I’ll admit that the meme generator over at StraightOuttaSomewhere.com got old pretty quickly, with everyone on social media posting the pictures over a period of a few days. While certainly a clever marketing move to get people interested in the Straight Outta Compton biopic, it felt a little forced, like most attempts at making something a meme.
However, Game of Thrones fansite Winter Is Coming came up with a clever use of the site, asking its users to tweet funny images from the popular TV show in the tool. For GoT fans, the results are quite comical, and it just goes to show that even forced meme tools used for the soulless purpose of marketing can still lead to something really cool and interesting.

Oh yeah, if you’re behind on the show, there are minor spoilers to follow.
