Was Joffrey the Hero of 'Game of Thrones' All Along? (Video)
Fan re-edit shows Joffrey as a decent, noble human being.
Played to nasty perfection by Jack Gleeson, Game of Thrones' Joffrey Baratheon stands as one of the most hateful and reviled characters in television history.
But what if he wasn't? What if Thrones were really a bildungsroman of the Harry Potter variety with Joffrey as a kind and decent person?
It's not, but this clever re-edit shows what the show might look like if Joffrey were a noble hero, not the sadistic, sniveling tow-headed product of incest that he actually was. This certainly casts the Purple Wedding in a different light.
WARNING: Spoilers (sort of) for Game of Thrones Seasons 1-4.
