By now, we're all aware that US President Barack Obama is - like many of us - a Game of Thrones fan and that he gets advanced copies to each episode. And, again like many of us, he seems to have quite the hard time recalling each and every death in the 6 seasons of Game of Thrones. Of course, with George R. R. Martin blood thirst, you've got to admit that's pretty tough!

In a video by Buzzfeed (with almost 1.4M views so far), the President promotes voting and motivates Americans by performing 5 activities "that are harder than registering to vote". One of these things is none other than naming all the characters who have died in Game of Thrones. Obama's four other challenges are stacking Cheerios, making a friendship bracelet (for the Vice president), playing the game 'Operation' and trying to untangle some headphones.

Clearly, President Obama favors the Direwolves - since he recalls Shaggydog and Summer - but either he had a soft spot for Renly or he's really glad he's dead (Obama names him twice!). Joffrey's death is also mentioned, to what the President says:

We second that, Mr. President. We all do.

Obama may be the most powerful man in the world, but even his heart broke watching 'The Door'. Check out watch he has to say about it:


Indeed it was. As a Game of Thrones nerd myself, I've got nothing but R.E.S.P.E.C.T. for you, Mr. President. At least you tried.

What about you? Can you name every death in Game of Thrones at the top of your head?
