In Game of Thrones’ sixth season, Hodor (Kristian Nairn) died much in the same way he lived: being helpful, overworked, and generally misunderstood by the people around him. Even by Game of Thrones standards, Hodor’s fate was a sad one, but not nearly as dark as this Hodor-themed KFC commercial.
According to his Instagram, Kristian Nairn has been keeping busy with his DJ career now that he’s no longer needed on Game of Thrones. But that doesn’t mean the fan-fave actor has completely left his life as Hodor behind, as he discovered when he returned to his parents’ home in Belfast and saw this.
Well, this was inevitable: someone is paying tribute to our favorite Game of Thrones character with a doorstop in his likeness. Hodor!
Sure, to us, Chewie, Groot and Hodor might be communicating in nonsensical languages, but what if these characters could actually understand each other? Turns out, they'd head to Mos Eisley for a supportive get-together according to Brotherhood Workshop's latest Lego short.
If you're still reeling from the news that neither Bran nor Hodor will be making an appearance in the next season of Game of Thrones, this nine-inch detailed figure of the pair will have to be your consolation prize until the next, next season rolls around.
Gods be good, this figure would be a million times better if it just came with a button in the base that you could press to get it to loudly exclaim 'HODOR!'.
Already bored with Yo but eager to experiment with a copycat app using the popularity of a prestige drama as its hook? Then you'll love Yo, Hodor, the Game of Thrones-themed parody of the single-word novelty app. It's the same thing as Yo except you send the word "Hodor" to your friends instead of the word "Yo."
Summer is giving us one last heat wave before turning into fall, and your humble post-apocalyptic fake mailman couldn’t be more ready for some cool weather. You know what the truest mark of civilization is? It’s not buildings, language, community, or even social justice. It’s goddamned air conditioning.
Apparently Game of Thrones actor Kristian Nairn, who plays Hodor on the show, is actually a pretty well-known DJ in his native Ireland. No doubt he busts a mean Hodor while hodoring the Hodors on the dance hodor.
