Samuel L. Jackson has basically never said no to a role, so it shouldn't be a surprise that when some ambitious HBO marketing intern had the genius idea of getting Nick Fury to narrate a Game of Thrones recap spanning all six seasons, the big man with the potty mouth got his ass to the studio and spit a few bars.
Like chorizo pancakes on a Tuesday and a whole bunch of other things you never knew you needed, Jackson's eight-minute take on the recent history of Westeros is a bit of a game-changer — the Beyoncé reference is just the tip of the iceberg (or the wall).
If you're the kind of person whose immediate response to watching an eight-minute video is "I could watch almost 100 Vines in that time," ask yourself how many of those Vines feature the words "You wanna see a dragon, motherfucker?". Check out the recap below courtesy of HBO; I swear by the old Gods and the new, you won't regret it.
It's fun taking a nostalgia trip back to earlier seasons — I'd almost forgotten how deliciously hateful Viserys was, and how different Cersei looked before her hair was so cruelly chopped off — especially when peppered with so much bad language that even Tyrion Lannister would wrinkle his nose.
All we need now is for the imp to narrate Snakes On A Plane to hype the release of the 10th anniversary Director's Cut on Blu-ray.
(That's not really a thing. Yet.)
You can catch up with Game of Thrones Season 6, or just binge it all over again, on HBO's in-house streaming service HBO Now, or illegally. You can't watch it on Netflix, because HBO hates you and wants your money.
