The most meta ‘Game of Thrones’ moment on the Internet today
Two nights ago, Kristen Wiig appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and pretended to be Daenerys Targaryen aka Khaleesi the entire time. It was amazing. Yesterday, we spent all day re-watching it — it’s one of those Kristen Wiig bits that just gets funnier and funnier. Apparently, we weren’t the only ones laughing, Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, also thought it pretty great.
Clarke posted a picture to her Instagram showing her laughing along with the Wiig interview. The picture was fab. Check it out:
But for the Internet, it just wasn’t enough. The Interwebz quickly got Photoshopping and a beautiful new GoT meme was born. Soon, Clarke wasn’t just laughing at the interview. She was laughing at everything, both in the real world and in Westeros.
She was laughing at the Terminator trailer.
She was laughing at Joe Biden eating ice cream.
She was also having some fun with Tyrion.
Like endless fun.
And then our personal fave: Wiig impersonating Clarke, while Clarke impersonates Wiig.
It hath no end.
There are hundreds more in the Reddit thread that started it all. Job well done, Internet. You’ve made Khaleesi proud.
Also lest you forget, Kristen Wiig has come to the Tonight Show in character before. Remember that whole, dressed as Harry Styles thing?
Who’s next, Wiig?
