Game Of Thrones Takes Over The New York Times With Awesome Print Ad

Proving that there's still life - and imagination - left in good old-fashioned print advertising, HBO took out a two-page ad in the New York Times and used it to fly a dragon right across the middle to promote the return of Games of Thrones to the TV.

If you're about to say something snide about editorial surrendering to advertising, don't sweat it, those aren't real pages of the paper.

    That's cool as fuck, would be mad to flip the page and see that...!

      lol I wonder how many people actually looked up briefly...

    Wonder if anyone who didn't expect it would suddenly look above them, thinking its a shadow :-P

      Hah! Didn't see your comment before I did up there ^^^ great minds! lol

        Haha :-P
        *looks up*
        "... I was just stretching my neck... Didn't actually expect there to be a dragon flying above me... that would be absurd..."

        *glances around, then checks again*
        "Absurd..."

        He didn't look up because your comment wasn't shaped like a dragon.

          LMFAO! See... there's benefits to things shaped like dragons...

    Best. Print. Ad. Ever. Kudos to the creatives. Wow, just wow.
