Chairs,” Grover tells him, “It looks like you choked.”Joffrey then throws in a mini-tantrum for good measure.
So who ultimately wins this “Game Of Chairs”? At the end of Sesame Street’s Game Of Thrones parody, Grover takes his spot on the throne. He is then crowned by Tyrion Lannister and orders him to, “bring a sweater, I think winter is coming!” And when Ned storms away in disgust, Grover tells him, “Do not lose your head over this, Neddy baby!”
Is this a sign Theon Greyjoy will ultimately take over Westeros on GoT? You can find out what will really happen on Game Of Thrones Season 5 starting Sunday, April 12 at 9 p.m. EST.
