Would Saul Bass have created something more elegant and inventive than this mock-up by Milan Vuckovic if he had actually been asked to design opening credits for Game of Thrones? Sure. Saul Bass was the best at what he did.

But this 1960s-style opening for the show, scored to the “smooth jazz” version of the theme song by Scott Bradlee (featuring Dave Koz on saxophone), is pretty fun nonetheless.
