HBO has quietly updated the most recent episode of Game of Thrones to digitally remove a coffee cup that accidentally made its way into a scene, setting the internet on fire with a seemingly endless stream of memes in the process.
The cup which HBO confirmed was, in fact, a mistake and not a more sinister attempt at some kind of product placement was removed from the shot on HBO Go (and, presumably, other streaming platforms as well) sometime overnight, with little fanfare from the TV company.
Its not the first time HBO has edited out gaffes like this: last year, a similar incident occurred in Westworld when two cameramen somehow made their way into a shot, only to be later edited out in an updated version of the episode.

Now you don't.
Seeing is believing. So is not seeing.
Just edit out Cersei and replace her with Dany and thus we have a new queen of the throne through the miracle of digital technology and avoid the sacking of King’s Landing and the possible death of the last dragon.
Can they undo everything since the end of Season 4?
Just edit out Cersei and replace her with Dany
They could have added a scene where Danaerys throws it in Jon Snow’s face and said: This is what I think of the North - as well your overpriced, burned-tasting Dornish Bean Drip!!”
No, just from the remaining 3 episodes.
There’s going to be another dragon. Its on the blade in the intro, so it shouldn’t be a big secret. It should be really big and it might be made of stone, so get ready.
different definition of ‘quietly’? I do not watch , but I was aware.
(who writes this stuff?)
SNL’s cold opening had a Family Feud parody with one ‘family’ from GOT. It was great.
Here it is on youtube
Reminds me of the movie THE PROFESSIONALS (1966)in which Claudia Cardinale peels off her top for Burt Lancaster. it was dark, but you could see she was ALL WOMAN!
Several months later I saw that movie again, and the scene looked like someone had sprayed a dark fog over the lower right corner of the screen. I’ve seen it several times and the dark fog is still there.
I noticed the cup Sunday night, and just thought “Oh, they have coffee in that universe too.”
They do the same gross injustice to ‘safe’ versions
of Slapshot. One where the coach is in bed with Old Grote’s (?) wife and a scene of a couple in their car. Very irritating.
How about we EDIT OUT Schumer,Pelosi, Nadler, Wray, Comey Obama, Clinton and the rest of that garbage?
Have to admit, that video was funny.
...he turned away from the window and back to his desk, to brush his hand across the gleaming metal top of it to grab the cup of steaming coffee from Starbucks sitting there. No faintest scratch marred the eternalloy surface, although the desk had been there for more than thirty thousand years. It was permanent and never-changing, like the robot-operated fleet that guarded Tharnar, like the white and massive Executive Building that held the special unroasted coffee beans, like the way of life on Tharnar, with the Starbucks chain now approaching 500,000 stores across the steamy, woke planet.
The Terrans would have to die, yes, they all had to die, lest the peace and the way of life on Tharnar be destroyed. They were of a young race; a race so young that his desk had already been in place for fifteen thousand years when they began emerging from their caves. They were a dangerously immature race; their coffee was weak and it had been only three hundred years since their last war with themselves. Three hundred yearsthree normal Tharnarian lifetimes. And the Tharnarians had not known war, or weak coffee, for six hundred lifetimes.
A race so young could not possess a civilized culture, not even a small chain of Starbucks-like knockoffs. Not even a Dunkin Donuts. The Terrans werehe searched for a suitable descriptionbarbarians in spaceships. They lacked the refinement and wisdom of the Tharnarians; being mostly uncaffeinated, they were a dangerous and unpredictable race. It could be seen in their history; could be seen in the way the two Terrans had reacted to their capture.
He pressed one of the many buttons along the edge of his desk and a three-dimensional projection appeared of a grande latte; the scene that had taken place one hundred and eighty days before when the barbaric Terrans were first brought to Tharnar.
The ship of the Terrans stood bright silver in the sunlight, slim and graceful against the bulk of the Executive Building behind it. The Terrans descended the boarding ramp, the left wrist of the man chained to the right wrist of the girl. Each of them carrying a styrofoam cup of their pitifully lukewarm weak coffee of their native planet in their free hands. These primitive Terrans never tasted Starbucks coffee and never would. Two armed robots walked behind them, their faces metallically impassive, and four armed Tharnarian guards waited at the bottom of the ramp to help take the Terrans to their place of imprisonment..."
The Avengers vs GOT family feud Spoof.
Winter is coming. So is a vente decaf.
GoT is fiction, unfortunately your suggestion is changing reality and thus fantasy. ;)
