Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you mixed two very different shows into one? YouTube channel Snow Stories did! See what would happen if the world of Game of Thrones had its own reality game show in Big Brother: Westeros.
The parody introduces its characters in a similar manner to how they would be on Big Brother, with each contestant looking strikingly familiar to one from the popular television show on HBO, albeit with slightly different names. All except Kevin, an accountant, who might be on the wrong show. The skit really gives off a similar vibe to The Chappelle Show’s skit “The Mad Real World,” but with fun Game of Thrones oriented content instead.
Big Brother: Westeros is the first piece of content released on the channel that hasn’t focused on Magic: The Gathering. The channel gained considerable popularity earlier this year when they debut their scripted live-action YouTube series surrounding the hit card game titled Mana Screwed.
Since the show’s first season wrapped up on Aug 4, 2017, Snow Stories has continued to post weekly videos to it’s channel. The content that was posted was mostly made up of games of Magic or other things pertaining to it. While the videos are by no means bad, so far it has left somewhat of a void for fans of Mana Screwed who aren’t also fans of the card game, like myself.
Big Brother: Westeros will mark the first of many videos to help fill that void though. At the end of the parody, actor and co-creator Austin Herring explained that there will be more skits coming to the channel in the next few months, leading up to Mana Screwed Season 2.
Snow Stories is currently in the process planning the shoots for the next two skits, one is IT themed and the features zombies, both of which will be shot sometime in the next couple of weeks.
