Game Of Thrones Starbucks Blunder Made Into A Skyrim Mod
HBO’s Game of Thrones recently saw the series reach its epic conclusion and while the George R.R. Martin-based fantasy certainly went out on a memorable note, there’s several moments fans would surely rather they forgot. One discovery that certainly caught the mocking ire of fans was an infamous Starbucks coffee cup that inexplicably made its way on-screen. The anachronistic mistake has since achieved internet meme status and is now its very own mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Thanks to Skyland modder johnrose81, fans of the Elder Scrolls title can now relive Game of Thrones’ infamous blunder and leave behind their own little cups of Tamriel’s finest brew. According to Nexus, the java-spawning mod replaces each and every tankard in the game with a small Starbucks-themed coffee cup, these familiar containers bearing the altered moniker of “Skyland Coffee.”
“You saw Daenerys Targaryen rocking it, now it’s your turn,” reads the Skyrim mod’s humorous description. “It’s back by popular demand, Skyland Coffee offers all the caffeine needed to rescue a land from Thalmore, Dragons, Skooma Pushers, and Vampires. Replace those dreary tankards for a fresh, clean recyclable coffee cups from your favorite brewer, Skyland Coffee.”
While it’s unfortunate for such a simple slip-up to happen on a show as big as Game of Thrones, it’s nice to see everyone to at least have a little fun with it. This Skyrim mod is surely one of the standouts immortalizing the Game of Thrones mistake, but it appears there may be more where that came from in the near future. Following the finale, fans on social media have already begun heralding the arrival of yet another casual beverage to the realm of Westeros, this time in the form of a misplaced bottle of water.
