‘Game of Thrones’ goes to the dogs … and cats

With the wait for new “Game of Thrones” episodes being a rather long one — and with us being in a quiet period when it comes to scoop being leaked to the press — why not have a little bit of fun courtesy of some viral videos?

The following clips are sure to bring out the animal lover in you — at least so long as you want your animals singing epic battle anthems. First, let’s start things off with a tune performed by a cat to the classic theme song to the HBO series — what made this so funny was that it was a little bit surprising, and the fact that the cat was pretty cute did not hurt, either.

Now, there has been a new video released that is pretty much the same thing, except now with a dog. Is it impressive? Sure, but the humor now is a little bit gone since it’s pretty much the same sort of thing in a barking voice. (Plus, we have seen videos of “singing dogs” for years — remember the ones that perform Christmas carols?)

Season 3 of “Game of Thrones” will return to HBO with new episodes on Sunday, March 31 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time. The show has quickly become HBO’s most-watched programs, and it is videos like this that further show that the series is going to be around for some time. If you are a passionate enough to make a video of a dog singing the theme song, you are probably going to be passionate enough to recommend the show to your friends.
