Colbert says it’s “the biggest anachronism in popular fantasy since Gollum’s Big Gulp”
Sorry, Arya! The most popular character on Game of Thrones this week is actually the random cup of coffee that appeared in front of Daenerys Targaryen during the feast after the Battle of Winterfell.
Meanwhile, Jimmy Kimmel also took some time out of monologue to joke about some fans’ claims that the cup took them out of the episode. “Because a Starbucks cup is what makes the show feel not real — not the dragons, not the zombies made of ice,“ Kimmel joked. The host also shared a very specific, food-related gripe about the show. “I hate the scenes in Game of Thrones when they’re eating and drinking, because it drives me nuts to hear the actors slurping from those goblets — it makes the hairs on my back stand up,” Kimmel said. “No manners at all during the Game of Thrones times! Instead of an episode you can’t see, I’d like one you can’t hear if they’re going to do that drinking thing.”
