Last night was Red Nose Day, a star-studded program to help raise money for various charitable organization. There were plenty of good sketches and bits, but one that deserves special attention is Game of Thrones: The Musical.
The sketch is done in the style of a behind-the-scenes documentary complete with narration from Liam Neeson. I’m not sure if the joke is that Coldplay is awful and any musical they did would be bad, or if a musical based on Game of Thrones would be bad. I think it’s the latter, but it’s really tough to tell. But overall, the sketch does a good job of blending the mockumentary style with references to the show.
