Arguably the most popular show on TV, Game Of Thrones, made a HUGE production mistake on the latest episode.
Notice that cuppa joe on the table in front of Dany?!
It's been speculated that Starbucks received the equivalent of $11million in free advertising from this mistake. And they're even cracking jokes about it!
We eventually learned the cup wasn't actually from Starbucks. But they're still reaping the benefits of the free publicity...
"Hauke Richter, ‘GoT’ Art Director for the past 5 seasons, tells TMZ … the notorious cup is NOT from Starbucks, but rather a local coffee shop in Banbridge, Northern Ireland near where they filmed.
Richter says despite the hoopla and theories about the cup, he’s certain it was just an accident. He says similar mistakes — like Vikings or Indians wearing wristwatches — happen on TV and in movies all the time … they’re just not as high-profile as ‘Thrones.’
He adds … “We are usually so diligent that this does not happen. The shoot was very hard and demanding and it is likely that after a very tiring ep 3 shoot, this was simply overlooked by an exhausted crew.”
