Imagine waking up and BOOM: there’s a 40-foot dragon skull right in front of you. That’s exactly how the people of Charmouth Beach in Dorset, England felt on July 15th, 2013. The elaborate publicity stunt is currently making fans of the hit HBO TV series Game of Thrones geek out like no other, which is exactly what the team at Blinkbox (the culprits of such awesomeness) wanted to happen. “We wanted to mark the arrival of Season 3, Game of Throneswith a spectacle every bit as dramatic as this amazing series,” says Ben Ayers, of the UK-based movie and TV streaming service, Blinkbox.
The laborious sculpture took two months to construct and sits on the shore garnering more curiosity than fear. If this is what happened when Season 3 came out, we’re anxious to see how Blinkbox one-ups this gesture for Season 4.
