Watch Skyrim and ‘Game of Thrones’ collide in this epic video

Do you love Skyrim? And "Game of Thrones"?

Okay, watch this and then we'll talk:

Thrones from Brady Wold on Vimeo.

Titled "Thrones," this epic collision of the most recent release from Bethesda's Elder Scrolls role-playing video game series and the opening sequence to the HBO fantasy series based on George R. R. Martin's novels started as an "exercise to kill time" for animator Brady Wold around two years ago.

"After thousands of hours," Wold wrote on the video's Vimeo page Tuesday, "it's time to move on to bigger, and better things." With the fourth season of Game of Thrones not premiering until Sunday night, impatient fans may want to consider killing time by visiting the majestic forests and icy peaks of the Nordic homeland.
