It might make it more difficult to appreciate the subtle insults that help make Game of Thrones great, but for reasons unknown to the rest of u,s some folks prefer to surround themselves with dozens of PBR-swilling hipsters when watching HBO's most popular series.

Of course, while it may seem like a thoroughly obnoxious experience, there are some obvious upsides to watching the GoT at the corner bar: you can save on your cable bill, it gives new meaning to the phrase, "Turn on the Game," and best of all - you can film your friends' reactions to shocking scenes, which is what one clever Chicago bartender did during Sunday's episode:

If you didn't catch last night's Game of Thrones, well, sorry for the spoiler, but Oberyn Martell checked out in pretty much the most gruesome fashion imaginable.
