Game of Thrones may be ineligible for the 2017 Emmys, but that doesn’t stop it from crashing the party. Honest Trailers’ latest tribute pays homage to the ridiculous TV themes of the 80’s and ushers in a new wave of retro TV updates with a bevy of music celebrities. Brian McKnight, Paula Cole, and Natasha Bedingfield step in to sing 80’s title sequence music for Stranger Things, This is Us, and The Handmaid’s Tale, respectively…but what Emmys parody is complete without GOT following closely in tow? Michael Bolton, along with his echoing, reverberating chops introduces a new song that will be stuck in your head long after you listen to it.
“But Michael, Game of Thrones isn’t eligible for Emmys this year,” says the Honest Trailers team.

Besides, it’s not exactly like they are chomping at the bits for characters to poke fun at:
