Someone actually made a musical memorial for this villain in “Game of Thrones”
SPOILER ALERT: If you’re not caught up on Game of Thrones — especially on last week’s episode, “Battle of the Bastards” turn back now! You have been warned! Winter is coming!!
Ready? You sure?!
The moment Game of Thrones fans has been waiting for finally happened — Ramsay Bolton is dead.
Bolton joined the slew of contemptible characters that we’ve had the pleasure of bidding adieu, after Sansa Stark fed him to his own hounds, a fitting end made possible by one of his former victims. But with the villain’s passing comes even more greatness — a tongue-in-cheek musical video in memory of his death.
Created by comedian Piyush Sharma, the one-minute video shows some of Bolton’s worst moments, with statements like “carefree lover” and “a genuine friend,” in between clips. His video is certainly attracting attention, and already has 5,000 likes on Facebook and more than 350 comments. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=
“I loved acting and the intensity in the character. In an ideal world, he was bad, but everyone loved to hate him,” Sharma told Mashable. “Being a stand-up comedian, I thought a sarcastic tribute would be fitting.”
We wholeheartedly agree. The darkly funny tribute to one of the bleakest TV characters in history is something we feel Ramsay himself would appreciate. And certainly so would Iwan Rheon, the actor behind Ramsay, who seems like a pretty hilarious guy himself.
Of course, with a major, multi-season villain down for the count, we can’t help but wonder where our next dose of extra-evil is going to come from. Ramsay may be irreplaceable, but we’re worried about who might be big enough to fill his villainous shoes (please, no one from Dorne.)
