It Wasn’t Me!

In case you missed it, a Starbucks cup was apparently “overlooked” during filming of an episode of the famous series Game of Thrones. All the actors are currently passing the (Star)buck for this blunder, the blame for which should perhaps more fairly be laid at the door of stage managers or script supervisors.

Still, it’s worth remembering that this kind of incident happens quite a lot in the world of film and TV, and the magic of the seventh art is quite capable of erasing the anachronistic intrusion during postproduction … the question currently being asked in specialist circles is: was it actually a huge publicity stunt for the American takeaway coffee giant? For the actors accused of being negligent, there’s just one clear answer: it wasn’t me!
