You know how to connect to millennials? Drop a Game Of Thrones reference in the middle of your political analogy. That’s marketing 101 in the world of 2017.
For example, let’s say you have absolutely zero idea how politics or government work, but you had in depth knowledge of Game Of Thrones. I’d tell you that Anthony Scaramucci is like Littlefinger only he didn’t last as long. I’d tell you that Ned Stark was like Bernie Sanders, an honorable man and clearly the right choice to lead the people, but was ultimately conspired against by his enemies. And of course, President Trump would be akin to Joffery. See, you’re starting to get it now, right?
Well, Al Gore, former Vice President, and Presidential candidate got that too, so he used one of the most memorable episodes of Game Of Thrones to describe the current state of the White House.
“I think in the process, the president has been isolating himself from the rest of the country. You see Republicans in the House and Senate now moving to separate themselves in increasing numbers from the dysfunction and distractions, constant distractions in the White House. Last week somebody said it was like the ‘Red Wedding’ in ‘Game of Thrones’,” Gore said.
Now that I mention it, I’m curious as to why Gore doesn’t apply this strategy to his climate change campaign. If he started making comparisons between the effects of Global Warming and the Long Night, maybe people would start to realize how deep of shit we’re actually going to be in.
