Game of Thrones: 'Old Town Road' Comes to King's Landing in Mash-Up Video

Arya in the Game of Thrones episode The Bells

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for that latest episode of Game of Thrones, "The Bells," which aired Sunday on HBO.

In the penultimate Game of Thrones episode "The Bells" Arya appears to be one of the few survivors of Daenerys Targaryen's attack on King's Landing. Thanks to the literal firepower of Drogon, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms has been reduced to ash and rubble. Arya, covered in soot and clearly injured, awakes in a daze, trying to figure out her next move. As luck would have it, a white horse appears in front of her and she rides it out of the city and away from the carnage.

Although music by composer Ramin Djawadi plays as Arya rides off, Twitter user @Julian_Epp posted a video that has an alternate track playing in the background to Arya's equestrian adventures.

The video mashes up the end scene from "The Bells" with a remix of rapper Lil Nax X's "Old Town Road " playing in the background. This remix of the song features vocals by Billy Ray Cyrus and is built around a beat sampled from the Nine Inch Nails song "34 Ghosts IV."

While the song and this scene might seem incongruent at first, the mash-up really comes together when Arya starts riding through the smoldering remains of King's Landing as the bass kicks in.

After the country-rap hybrid gained prominence online, "Old Town Road" made international headlines after Billboard controversially removed the song from its Hot Country songs chart. However, that controversy hasn't diminished the song's appeal, as it's currently heading into its sixth week as the most popular song in the country, according to Billboard.

On Lil Nas X's YouTube channel, the video for the song was posted on April 4th 2019 and has been viewed over 125 million times.

While it's not clear where Arya is riding off to, she'll probably maker her final appearance in Game of Thrones' series finale, which is set to air on Sunday night.

Airing Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on HBO, Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister, Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister, Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen, Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark, Maisie Williams as Arya Stark and Kit Harington as Jon Snow.
