It may be the middle of April, but WINTER IS OFFICIALLY BACK!
Sunday's Season 8 premiere brought with it some major excitement!
"It was the TV fan's Super Bowl on Twitter." That's how Twitter VP of U.S. client solutions Jean-Philippe Maheu referred to the return of Game of Thrones on Sunday. The premiere of the show's eighth and final season was the most-tweeted-about episode of the show ever, with more than 5 million tweets.
"That is roughly 10 times what the most-tweeted show usually gets," said Mahue.
Naturally, brands are out in full force pushing every potential link, and who can blame them? The show's Season 7 finale attracted over 16 million viewers. That's more than the population of New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles combined.
Not wanting to miss out on all the hoopla, Famous Frames is sharing some of our brand tie-ins along with some good ole-fashinoed fan art!
