When you play the game of thrones, you win, or you edit the footage to make it look like you won.

Proving that it’s possible to give anyone a flattering edit, YouTube user BloodBlitz Comedy reimagined Game of Thrones with King Joffrey as its hero. The story plays out like a Shakespearean tragedy, complete with jealous lovers, childhood mistreatment, and death by poisoning. And all he ever wanted was to feel the sun!
