KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- If you're a fan of HBO's Game of Thrones series, you're probably very familiar with the intro, a two-minute opener that tours the fantasy world of the Seven Kingdoms.
YouTube user NicksplosionFX has created an 8-bit version of that intro using Nintendo's Super Mario Brothers video game graphics. He's even included Nintendo landmarks like "Vanilla Fortress," "Ludwig's Castle."
The caption for the video: "Mario always pays his debts ... with Dragon Coins!"
The video, posted Tuesday, has 446,790 hits on YouTube Wednesday afternoon.
