Game of Thrones parody from Sesame Street crowns a new ruler of Jesteros

With the season five premiere of Game of Thrones just six days away, you can take a walk on the lighter side today with Sesame Street's latest parody, "Game of Chairs."

Grover Bluejoy leads a musical game of chairs in which Cersei Lannister, Joffrey Baratheon, Daenerys Targaryen and Robb Stark compete for the Iron Throne. You might call it the Nine-Iron Throne, since it's made of golf clubs and golf balls. But Bluejoy doesn't quite know what he's doing — "the monster is blue and full of errors," says Melisandre — so Ned Stark ends up doing most of the explaining. Along the way, we learn how to count to three.

Earlier this year, Sesame Street took on another for-adults-only TV show, House of Cards, in the style of the Three Little Pigs fable.

Game of Thrones season five premieres this Sunday, April 12, at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. You can read our spoiler-free thoughts on the season's first four episodes right now.
