‘Game of Thrones’ kills off the Bud Knight in epic Super Bowl commercial

The Big Game

(Nexstar) — A Bud Light commercial took an interesting turn with the appearance of The Mountain and a dragon from Game of Thrones.

It started out like many other medieval-themed ‘Dilly Dilly’ commercials. The king and queen were enjoying a jousting competition, with their champion, the Bud Knight.

Suddenly, the Bud Knight was unhorsed by a mysterious knight, revealed to be Gregor ‘The Mountain’ Clegane from Game of Thrones. After The Mountain dispatched the Bud Knight, a dragon arrived and laid waste upon the kingdom.

The commercial then teased the upcoming final season of Game of Thrones.
