Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4 was in the headlines recently for that epic Starbucks cameo during the dinner celebration held in the aftermath of the Battle of Winterfell. As Jon Snow was being honoured by his men for his bravery, leaving Daenerys Targaryen in a fix, the viewers could not take their eyes off the misplaced coffee cup gaffe, which was evident in the dining table. Accepting the mistake was HBO who had tweeted, "News from Winterfell. The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. #Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea."
The one who made the most out of this unfortunate incident was Starbucks. The America coffee company took to their Twitter handle to address the hysteria surrounding the GOT coffee cup gaffe. Starbucks tweeted, "TBH we're surprised she didn't order a Dragon Drink." Now, that is a way to tactfully promote your company while having the last laugh as well. One Twitter user furthered the conversation and replied, "Rhaegal needed one." To this, Starbucks shared a crying emoji. This tweet exchange was in reference to the sudden death of Queen Dany's dragon Rhaegal, at the hands of Euron Greyjoy.
