If Joffrey Baratheon Were the Hero of Game of Thrones

Last year, early in Game of Thrones’ fourth season, viewers watched King Joffrey Baratheon die at his own wedding. The moment was highly satisfying: At that point, Joffrey had smirked and sneered his way into being possibly the most hated character on television. But in their latest video, BloodBlitz Comedy imagines a different world—a world where Joffrey was a mistreated prince who was kind and chivalrous; who led the defense of King’s Landing; and who was cruelly manipulated by one Margaery Tyrell and then poisoned in a bloody coup.

In other words, it’s a world where Joffrey Baratheon was the nicest person on Game of Thrones. You may feel a flicker of sympathy as you watch this lie unfold before you, but remember: Joffrey really, really sucked.
