The Simpsons has always been at the forefront of pop-culture parody over the past two decades, so it should come as no surprise that last night's episode of the show put HBO's Game of Thrones into its crosshairs. The show used Game of Throne's opening title sequence as the basis for its legendary couch gag, complete with some great animation and enough little details to keep the hardcore Thrones fans happy.

Instead of using the show for joke fodder, this couch gag is a loving tribute to one of the freshest series currently on cable. And the timing couldn't be more perfect as Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season will be hitting DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow and with season two of the show ready to premiere in less than a month.
