The 'Game of Social Thrones' is an awesome spoof from Hootsuite, modeled after the epic opening of the popular TV show, acting as a clever advertisement for its services, which are designed to "unite your social kingdoms." Since mastering social media itself can be a game, there couldn't be a more brilliant and relevant reference to make, especially since the season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones has set the Internet abuzz after the first episode and the anticipation of the episodes to follow.

Alike the Game of Thrones opening, towers, amphitheatres and other structures representing social sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pop out of a flat map and come to life in 3D. Stats for Social Media Kingdom Spoofs Trending: This Year & Buzzing
