Game of Thrones is the most popular show on television, so it’s not too surprising that the Pirates would fashion their lineup introductions after the show’s iconic opening sequence. But what is a bit surprising is the fact that it turned out this well.

The video does an amazing job of turning Pittsburgh into Westeros. You’ve never been this excited to see John Jaso’s face pop up.

The video is the work of Jason Cauveren, a graphic designer from Kansas City.
