Oh man this is real HOORAY THIS LIFE.
This morning intrepid beach-goers in Dorset discovered a 40 foot long dragon skull seemingly washed up onto the shore. So either this has something to do with Game of Thrones or our world has changed forever.
The skull turns out to be a marketing event for Blinkbox, a UK streaming video service that is offering Game of Thrones season 3 soon. According to their site the skull, situated on Charmouth beach on Dorset’s Jurassic coast, took “a team of three sculptors took over two months to design, construct and paint.” Not mentioned is how awesome it is that things like this are happening in real life.
The inspiration for creating the skull came from a scene in A Game of Thrones where Arya stumbles upon the massive skulls of dragons long gone. More info and pictures can be found on Blinkbox’s blog.
Perhaps the little girl in the above picture is creating King’s Landing? We can only speculate. And wish we were in the UK so we could climb on the dragon.
