This amazing video was uploaded by vanity fair, where they re-imagine the home of the world’s most hi-tech companies as a magnum opus for the George R R Martin created the universe of Westeros.
This video is a spoof of the opening credits of the cult hit HBO series Game of thrones which also very appropriately covers all the basic elements of this mythical kingdom in its true spirit.
In the dark times following the great crash, a wasteland arose in Silicon Valley. Soon the Valley came to be dominated by “broad broadband bandits” determined to wipe each other from this plane of existence.
On their heels came tech companies eager to take on all comers. On one side of the Valley, rose two gods from the quads of Stanford, who at least used to believe in the idea “don’t be evil.” On the other side sits a mysterious figure in black whose specter looms large over a highly futuristic camp. And look out for the “impetuous young warlord hellbent on nothing less than collecting his enemies’ faces …in a book.”
But they are not alone in their drive to conquer the online world. There’s an alliance of “upstart startups” gathering together and they will not rest until “every last status is shared.” Dark times indeed.
Whosoever has brainstormed and thought of this beautiful co-relation deserves a big pat on the back and a million thanks to Time for delivering such posts that further inspire bloggers like me to push the horizon of creativity few notches higher.
