SKY TV in New Zealand has erected a statue of King Joffrey in a square in Auckland and they’re giving you the chance to help turn it into nothing but rubble as part of a promotion for Season Four. All you have to do is send a tweet with the hashtag #bringdowntheking.
As the statue gains attention in real life and online, a large, medieval winch will be attached to the statue, with a rope around Joffrey’s neck, along with the appearance of the hashtag #bringdowntheking. From there, fans who’ve had enough of Joffrey’s nonsense can use the tag #bringdowntheking, and with each use of it, the rope will pull tighter around Joffrey’s head. All interested parties should head to www.bringdowntheking.com to see live webcams of all the action, see and send their own messages, as well as stay abreast of all the latest news and developments.
As mentioned, you can watch the live feed to see the statue in all its evil glory and await its inevitable demise. Now, get tweeting and kill the king.
