This is not funny! In what will go down as one of the worst April Fool’s jokes ever, it came out less than an hour before airing that tonight’s HBO premier of the second season of Game of Thrones is a fake.
Instead of the first show of the new season, HBO has decided to serve fans a one hour special hosted by Tyrion Lannister (wearing a jester’s outfit, no less). Granted, the special promises some cool behind-the-scenes goodies and previews of the upcoming season, but that does not make this okay.
The actual first episode will (supposedly) air next Sunday. HBO, you will pay for this.
More details, if you even care any more.
