Game of Thrones is one of the most talked about television shows of the year, with millions of fans around the world. The first season of the acclaimed epic fantasy has been available in stores since March 6th.

It has been discovered that a replica of President George W. Bush’s head was placed on a spike, covered in blood, and used as a prop during a scene in the 10th and final episode of the first season! It appears in clear view for less than two seconds.

Co-creators Dave Denioff and D.B. Weiss admitted to using the head of the former president, but they said their decision had absolutely nothing to do with politics. The majority of the scenes were shot in Northern Ireland, where obviously one could understand that heads would be in short supply.

A video is included with this article to the left side. You may watch the video for yourself, President Bush’s replica appears at 1:10.
