Apparently Denmark has their own
red-headed stepchild Conan O’Brien — Anders Breinholt — who hosts a late night talk show, called Natholdet (Night Shift). Breinholt recently invited Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau to take part in a “Gold Hand Challenge,” which basically means, do a bunch of silly stuff while wearing two fake gold hands — instead of Jaime Lannister’s one. After the boys had their fun, the host talked about how Thrones-mania has taken over everything, everywhere, including his entire workplace. The ensuing footage is goddamned glorious. Just watch:
I want to work in that office.
Also, is this not the Jaime Lannisterish of photos?
In other GoT-related news, your pal and mine, George R. R. Martin avoided yet another tedious evening writing The Winds of Winter with a showing of Free the Nipple at the John Cocteau theater (which the author owns). In an interview discussion last year, Martin had been informed about the film, and spoken on other countries normalizizing naked breasts:
“…if you’re in Europe and you grow up going to these topless beaches, you grow up seeing all these breasts — the breasts of pretty young girls, the breasts of 80-year-old grandmothers, the breasts of flat-chested girls, of fat girls — and it just becomes, ‘Oh, it’s another breast.’ It loses much of its sexual power.”(via Vulture)
Being the magnanimous sort of fella he is, GRRM was willing to put his full support behind gender equalized breast-exposure attitudes; he even offered attendees nipple-cakes.
