That Was Definitely Aaron Rodgers on Game of Thrones the Other Night
Since the wildly popular show will be wrapping up soon and the longtime Green Bay Packer QB is sort of a big deal, he apparently decided it was time to pop in for a cameo.
The two-time NFL MVP has been teasing this appearance for a while now, but it finally came to fruition this past Sunday night.
Many news outlets were quick to pounce on this important development.
Apologies for that painful news anchor banter, but they're legally obligated to converse awkwardly for an indeterminate amount of time.
Anyway, that did appear to be Mike McCarthy's best bud as a common soldier lined up in tight formation, but he was also apparently attempting to escape an explosion later in the episode.
Well, that seems straightforward enough, but before we present the future Hall of Famer with an Emmy to pair with his ESPY awards, there are a few conspiracy theorists who would like to weigh in.
Shockingly, there are some folks on the Internet with some time to kill, and these sharp-eyed viewers have a few questions.
Hmmm, the plot thickens.
I don’t think any of the Aaron Rodgers GOT clips that are going around right now are him. In the behind the scenes he says he’s “helping a woman” and he’s got a beard and a red hat. After some deep investigating I think he’s the dude dragging someone behind Arya in this clip: pic.twitter.com/iniKiY9m5t— Dana Bishop (@danafbishop) May 13, 2019
This is just too much information to process all at once.
Fortunately, the good people at Deadspin have done some groundbreaking work on the subject.
What we do know is that Rodgers has officially joined the pantheon of professional athletes and other celebrities with little or no acting ability to appear in television and film, not to mention the lengthy list that applies to Games of Thrones itself.
Let's see Rodgers tackle that dialogue.
