After a Redditor noticed that George W. Bush’s head makes a cameo appearance during a beheading scene in season 1 of Games of Thrones, heads exploded off of necks and some people freaked out so hard that the producers and HBO had to be like, “Sorry, gurl.” David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, GoT’s creators, say they weren’t trying to make some anti-Bush political statement and they just happened to buy a prosthetic Dubya head from the company they buy fake heads and limbs from. I’m going to tell GoT’s creators the same thing I told my dog after he squatted a caca out right in front of a hot piece I was checking out on the street: “Bitch, you know you did that on purpose.” Here’s their apology via Deadline:
We use a lot of prosthetic body parts on the show: heads, arms, etc. We can’t afford to have these all made from scratch, especially in scenes where we need a lot of them, so we rent them in bulk. After the scene was already shot, someone pointed out that one of the heads looked like George W. Bush.
In the DVD commentary, we mentioned this, though we should not have. We meant no disrespect to the former President and apologize if anything we said or did suggested otherwise.
HBO also tried to soothe the throbbing b-holes of Dubya lovers by saying that they’re going to remove Dubya’s head from all future productions of the DVD. If they did this shit as a stunt, then it worked. Because everyone’s going to be running to buy the DUBYA’S HEAD ON A STAKE EDITION.
And I’m still waiting for the producers to apologize for putting Brit Brit’s old, ratty caca weave on that stake too.
