Life Game of Thrones makers laugh at coffee cup blunder By weekster Posted on September 2, 2019 2 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Months after the end of the Game of Thrones series, writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss spoke for the first time about the blunder with the coffee cup in the fourth episode of the last season. The two at first could not believe that they had made such a big mistake, but now they can laugh about it. “We were so fixated on Daenerys and Jon Snow that we didn’t see that there was another coffee cup on the table,” says David Benioff in conversation with the Japanese Star Channel. “I couldn’t believe it, so embarrassing. How had we overlooked that cup in the middle of the shot?” Looking back, the two can laugh about it. “It’s funny now. It’s just a mistake,” said the serial makers. The disposable coffee cup from Starbucks stood in the middle of the table in the main hall of Winterfell in the scene in question, when the protagonists celebrated the victory in the Battle of Winterfell. The cup quickly went viral on the internet after the broadcast and was subsequently digitally removed by the makers.
