Pokémon Go Just Made Everyone Completely Forget About 'Game Of Thrones'
“Game of Thrones”? What the hell is “Game of Thrones”? I only do Pokémon Go stuff nowadays, I don't know anything about Gam -- OH! WAIT!
THAT THING WITH THE DRAGONS THAT I WAS ENTIRELY OBSESSED WITH A FEW WEEKS AGO THAT I COULD GIVE TWO GYARADOS POOPIES ABOUT NOW? YES, YES, YES, I REMEMBER THAT THING.
Pokémon Go was unleashed on the US over the weekend, and like a Fury Swipes from a level 28 Sandslash, it effing TORE THIS PLACE UP. Seriously, everyone was playing it. It's such a cultural phenomenon my mom knew about it by Sunday night.
To put this into perspective, my mom called it "YourTube" until about two months ago. I love her to death, but that lady does not get tech trends.
Pokémon Go is such a major short-term cultural zeitgeist that it could actually become the thing that supplants the massive "Game of Throne"-er we've had all summer. Seriously, we've all been thinking non-stop about "GoT" since the finale... until this weekend.
I haven't thought about (redacted for spoilers) or when (redacted for spoilers) totally (redacted for spoilers) to (redacted for spoilers) the entire (redacted for spoilers).
A lot of people found out this weekend maybe "Game of Thrones" is just not important any more.
Get with the lingo, bra!
Those who hate all things FUN AND ENJOYABLE are not having an easy time with this.
One person found a simple way to embrace all the nerd things he loves.
"Game of Thrones" is dead. Long live Pokémon Go.
