There was a major mistake in Episode 4 of Game of Thrones last night and it’s a pretty hilarious one. During the big dinner scene in the episode as Tormund toasts Jon Snow, Daenerys sulks in the background, giving Jon the side eye for all the attention he’s getting. However, eagle eyed viewers noticed an unusual object in the background, right next to Daenerys. What was the object? Why, a modern day Starbucks coffee cup, all of things! The plastic looking thing stood out in contrast to the rustic, moodily lit surroundings of the Winterfell hall and although a little hard to spot, you can’t unsee it once you do.
See if you can spot the offending latte in this GIF below:

Naturally, the Internet reacted to this error with the usual storm of hilarious tweets and reactions. Here are some of the best ones below:
Felt like a failure today but then I saw that dozens of production and post-production crew failed to see that a Starbucks cup was left in a Game Of Thrones shot from their third to last episode ever & now I feel better.

GoT set person 1: Who left a Starbucks cup in the shot?
GoT set person 2: I don’t know. Check for a name.
GoT set person 1: (picks up cup and examines) A cup has no name.

Oops! That was a considerable blooper, that’s for sure. Perhaps this was all part of a strange tie in deal with Starbucks! After all, who wouldn’t want to have a Starbucks cup that says this on it?
It is always hilariously baffling when things like this happen, considering Game of Thrones’s massive production costs. Still, it provided many great laughs and memes from the fanbase. Did you catch the Starbucks mug in all its glory in this episode? What was your reaction to it? Let us know in the comments!
