Conan O’Brien pokes fun at George R.R. Martin’s writing regimen in skit

GRRM

Team Coco responded to George R.R Martin’s announcement that the The Winds of Winter‘s release is delayed in true Conan O’Brien fashion: with another skit following “George R.R. Martin” around with hidden cameras as he fails to work on the next installment of A Song of Ice and Fire.

This is more or less a continuation of the skit O’Brien did last summer during San Diego Comic Con, in which supposedly hidden cameras filmed Martin buying more “R”s for his name, swimming in his pool and bouncing naked on his trampoline rather than writing.

    1. I saw the other skit Conan did like this and I laughed my ass off… as I cried whiskey soaked tears of pain because it is very true.

    2. I know GRRM is entitled to do whatever he pleases and can (and should) be working on his own schedule to (hopefully) ensure the best quality writing, however; I find these skits hilarious!!!! I can just imagine this actually happening! Something to help pass the time until the Winds is released….oh, and HODOR!!!!!

    3. This was a GREAT way to soothe some of the pain….Oh the painfulness of waiting for Mr. Martin. Someone should write a song. 😀

      Just for S & G’s, let’s see how many people threaten to do who knows what if they don’t get a trailer….

      *runs*

    4. Crazy that there is no trailer yet. I just saw a new trailer for Outlander Season 2 (my other book/tv obsession), which also comes out in April. This is the 2nd full trailer released for that show. Those GOT people are really keeping things a secret until the very end. Makes us all drool in anticipation more, hehe 😉

    5. Maybe they are doing this throwback Thursday to get the Twitter going again and then tomorrow we’ll be looking to the future instead of the past with the trailer announcement.

    6. I keep seeing people making comments about the trailer being late, but the first trailer last year came out on Friday January 30th, which was 72 days before the season 5 premiere. This year, the equivalent date is Friday February 12th, aka tomorrow. HBO isn’t really late on delivering the trailer until this Saturday, by my math. Did I miss something?

    7. Funny, and actually slightly accurate I guess

      OT: If we don’t hear anything about the trailer by tomorrow, then I won’t be expecting it this Sunday.

      The whole point of pairing the trailer to the Vinyl premiere would be to boost that show’s viewership, and they won’t be boosting anything if people don’t know a trailer’s coming.

    8. Adam,

      I think it seems a lot later compared with last year because last year we knew the trailer would be released with the first IMAX viewing. For me, at least, the wait would be easier if I knew we would get it on a certain date.

      Hi, Dee! Long time no see!
      I guess we’ll get the trailer with the Vinyl first episode, which is OK with me, I intended to watch this show anyway.

      Yeah last year we knew when we were getting the trailer weeks before it released which helped a great deal. We also had the IMAX Experience and the Day in the Life documentary by this time last year.

    11. The Silicon Valley twitter account released a 30 seconds trailer for its 3rd season. Silicon Valley begins the new season in the same day as GoT. So, don’t despair people! The waiting is almost over 🙂

      Not seeing anything we haven’t already seen. Am I missing something?

      EDIT: Nevermind. For some reason the page hadn’t updated for me yet. Weird.

    15. Wylie,

      Thanks for the link, but I don’t see any photos from season 6.
      All I see are the teaser trailers from the 3 houses we’ve already seen.
      Am I missing something?

    16. Wow, doesn’t it look like BR and Bran are standing at Castle Black (it would have to be a vision, but really, really intriguing!!!)?

      Also, love the picture of Jaime and Cersei and Theon and Sansa!!!

      ps – Still want Daenery’s dragon necklace.

      Sansa and Theon look like crap. Arya looks creepy. Love it.

      Jaime and Tommen with Myrcella. . . 🙁 there was no antidote.

      Someone has written a song! Well, it’s about the wait for ADWD, but close enough. It’s on Radio Westeros’s podcast (You Tube) Episode 20 titled Prophecies in ASOIAF. Entertaining, the song and the podcast.

      Sorry yet?

      What the??? That was uncalled for, don’t you think? And if you must know, personally, I don’t care if GRRM doesn’t publish TWOW until 2020, if it that’s the time it takes to get the book finished the way he wants it.

    24. Anybody else as ancient as me, seeing ‘George’ inside that giant plastic bubble and immediately jumping to the conclusion that he tried to escape the Village again and they sent Rover to catch him?

      ‘I am not your bitch! I am a free man!’

      ‘BWAAAAHAAAHAAHAAHAHA!’

    25. Shy Lady Dragon, #

      Hey there! *waves tiredly*

      I started a new job two weeks ago, and I’m – as they say in German – walking on my gums, i.e. it’s super stressful and tiring. When I get on the site to check for news at night, I’m usually to tired to do more than read. Alas, it’s probably going to get better as soon as I’ve adjusted to my new schedule, so hopefully in a few weeks.
      But hey, it’s Friday and I have nothing planned! Imma get drunk while studying the new pictures!

    26. dee,

      Congratulations on your new job and good luck!
      These pictures have an inebrianting quality, you don’t need wine while looking at them – although the Cersei diet is, undeniably, pleasant 🙂
