The popularity of the HBO series "Game of Thrones" has transcended to viral videos involving animals. In 2012, a video was uploaded to YouTube of a cat meowing the show's theme song. With the show now back for its third season, we have a compilation of goats bleating to the theme song.
Spanish comedy site Marca Blanca produced the video, titled "GAME OF GOATS (Game of Thrones Goat Version) #GOaT." Get it? G-O-T and G-O-A-T. Anyway, the mash up stars the Internet's most famous goats and a few sheep. All of the clips are edited to sound like each animal is bleating a different part of the song. Marca Blanca used the show's actual open to start the video and put the theme in there to back the goats. The clip ends with a custom "Game of Goats" graphic.
Goats and sheep that bleat like humans plus "Game of Thrones" clearly equals an Internet home run. The video, which was uploaded on Wednesday, already has over 1.1 million views. Maybe you are thinking, "You have goat to be kidding me, right?" You are not alone in that thought, as other YouTube commenters have posted the exact same thing. But yes, the video and its view count are real.
If for some reason you need goats without the HBO show, then perhaps this super cut of goats bleating is more your speed. It was uploaded a year ago and has north of 23 million hits.
