Game Of Thrones Season 5 And The Simpsons. The Influence Of The Iron Throne in Springfield.
Everybody knows this truth: ‘You’re a nobody if you do not appear in The Simpsons.’ Thus, Presidents of the United States and other countries, stars of Hollywood and famous scientists, Greenpeace ship and a replica of the Guggenheim in Bilbao by Gehry … All of them have ever been to Springfield, and all of them have known its yellow people. From Homer to Bart, from Marge to Lisa… Don’t forget Mr. Burns!
How about the most famous TV series nowadays? How about Game of Thrones? Of course, the Simpsons couldn’t forget it and the show has referred to the heroes (and villains) of Game of Thrones several times. My favorite is this one on the video: A parody of Game of Thrones opening in Springfield! Don’t you love it? Tell us your opinion now!

Now, you can compare with the original. Don’t you love it? It’s simply the best. The series’s title sequence was created by production studio Elastic for HBO. It’s amazing! No surprise that Angus Wall and his collaborators received the 2011 Emmy Award for Main Title Design for their work. It depicts a three-dimensional map. As the camera swoops across it and focuses on the locations in which the events take place, complicated clockwork mechanisms let buildings and other structures emerge from the map and unfold. The composition of the title sequence changes as the story progresses, as new places are introduced they replace others that no longer feature as prominently or at all.
The composer is Ramin Djawadi. The first season soundtrack was published by Varèse Sarabande in June 2011. Soundtrack albums for the subsequent seasons have also been published, featuring tracks performed by the bands The National, The Hold Steady and Sigur Rós.
What do you prefer? I know, difficult choice!
