HBO responds to ‘Game of Thrones’ coffee cup blunder

AKIPRESS.COM - HBO made fun of itself after eagle-eyed “Game of Thrones” viewers spotted a modern-day coffee cup in last night’s episode, The Variety reports.

“The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea,” the company stated in a press release on Monday.

For about two seconds in Sunday’s “The Last of the Starks,” a takeout coffee cup appeared on a table in front of Daenerys Targaryen around the 17:40 minute mark. Based on the size and shape, many fans assumed it was a Starbucks cup, and the hashtag #Starkbucks trended on Twitter after the episode.

In an email to Variety, “Game of Thrones” art director Hauke Richter said it’s not uncommon for items to end up misplaced on set, go unnoticed and appear in the final cuts of movies and TV shows.
