Matthew Olson, the Shirtless Violinist, follows up his recent videos ranging from Lady Gaga (“Bad Romance”) and Les Miserables (“I Dreamed A Dream”) with this timely cover of the theme from Game of Thrones which returns on July 16.
The hunky violin player performs a mashup of the Game of Thrones theme song along with “Light of the Seven,” which was featured at the end of season 6.
And that frigid landscape isn’t CGI. Apparently the vid was shot on the snowy peak of Mt. Baker in Washington State.
He considered calling the music video “Gay Hunks of Thrones” until he realized there’s a porn film with the same name. He came up with the alternative “House of Stark Naked.”
Watch the talented Mr. Olson below.
