Actor Jack Gleeson made quite the lasting impression with his portrayal of the ruthless baby king Joffrey Baratheon in Seasons 1 through 3 of “Game of Thrones.”
His performance was so good that it’s hard for many “GoT” fans to separate the actor from the character.
This means that when Gleeson posted a photo of himself hugging a pug on Twitter in January 2016, it’s hard to not see Joffrey, a powerful, bloodthirsty brat, cuddling an innocent animal.
On Monday, the picture made its way to Reddit’s popular Photoshop Battle thread, and, let’s just say Reddit users also had a hard time separating Gleeson from the Iron Throne.
The result is a bunch of Photoshopped versions of Gleeson’s pug picture that are a straight-up Greyjoy for any “GoT” fan to behold.
For instance, there are a few pretty innocent photos with pretty blatant references to the HBO show:
Then, there are few that are a little more esoteric. For example, the caption on this one is, “Nymeria still keeps biting me!”
And this picture boasts the hilarious caption: “Oysters, Clams, and Pug.”
One Redditor went there with a Ned Stark beheading reference:
Then another Redditor decided to reference a completely different kind of king:
Oh, internet, don’t ever change.
