Debuting on YouTube in 2014, the Practical Folks are James Graessle, Joel Arnold, James A. Janisse and Chelsea Rebecca. They built a steady following by combining their love of pop culture and alcohol, creating the popular Drunk Disney series. With tonight bringing the hotly awaited return of Game of Thrones, season 7 to HBO, the Practical Folks have a series of videos we think you’ll enjoy as we all prep for GOT. Their series “Power Hour” are a set of Game of Thrones parodies starring Rebecca as Queen Cersei and Janisse as Littlefinger, and featuring the other Practical Folks as guests from all across the seven kingdoms of Westeros.
Check out the Trailer and Episode 1 videos below.
In Episode 1, Cersei and Littlefinger do a wine tasting, and the two comedians hilarious riff on their GOT characters, including Lord Baelish’s penchant for over-talking and over analyzing everything while Cersei talks down and belittles him at every turn. As Janisse emphasizes the importance of smelling the wine, Rebecca chugs the first glass. “I detect notes of fruit,” he says. Her no nonsense reply, “Yes, grapes.” When he introduces another wine given generously by House Tyrell, she covers her glass, “Hate it, dreadful.”
In the trailer video you see clips of the other episodes they have up on their channel including guest spots from the other Practical Folks co-starring as Oberyn Martell, Renly Baratheon, and more. They drink, they banter, and their “News from the Realm” segments reminded me of SNL’s Weekend Update. And check out that retro-80s score! The Power Hour videos are binge-worthy content, the 11 videos in the series average about 3-4 minutes each. If you’re a Game of Thrones fan just waiting till tonight, then spend the afternoon getting ready and whetting your appetite with some wine and the Practical Folks on YouTube. They currently have over 41,000 subscribers, so check out the videos, subscribe and browse the rest of their channel for more hilarious videos.
