HBO’s bloody fantasy series Game of Thrones returns for Season 4 tonight, and HootSuite has pulled together a creative reminder of how social media life can imitate art.
You don’t have to know the difference between House Stark and House Lannister to appreciate HootSuite’s homage to the show’s opening credits with Facebook, Google, Twitter and LinkedIn standing in for Game of Thrones kingdoms. HootSuite explains:
Just like at the start of the show, geometric buildings emerge section by section from a flat plane as you fly over them from above. Each of the kingdoms has characteristics and features unique to the social network they represent, from Google’s YouTube coliseum to the big job market of LinkedIn. There are also a few hidden easter eggs—see how many you can find.
And if it serves as a none-too-subtle reminder that HootSuite can help you rule your social media stable? That’s a happier ending than we can expect for the show.
