Winter is here, and so is the Iron Throne.
Game of Thrones fans hanging around downtown Dallas have the chance to take what is theirs, for Instagram at least: A replica Iron Throne now dominates the lobby of AT&T’s corporate headquarters on 208 S Akard St. From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, you can rule the realm — err, snap a picture on it.
AT&T, which recently acquired HBO's parent company Time Warner, says the world’s pointiest chair arrived at the beginning of this year and will remain at least through March 30 — just before Game of Thrones airs its eighth and final season in April (*Sob.*)
Why did AT&T’s headquarters snag the seat of Westerosi power? “The dragons were busy. So we brought the next best thing,” a spokeswoman for AT&T said. “We’re excited for fans to experience a piece of King’s Landing in Dallas.”
You’ll have to walk past some construction to reach the lobby.
This isn’t the first time the throne has invaded Dallas — there were replicas at GoT-themed Rangers games as well as series composer Ramin Djawadi’s Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience in September — but this will be its longest visit.
AT&T reps say cosplay within reason is welcome.
So grab your goblet, bring your Unsullied and unleash your inner Khaleesi. I did.
