Starbucks cup being spotted on a table in front of Daenerys Targaryen in Sunday’s episode of Game of Thrones, HBO has responded to the production gaffe with humor, claiming the latte was a “mistake” — but not in the way you’d assume.
HBO confirms that Game of Thrones’ Starbucks coffee cameo was a mistake.
Honestly, though, the latte would make more sense. Defeating the dead and then having to face the army of Cersei Lannister is pretty exhausting work, so Daenerys, Jon Snow, and co. probably need to stay as caffeinated as the rest of us.
Starbucks also responded to the mistake, joking that they were surprised that Daenerys didn’t order a Dragon Drink.
