What if Joffrey was the hero of Game of Thrones?

What if Joffrey was the hero of Game of Thrones?

The death of King Joffrey Baratheon (first of his name) in the fourth season of Game of Thrones was a bittersweet moment for Westeros.

It was a moment fans had longed for - the slow, agonising death of one of TV's (and literature's) most malicious characters, justice apparently being wielded by George R R Martin as the show's only star we wanted to see die popped his sinister clogs.

Except... it left the show with a void. An evil itch just longing to be scratched. Perhaps we had misunderstood Joffrey all along? Perhaps he was the anti-hero we'd all been secretly hoping would win the day?

It's an idea that's clearly crossed the mind of BloodBlitz Comedy: their latest YouTube mashup sees the one true king of Westeros recast as the hero of HBO's fantasy adaptation.

Did we get Joffrey all wrong...?

No. He was a bastard.
