Oreo And HBO Recreated The Game Of Thrones Opening Sequence Using 2,750 Cookies

Oreo And HBO Recreated The Game Of Thrones Opening Sequence Using 2,750 Cookies

In a collaboration that nobody expected, HBO and Oreo have teamed up to bring us Game of Thrones-themed Oreo cookies complete with a remade opening scene made entirely out of Oreos.

Alright, so maybe there’s a bit of a link between HBO and Oreo. After all, what better way to watch Game of Thrones that with a bag of Oreo cookies? Which will soon disappear as you nervously and mindlessly chew through the entire bag on the edge of your seat.

We got our first hint that something was brewing between HBO and Oreo thanks to the @candyhunting Instagram account, which leaked a promo image of the new Oreo bag featuring some distinctive Game of Thrones iconography.

We weren’t told just when the new cookies would release, but now we don’t have to speculate. They’re out now, and Oreo announced their arrival on social media with a brand new advertisement featuring the Game of Thrones intro sequence redone in--you guessed it--Oreo cookies.

From the press release, “A playful new take on the original cookie, the pack features four unique embossments spotlighting the Great Houses still battling for the Iron Throne and the enemy White Walkers beyond the wall.”

So that means each Oreo cookie will have one of the four remaining faction’s sigils on the back. That’s House Lannister, House Targaryen, House Stark, and The Night King, for those keeping track.

But back to the video. Oreo and HBO contracted Elastic, the maker of the actual Game of Thrones title sequence, to make the Oreo-ified version. It’s a little hard to make out since everything is either black Oreo cookie or white creamy filling, but you can basically see the main structures of Westeros, including King's Landing, the Red Keep, Dragonstone, Winterfell, and a delicious looking Castle Black.

It took 2,750 Oreos to make the video, and we’re sure each and every one of them was consumed following filming.

Game of Thrones’ final season starts on April 14th. Game of Thrones Oreos are available now, so you’ve got plenty of time to stock up before the show starts.
