Game Of Thrones Season 8, Episode 4 Big Blunder: Makers Apologise For Overlooking The Starbucks Coffee Mug
While the world waited eagerly for Episode 4 of Game Of Thrones Season 8, to see what happens after the big battle of Winterfell, the response in comparison to the wait turned out to be rather tepid. But guess who saved the day for GoT makers?  Starbucks coffee mug! In one of the scenes, the popular coffee chain’s takeaway mug is visible on the table and the moment netizens took notice of the same, they went on a trolling spree to point out HBO’s big blunder.

Various memes did round of social media, mocking the carelessness of the makers’ part to oversee the misplaced mug. And now, Bernie Caulfield, an executive producer on the show in a tweet has apologised for their mistake and accepted that it was a blunder of the props division’s part, which is otherwise 1000 percent alert on-the-sets.

Still From Game Of Thrones

Bernie Caulfield, during an interview with WNYC radio today, said that the offending cup was just a simple mistake. “We’re sorry!” Caulfield said before quipping that “Westeros was the first place to actually, you know, have Starbucks.” He also added, in good humour that “if that’s the worst thing they’re finding, then we’re in good shape.”While the mistake is certainly a bit embarrassing for HBO, everyone involved seems to be taking it in good humour. “Starbucks, send us money!” joked Caulfield, as the coffee chain has begun to use the unintended cameo to plug it’s (completely unrelated to Game of Thrones) Dragon Drink. The chain tweeted from their official handle, “TBH we're surprised she didn't order a Dragon Drink.”

Meanwhile, according to a report in The Verge, there’s still no word from HBO on whether the channel will be updating the episode to remove the misplaced Starbucks cup, but the channel too has mocked the mistake and said that “the latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.”



While the cup wasn’t intended as an advertisement, who knows what kind of doors it could open going forward. But concerned fans probably shouldn’t expect Daenerys to start plugging espresso in the middle of war council meetings anytime soon.
