'Game of Thrones' Showrunners Address 'Funny' Coffee Cup Mishap!

The Game of Thrones showrunners are addressing the coffee cup mishap for the first time!

D.B. Weiss and David Benioff are talking about the Starbucks cup that accidentally appeared in season eight’s fourth episode and they’re finding the whole situation “funny.”

“We were concentrating so much on Daenerys and Jon Snow that we just didn’t see this coffee cup right in the middle,” David shared with Japan’s Star Channel. “So at first I couldn’t believe it, and then it was an embarrassment because, ‘How did we not see this coffee cup in the middle of the shot?’ And then, eventually, it was just funny. This one is just a mistake, and it’s kind of funny to us now.”

David then went on to compare the mistake to making a Persian rug, explaining that “it’s tradition that you make a little mistake, because only God can do anything perfect. So I guess for us, that was just our… Persian rug.”

D.B. then chimed in, jokingly adding, “That’s why I put the coffee cup there.”
