First we get an R&B pop song. Now, we’re getting Starbucks. Is this what Reddit was talking about when it said Game of Thrones had time travel?
Episode 4 of Game of Thrones’ last season aired today, and a fan discovered a little hiccup in a split-second shot: A coffee cup, which people are assuming is Starbucks, is placed quite visibly in the middle of a table in a mess hall scene. If you haven’t watched the episode yet, don’t worry. Plot-wise, the clip is spoiler-free.

Either this is a huge overlooked mistake, or it’s a very weird product placement slash easter egg. But as a Filipino that has watched one too many product placement-bombarded local films, I’m betting it’s the former.
In defense of the Game of Thrones team, they did just do a 55-night shoot for episode 3. Even we would be chugging coffee for life support.
