Game Of Thrones With Pugs!
You wouldn’t normally associate pugs with treachery and blood-letting, but in a new promo released by blinkbox, three pooches appear suited and booted in a barking homage to Game of Thrones.
‘The Pugs of Westeros’ sees Roxy, Blue and Bono playing doggy versions of the main characters, including conniving King Joffrey.
The pugs’ owners, Phillip Lauer (57) and his wife Sue (47), have been dressing their pugs up as characters from cinema and TV since they were puppies.
Phillip said: “Sue is a professional photographer and designer and she loves to take pictures of our pugs in various scenarios. When blinkbox set us the challenge of Game of Thrones tribute we couldn’t resist. Sue spent two weeks just creating the Iron Throne alone but it was well worth it.”
He added: “The pugs have been doing this since they were puppies. We have a studio set up in the garage and whenever I walk them towards it they get excited, no doubt wondering what’s next. It’s fun for them, but they do take it seriously – they are proper little professionals.”
The puggy viral was created to promote Season 4 of the HBO show’s arrival on blinkbox.
There’s even a ‘Making Of’ video
