An Autotune of Ice and Fire: A Remix to Get You Pumped for Game of Thrones

The guy who brought us the autotuned tribute to Steve Irwin—John D. Boswell, a.k.a. Melodysheep—has put his voice-manipulating skills to work once again to make this musical tribute to Game of Thrones.

His latest video takes scenes from show and autotunes them into a sort of collective battle cry. Daenerys has the honor of “singing” the chorus (“I am the dragon’s daughter”), but the best part is the song-ification of the Night’s Watch oath at the beginning. The clip (which contains spoilers only for Season 1) is the perfect way to get pumped for Season 4, premiering April 6.
