Jon Snow apologizes to the world for Game of Thrones season 8 in a new DeepFake video. To say the final season of the hit HBO show was divisive would be a massive understatement. As soon as the credits rolled on the final episode, angry fans started a petition to have the entire season 8 rewritten and remade by "competent" writers and as of this writing, the petition has over 1.6 million signatures. Now, Kit Harington's Jon Snow addresses the audience in a pretty convincing DeepFake video.
The DeepFake apology is taken from the fourth episode, The Last of the Starks, where Jon Snow pays tribute to those who lost their lives in the dark and brutal Battle of Winterfell. "I'm sorry we wasted your time," Snow declares. He goes on to say, "I'm sorry we didn't learn anything from the ending of Lost." The faked out Kit Harington goes on to address the infamous Starbucks cup and then even burns the Game of Thrones season 8 script while yelling, "F*ck season 8!" This might be just the thing some fans have been waiting weeks for.
Game of Thrones fans are still bitter about how everything came to a close after waiting over a year for the final season. There were episodes that were too dark to see what was happening, a coffee cup fiasco, the disappointing ending for Cersei, the disappointing end of the Night King, the disappointing story arc for Daenerys, and a whole lot more. Basically, some fans hated just about every second of footage shown during the final season, except for some truly epic visuals. While fans didn't like Daenerys' story this time around, they did enjoy watching her scorch King's Landing, especially when Metallica's "For Whom the Bell Tolls" was the soundtrack in a reworked fan-made video.
While many would have thought the outrage over Game of Thrones season 8 would have subsided by now, that sadly is not the case. It was just announced HBO has submitted the season 8 episodes The Last of the Starks, The Bells, and The Iron Throne for Emmy consideration under Best Direction and Best Writing. This is not sitting well with fans who feel they were cheated out of a proper ending and as one can imagine, they are letting the internet know.
Whatever the case may be, hopefully some angry Game of Thrones fans will get a kick out of watching a DeepFake Jon Snow apologize to them while burning the season 8 scripts in a blaze of glory. And if not, maybe we can all marvel at how scary these DeepFake videos are getting and how soon we won't even know how to separate reality from fiction anymore.
