Infamous Game of Thrones Starbucks Cup Shows Up in Skyrim
PC modders have managed to extend Skyrim’s cultural relevancy yet again with a not-so-subtle nod to the famed Game of Thrones coffee mishap.
In case you missed it – though that seems nearly impossible considering it’s been one of the most talked about pop culture goofs of the past year – someone on the Game of Thrones production team accidentally left a coffee cup on set during a shoot for episode 4 of the fantasy epic’s final season.
The error in the Game of Thrones episode has since been corrected, but the initial response on social media was immediate and all-consuming, with even HBO and Starbucks getting in on the fun. Now, the Skyrim modder JohnRose18 has added the infamous latte into Bethesda’s 2011 open-world adventure (Skyrim also came out in 2013, 2016, 2017, and 2018, but this mod only works on the PC version).
