'Game Of Thrones' Night King Rapping To Drake Video Is Too Good
There's nothing more terrifying in Westeros than the deadly ice zombie known as the Night King, but the Game of Thrones villain gave fans a rare moment of silliness recently. In a new video posted to the show's Facebook page, YouTube star Lilly Singh adds some fun to the White Walker's extensive makeup process by delivering a hilarious, high-energy lip-sync performance of Drake's "Passionfruit." The resulting Night King/Drake mashup video is stuff of pure magic. Seriously, if this is what those White Walkers are up to beyond the Wall, sign me up.
The impromptu lip-sync moment came during a ridiculously impressive makeup tutorial transforming Lilly Singh into the terrifying Game of Thrones villain. The makeup job was so impressive, many commenters on the video thought Singh was actually one of the Night King actors, Richard Brake or Vladimir Furdik. But although Singh definitely looked the part, she certainly didn't act it. Instead of giving us the icy, silent resolve the Night King is known for, Singh broke out into an exuberant lip-sync performance of "Passionfruit" by Drake, complete with handclaps, eye rolls, and some seriously fierce, Beyoncé-level head movements. Check out the full mind-boggling Night King lip-sync below; it will definitely help you get over your White Walker fears.
The bit of fun and levity from the Night King is definitely welcome now more than ever, after his terrifying display of power in Sunday night's episode of Game of Thrones. In the new episode, the penultimate of Season 7, the Night King displays the full breadth of his power by hurling a icy spear at one of Daenerys' dragons with frightening accuracy. And that spear does what most fans assumed was impossible — it actually kills the dragon. And things get even worse shortly afterward when the Night King revives the zombie dragon as the newest and definitely most formidable addition to his White Walker ranks.
It sure doesn't look like the Night King is going to be easing up anytime soon on Game of Thrones, but at least now you can just play "Passionfruit" and remember this silly video next time he gets too terrifying again.
