PR ladies give “Game of Thrones” the Instagram treatment and another agency creative proposes online via banner ad. Check out these and other tidbits for your amusement.
A Different Kind of Social TV: I love “Game of Thrones” on HBO. Sunday nights at 9pm could not come soon enough now that season two is on air. If you haven’t seen it, you are depriving yourself of some of the best TV programming out there, and if you have seen it and you don’t love it, there is something wrong with you. Seriously. There is nothing not to like about a medieval fantasy world with dragon babies and huge wolves, sexy stuff, violent stuff, intricate power struggles, weird shadowy demonic births. Mallory Blair, co-founder of boutique digital PR firm Small Girls PR, has cleverly managed to incorporate Instagram and Tumblr into the “Game of Thrones” world with her Tumblr “Gram of Thrones.” Blair uses stills from HBO Go to turn into filtered photos via Instagram. She pairs the pictures with Instagram-related captions that the show’s characters might say if they were for some reason obsessed with Instagram. GOT fans, check it out. (via The Daily Dot)
