Hey, have you heard of this show? It’s called Game of Thrones, and loads of people watch it, but what’s remarkable is that loads of people post, talk, tweet, and post YouTube videos about it. New data from YouTube shows the most popular Game of Thrones houses, characters, and online videos as we prepare for Season 7 to smash every record.
Season 6 had the highest average of video uploads, with the finale “The Winds of Winter” at an all-time high. This is consistent with Season 6 being the most tweeted about season in the show’s history, and the most tweeted about show of 2016 overall.
Season 3’s The Rains of Castamere” remains one of the show’s most shocking to date, and many filmed their friends reacting live to the events of the Red Wedding in 2013:
My Wife’s “Game of Thrones” Red Wedding Reaction – 985,000 views
Red Wedding Freakout – 850,000 views
Diehard Stark fan’s reaction to “The Rains of Castamere” – 110,151 views
The most popular Westeros house on YouTube was house Targaryen, matching top character Daenerys. The Lannisters come second, with Tyrion, Cersei, and Jaime all in the top 10 characters, and House Stark at third with three (and a half) members in the top 10.
Game of Thrones returns July 16.
