On the HBO drama, King's Landing is decorated with the heads of those killed under the despicable King Joffrey as a warning to anyone who dares to cross him. In the tenth episode of Season 1, Joffrey wants to show his bride-to-be Sansa what her father Ned's head looks like on a pike and just two heads down is another familiar face.
On the DVD commentary for "Game of Thrones" Season 1, io9.com noted that the show's creators used George W. Bush's head -- with some "Rock of Ages"-like long locks. But it was only out of necessity, they said.
"George Bush's head appears in a couple beheading scenes," "Game of Thrones" creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss explained with a laugh in the commentary for the Season 1 DVD. "It's not a choice. It's not a political statement. It's just we had to use whatever heads we had around."
In the original clip below, Joffrey proceeds to point out who the rest of the heads belong to ... unfortunately, he neglects to call out the former president. Who would have believed Joffrey was a Democrat?
