There are two ways to know that you’ve made it in pop culture. One is to be parodied on Saturday Night Live, and the other is to be parodied or referenced on The Simpsons. HBO’s Game of Thrones now qualifies in the latter.

In this week’s episode of The Simpsons, the opening couch gag featured a parody of the opening title sequence for Game of Thrones, complete with theme music. Check it out.

Now compare it to the original, which won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Main Title Design.

If you’re looking for an equally great parody, I strongly suggest checking out this old school video game of Game of Thrones that is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.

Also, enjoy the latest Game of Thrones season 2 trailer, which is every bit as epic and glorious as the others.

Game of Thrones returns Sunday, April 1 at 9pm on HBO.
