On February 3, 2019, during the Super Bowl, a commercial came on which looked like it was one of the usual Bud Light commercials. It was not. 

Starting with the usual medieval times’ look of recent Bud Light commercials, it showcased a tourney going on. The Bud Light knight, dressed in his usual blue armor, was preparing himself for action. Usually, in these commercials, it would be the knight of Bud Light that wins. That was what everyone was expecting. Surprisingly, he did not win and was actually knocked from his horse rather violently. The man he was against suddenly jumped off of his horse and stalked towards the knight. When the opponent came into view, it was a shock for every Game of Thrones fan that may have been watching. There standing above the knight was the Mountain himself. Fans of Game of Thrones are very familiar with the Mountain and his harsh ways. Back in season one, the Mountain had failed to knock his opponent off his horse and tried to kill him. 

The commercial wasn’t any less brutal. The Mountain descended upon the Bud Light knight and crushed his skull the same way showcased in the show when the Mountain had killed Oberyn Martell during a duel. The crowd of spectators who were thinking their knight would win sat in shock when a dragon suddenly appeared over them. Game of Thrones fans will recognize this dragon as Daenerys Targaryen’s favorite dragon, Drogon. The crowd screams and tries to run in panic when the dragon torches them with the very familiar and iconic theme song playing in the background. This was considered a teaser to the show’s upcoming final season airing in April of this year. 

We can assume that the Mountain is in no way affiliated with Daenerys Targaryen, a character known as the dragon queen. The last episode of the show is set to air in May and the last season is set for only six episodes compared to past seasons filled with ten episodes. With this crossover commercial, it leaves many fans with many questions, such as, “What will happen to Jon Snow?” and “Who will win the Iron Throne?” Fans may only hope to know these answers when the show’s final season finally premieres.
