Syria’s Tourism Ministry Put Out Video Featuring the Game of Thrones Theme Song
You may have heard recently about the ongoing near-daily horrors in Syria. Just today a hospital was blown up by reported bunker-buster missiles. Which is why it seems like an odd decision for the regime of Bashar al-Assad to try and make a Game of Thrones-themed tourism video.
Yes, because what better way to get across the touristic appeal of your war-torn nation than reminding people of a show wherein the central storylines feature murder and betrayal in the name of ultimate rule and power.
The video ends with the phrase “Aleppo: Will of Life.”
Again, just as a reminder, there is a frightening amount of human suffering happening in Aleppo. A U.N. official released a statement yesterday calling it a “living hell.”
You can watch the strange tourism video above.
