Someone Left A Coffee Cup In A 'Game Of Thrones' Shot
Game of Thrones' final season is four episodes deep, and the audience have had many complaints about both the audio and visual quality, with comments that it's been "too dark to see".
Now, viewers have yet another comment on the show... they're never happy, huh?

But this one is pretty valid - on the fourth episode of season eight, which aired last night in the US, a Starbucks coffee cup is clearly visible in one shot.
During a celebratory feast, in amongst all of the historically accurate metal goblets of wine, there is one outlier - a very distinct, very recognisable, coffee cup.
It's not quite clear who is at fault here, but one thing became very clear - that fans would take to Twitter to mock the show mercilessly and post endless memes of the offending cup.
The cup was on the grand table of the nobles, in front of Jon Snow's seat, so maybe it's Kit Harington who likes to wind down with a pumpkin spice latte?

Some have even speculated that it's a deliberate move by the showrunners to get people talking about the show.
Considering they don't actually need that much extra publicity, it looks pretty likely that everyone just goofed. It happens.

Now, people have their own theories - even commenting that they want the cup itself to win the Iron Throne.
But those yelling about historical inaccuracies or complaining about the mistake need to remember a couple of things...like, for one, since when was Game of Thrones historically accurate?
Does anyone need reminding that we have never actually had dragons on earth (as far as we know)?
You're telling me they had TWO YEARS to put together a decent show and they couldn't even spot the goddamn Starbucks cup in Winterfell??!?! #GameOfThrones pic.twitter.com/8opg7nyydv

The fact that there was a Starbucks cup in tonight's Game of Thrones that no producers or editors noticed throughout multiple cuts merely 1 week after the DP yelled that the show's not too dark to see is truly *chef's kiss*

Still, it's pretty funny to imagine an entire cast and crew not realising that someone has taken a solo trip to Starbucks and forgotten to dispose of the evidence.
