HBO Responds To Leaving The Coffee Cup In The Game Of Thrones Episode, Says It Wasn’t Starbucks

Published 5 years ago

The new season of Game of Thrones just keeps surprising us: first, it was the pitch dark ‘Battle at Winterfell’ episode that the fans had to brighten themselves, then came the hilarious Starbucks cup blooper, that some fans found simply hilarious. However, not all fans are enjoying the latest season of the show – some say it’s the weakest season of Game of Thrones so far, blaming poor writing and obvious mistakes like the leftover coffee cup. The search term “Game of Thrones Season 8 Sucks” even started trending on Google and we sincerely hope that the few remaining episodes will make up for the lackluster start.

“Things can get forgotten on set,” said Hauke Richter, the art director of Game of Thrones in an interview with Variety. He also said that the whole coffee cup ordeal was blown out of proportion because it has never happened in the show so far.

In an interview with WYNC, Bernadette Caulfield, the executive producer of the show said she couldn’t believe it. “Our on-set prop people and decorators are so on it one thousand percent. I just honestly can’t, I’m like, is that really? Because nowadays you can’t believe what you see because people can put things into a photo that really doesn’t exist.” said Caulfield. “But I guess maybe it was there, I’m not sure. But, yeah. We’re sorry!”

Here’s what Starbucks had to say about the whole ordeal

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
