What Does George R. R. Martin Need to Finish Writing ‘Game of Thrones’? More George R. R. Martins

“A Song of Ice and Fire” books are long, they’re laboriously detailed, and if George R. R. Martin dies before the series is finished, it will be the greatest tragedy of modern fantasy storytelling. It is known.

In fact, it’s so widely known that putting pressure on Martin to stop doing any activities other than ones that lead to the completion of the books has become a loud, necessary cri de coeur for fans. Not only is it accepted, it’s a fan’s duty – when he or she sees Martin at a Game of Thrones red carpet or at a signing event – to tell him to get the fuck back to work.

Fortunately, a filmmaking team headed by Andy Young (of Keith and Heath fame) has taken inspiration from Multiplicity to toy with the cultural frustration in a fun, inventive way. As a bonus, Zero Charisma’s Sam Eidson plays Martin (and all of his glorious personalities) in this sappy trailer imagining a world where clones help Martin speak at a book store and continue detailing what Tyrion breaks his fast on at the same time.

Ladies and gentlemen, here’s Multiplicity 2: Game of Clones.
