Jon Snow might be good with a sword fighting white walkers in HBO's Game of Thrones, but it turns out he's not a very good dinner guest.
In this skit for Late Night with Seth Meyers, Meyers invites Jon Snow (portrayed by actor Kit Harington) to a dinner party, and the results lead to some very awkward conversation for Snow, who, as we understand, knows nothing.
The skit begins with dinner guests discussing the weather, so we already know what Snow's contribution to the conversation will be.
"Winter is coming," says Snow, several times.
After some awkward eye rolling and throat clearing, the light conversation turns darker when guests ask Jon about his life, including his family. Of course, Jon is honest, admitting that he is a bastard and never knew his mother.
And, of course, someone asks about Jon's father, who he talks about with great pride. At least until he gets to the part where his father's head got cut off. Ouch. And his brother? Brutally murdered at his own wedding. Double ouch.
Watch the hilarious result of Snow's first dinner party below:
For those rare few unfamiliar with HBO's Game of Thrones series, Snow is a character that has led a grim life (as you can see in the video). It's safe to say that anyone in his shoes might not make a very good conversationalist.
What's even funnier, though, is that Meyers attempts to educate Snow on how to improve his small talk. But things continue to go south when Snow mentions Ygritte, who like almost everyone else he knows, suffered a brutal death.
The clip ends with a game of charades, and of course, the inevitable "you know nothing, Jon Snow" line that has become a catchphrase for the character thanks to its use in both the HBO show and the book series that the show gets it story from, George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire.
Harington appeared in the skit as part of a promotional appearance for the season premiere of the fifth season of HBO's Game of Thrones on April 12.
Meanwhile, George R.R. Martin continues plugging away at the next book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series, hopefully finishing up before the HBO series can spoil its plot. The author recently canceled convention appearances to work on the novel, Winds of Winter, and has released a new excerpt from the book.
