40-Foot Dragon Skull 'Washes Ashore' To Promote Some Company's Streaming Of Game Of Thrones Season 3

July 16, 2013


This is the 40-foot dragon skull that 'washed ashore' on Charmouth Beach in Dorset, England, to promote the availability of Game of Thrones season three on the UK-based television streaming service Blinkbox. Any of you use Blinkbox? I don't even have a TV, just an aquarium. SAME SHOW EVERYDAY.

The 40-foot skull is (obviously) a man-made sculpture designed by a team of three, taking over two months to construct. It was created by movies and TV streaming service Blinkbox, to celebrate the arrival of HBO's third season of Game of Thrones on its service on July 15th. "Game of Thrones is easily the most talked-about TV show of the moment," said Ben Ayers of Blinkbox. "We wanted to mark its arrival on Blinkbox with a spectacle every bit as dramatic as this amazing series.

Whatever, I just want it in my apartment whenever they're done with it on the beach. And I want you to have to walk through the mouth when you come in the door. Then you'll be greeted by yours truly in a wizard robe, and I'll say something like, 'Greetings, and welcome to my magic castle.' Then you'll say something like, "Magic castle? This is a studio apartment -- I can see your bed from the door." THEN I'LL KICK YOU OUT FOR BEING A JERK.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots.

    Let's hope that when they get the rights to stream Dexter that they lay out a bunch of dead bodies on the same beach
