Saved By The Bell, Game Of Thrones, Parody


There's no Zack Morris, Mr. Belding or amazing mullets, but there is sex, deaths, a dragon…and dancing.

A fan has created a mashup of Game of Thrones and Saved by the Bell, in which a parody of the '90s teen sitcom's opening theme summarizes last year's season 4 of the hit HBO fantasy series in the liveliest way. Which is pretty impressive, given that the episodes, which aired last year, depicted more than a dozen deaths, four of which are shown in the parody montage (plus one implied one.)

Spoiler alert for anyone who has yet to watch the most recent season!

Also shown in the video, titled, "Saved by the Thrones": Part of a controversial scene involving Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and her twin brother/lover Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and another (consensual) sex scene with Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and her new male lover.

The death of their son, the evil teen King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) is shown, as is the unfortunate and squeamish demise of warrior Oberyn Martell and the fatal free fall of the hag-like aunt of Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner, one of the last surviving members of the House of Stark).

Sample lyrics include: "Viper loses by a head / Petyr and Sansa just fled / She's at the moon door just in time to see her aunt fly by / It's all right 'cause it's a Game of Thrones."

And of course there are scenes showing one of Targaryen's "children," a menacing (goat-eating) dragon. And a dancing Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage).

Also, heads up! One iconic character who does not appear in season 4 makes a cameo in the parody.

In the past, fans have mashed up Game of Thrones with Frozen as well as with the cult 1987 fantasy film The Princess Bride.

The new video was posted just ahead of the season 5 premiere of Game of Thrones, which airs on April 12 (watch sneak peek clips).
