The Best Reason to Get HBO GO: Because If We're Being Honest, 'Game of Thrones' is Basically Porn and You Can't Watch That With Your Mom Around

HBO has come up with what is hands down, no question, the single best reason to get HBO GO: Because there are way too many boobs and f-bombs to watch those shows with your parents. As someone who once accidentally watched The House of Yes with her brother, I fully endorse this anti-awkwardness marketing campaign.

    It seems many families have a variety of hangups about sex. I watch this show with my family and we enjoy talking about it, sex and all.

    This kind of reminds of of when we rented Muholland Drive on Easter---EASTER--years ago, mistaking it for Mulholland Falls. Maybe the most awkward thing I've ever had to sit through, during scenes I would've enjoyed immensely by myself.

    I discovered these last night and must have watched each of them at least three times. I'm kind of in love with these parents, not going to lie.

    As someone who once accidentally watched The House of Yes with her brother...

    Oh god. Come let me give you a hug.

  • John G.

    what's that header pic scene from? Is that an upcoming scene?

  • mzbitca

    That's from the first season where she learns from her handmaiden how to please Khal Drogo

  • John G.

    man, the first season was so long ago.

  • Derreck

    Good God, this is so on point.

  • Aaron Schulz

    Thats some of the best marketing ever.

    I once caught myself explaining "it's not porn, it's HBO" to a couple of perplexed teens when that scene of 'True Detective' was on.

    Some friends of my sister had walked in the living room at the most inopportune second. I did not make eye contact with them for the rest of the night. I have since become a huge proponent of HBO Go so everyone can avoid the same embarrassment.

    So are they just going ton let me get a subscription to Hbo go now?

  • atoz15

    these are f'ing brilliant. i thought the true detective one was especially hilarious

  • Pretty, pretty good. Pretty good.

  • Col. Kickass

    I don't like Girls, but damn that commercial was the best one. I love how he's just passing through, pauses a moment, and then rotates his body to the TV because he's clearly interested in the sex scene.

  • foolsage

    That's some excellent marketing, honestly. Way to go, HBO. It made me laugh and squirm; a bit like The Office.

    Nice collection, Vivian.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    I've watched most of "Game of Thrones" with my mom and brother. We're all big fans. We mostly don't discuss the sex scenes, though I've found the ones that are woven into the story are far less awkward to handle than the ones clearly added to be fan-servicey.

  • PerpetualIntern

    I happened to watch that one scene with Littlefinger in the brothel with the random sex scene going on behind him with my parents. Agreed that it's easier to ignore if it's part of the storyline. That scene was rough.

  • vivkane

    I think 'Don't talk about it' is definitely the approach I would take with my family.
