HBO Responds To Starbucks Gaffe In Game Of Thrones

From the Hollywood Reporter:

Savvy viewers who tuned in to the fourth episode of the HBO fantasy saga’s final season, “The Last of the Starks,” were distracted when they spotted what appeared to be an out-of-place Starbucks coffee cup in a scene taking place in Winterfell, the home of House Stark.

Starbucks later responded with a tweet. “TBH we’re surprised she didn’t order a Dragon Drink,” read the post from the coffee chain’s official handle.

In response to “inquiries from those who saw a craft services coffee cup in Sunday night’s episode,” HBO said in a statement on Monday, “The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.”
