KFC Uses 'Game of Thrones' Hodor in Brilliant Ad, But It's Still Too Soon

Dammit, we just finished crying and you do this.

KFC just posted a new ad on its UK and Ireland YouTube account, and it should really air in the U.S., too. It stars "Game of Thrones" alum Kristian Nairn (Hodor), re-imagining the now famous "Hold the Door" scene from GoT Season 6.

In the "Lunchtime is coming..." video, Nairn works at KFC and is overwhelmed by people rushing in to demand "chicken with fries." Like Hodor on GoT, the words become blurred for him in repetition until they become "chicken with rice." Cue the one dude who actually ordered chicken with rice, leading to the point of the ad -- to promote "Ricebox," adding rice instead of fries.

It's brilliant. But still sad. And too soon for our hearts. It's been just over a year since "The Door" aired as Season 6, Episode 5 on May 22, 2016. "Hold the Door" and "Hodor" immediately entered the pop culture lexicon, and now apparently they're fair game for a chicken ad.

"Game of Thrones" Season 7 premieres Sunday, July 16 at 9 p.m. on HBO. And when it's over, we'll probably have several more characters to cry over.
