As Game of Thrones begins to dive into the political turmoil from the latest episode, The Laws of Gods and Men, YouTuber 'Nicksplosion FX' pays tribute to the show with a recreation of the iconic Game of Thrones opening credits.

'Nicksplosion FX' merged the fantastical world of Game of Thrones with the popular video game Super Mario to create this 8-bit version of the infamous map sequence shown in the TV show's opening credits. The YouTube clip begins with the iconic Game of Thrones theme song redone to the tune of the Super Mario game. 'Nicksplosion FX' recreated the aerial shot of the world map by using geeky 8-bit graphics and replacing many famous Game of Thrones locations with Super Mario ones, such as Yoshi's Island.
