Game of Thrones has done some pretty unforgivable things, like using women as props and killing our faves but the latest for loyal fans of the HBO show was being forced to watch a block of ice melt live on the internet in order to uncover the Season 7 release date.
The live Facebook video (which stalled more than once) required fans type “FIRE” in the comments (or “DRACARYS” if you want to be extra efficient) to shoot fire at an actual physical block of ice in which the release date was hidden.
If there’s one thing the internet doesn’t like to do, it’s wait.
This has made me hate ice as much as Anakin Skywalker hates sand.
