You’ve probably seen the video blowing up all over the internet by now, but for those that haven’t it features Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner on a jumbotron at a New York Rangers game on Tuesday night.
Incase you’re wondering why the video at hand became such an internet sensation, it’s because of what Turner decided to do when put on the spot. No cheesy lovey-dovey kiss with fiancé Joe Jonas or an awkward little wave, but rather an act that would go down in the books as forever iconic in the history of jumbotron moments. Sophie Turner chose to stay true to her roots and go down the ~relatable~ path, so naturally, she did a cheeky dab and chugged a glass of red wine whilst holding her Juul in the other hand. Um, we know who our queen is. Cersei who? Khaleesi who?
Obviously top content like this wouldn’t just remain as a private moment between the folks at Madison Square Garden, it went viral pretty quickly as excited fans posted videos on Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter. As with any viral moment in pop culture the best part is always the reactions and memes that come afterwards. We’ve included a few of our personal favourites below, but the list is honestly endless!
Sophie actually posted the video to her own personal instagram with a killer caption paying homage to the best family of GoT… the Starks! The North remembers & the Starks send their regards 😉🐺You know you’re iconic when champagnepapi calls you an inspiration…
Other fans especially appreciated her mouth wipe at the end, because we all know thats a classic (and necessary) move after downing a drink.
That mouth wipe at the end there is evidence that Sophie Turner is a class drinker and I respect her even more now for it pic.twitter.com/5VLzvw9tmB

Considering that the final season of Game of Thrones is only three weeks away, it seems like Sophie might have done some unintentional marketing for the show since her name has been trending for the past few days. Could she be a marketing queen as well? Who knows… either way, April 14th can’t come soon enough!
