It has a huge big budget and high and mighty production values, “Game of Thrones” does seldom make minor mistakes, but leaving a modern pickup truck in the background of a scene isn’t one of them.
A screenshot appeared on the internet from Twitter to Reddit this week and as you can imagine quickly got viral. On the surface, it looks pretty convincing. It’s a scene from Sunday’s frozen-lake battle showing a wight horde, our heroes on an island and a white pickup truck in the distance behind all the action. Yes, this actually happened. No, it wasn’t in the episode broadcast on Sunday.
The screenshot comes from. The footage seems to originate from a camera used to document the making of the episode. Taken out of context, it’s extremely funny. Fortunately, plenty of “Game of Thrones” fans were on top of things and pointed out the real origin of the truck shot.
