HBO recruited some of its biggest fans to “Binge #ForTheThrone,” and they’re names you’ll recognize: Jimmy Kimmel, Kristin Chenowth, T-Pain, and Aaron Rodgers. In a new promo video for the binging campaign, the four celebs introduce themselves (Jimmy of House Kimmel, Lady Kristin of House Chenoweth, Lord Aaron of House Rodgers, and Sir T of House of Pain) while sitting on the iconic Iron Throne.
As the GoT theme music plays beneath their interviews, each celeb talks about the show and generally goof around. Rodgers describes the show in far less than 280 characters—“There’s an Iron Throne, people want it,”—and T-Pain says how loyal he is to the show, noting that he named one of his albums “The Iron Way.”
As fun as the video is, the Binge#ForTheThrone campaign isn’t done with these celebs quite yet. HBO divided up the first ten episodes of the first season, and each super-fan will watch and tweet along with their episodes at a designated time.
Jimmy Kimmel will watch the first three episodes starting tonight at 7 p.m. Eastern Time; Kristin Chenoweth will watch and tweet along with the following two episodes tomorrow night (Dec. 21); T-Pain will take his turn Saturday (Dec. 22) starting at 5 p.m.; and Aaron Rodgers will wrap things up with the final three episodes on Sunday (Dec. 23) at 6 p.m.
HBO encourages fans to follow and tweet along with the stars, using the #ForTheThrone hashtag.
