HBO Edits Out Coffee Cup On Latest Episode of ‘Game of Thrones’
As the only one on the show who doesn't watch "Game of Thrones" I gave in last week and subscribed to HBO on my Hulu account. It was the best decision ever! So, I decided to give "Game of Thrones" a look. Westeros really has everything you need. It has dragons, dire wolves, kings, queens, zombies and a Starbucks? On Sunday night, as eagle-eyed viewers pointed out, a coffee cup appeared on a table in Winterfell.
HBO fully admits there was a problem on Sunday night's episode, but took it with humor. Here's what HBO had to say about that blunder:
"In response to inquiries from those who saw a craft services coffee cup in Sunday night's episode of 'Game of Thrones': The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea"
So, it's not a Starbucks cup, even though Starbucks gained an estimated $2.3 billion in free advertising in the last few days. The blunder was a craft services coffee cup, still, that is ALL Westeros needs for me to want to visit. Unfortunately, if you wanted to go back and check out the scene for yourself, HBO has already edited out the cup, kind of. I went back to watch the ENTIRE episode and IT WAS STILL THERE! I'm assuming that the edit will be on reruns, On Demand services and for when the season comes out on DVD and Blu Ray. As for Hulu and if you recorded the episode, the coffee cup is sure to still be there.
"Game of Thrones" airs on Sundays on HBO and is in the final season with two episodes left.
