I think I just broke something inside of me laughing so hard.

Ah, if only the music wasn't Call Me Maybe. When the radio is drilling a song into my head like there's only a half-dozen in existence, I can't help but pay attention to all the cuts

I didn't really find this that funny, since they kind of *are* a romantic comedy relief-type pairing in the book.

I was looking forward to this, but it wasn't very well executed. Sloppy sound edits, and I thought they'd at least mix together lines of dialogue in clever ways.

I think I spent more time on this comment then they did on that video.

Meh, very poor execution.

Drumheilz, spoilers for the uninitiated, please.

Thanks Taz and King Bee!, Enthusiasm + rum can be poor companions. On Preview, I am sorry littlesq.

Rom-com... Or Bronn-com?

Having recently finished A Feast For Crows, I must say, execution aside, I would watch the hell out of this movie. Of course, I also spent actual time noting down a crackpot theory in which Jamie's journey (at least his Storm of Swords journey) very neatly parallels Spike's from Buffy, so honestly, there's little hope for me when it comes to this pairing.

Jamie Lannister is going to fight a demon, get a soul and end up palling around with um... a character north of the wall? (Is that spoiler friendly enough?)

Could happen.

Brilliant idea and I did laugh a few times but as said above, the execution isn't great. He did nail the overlay of actors names as they do in trailers though.

I haven't read Storm of Swords or the fourth book in a while, but the portions of the Jaime and Brienne story I remember are not funny.
