Red Nose Day: Coldplay Does "Game of Thrones" Musical Parody

"Game of Thrones" castmembers teamed up with Coldplay to deliver a special musical version of HBO's hit series in support of the Red Nose Day telecast on NBC Thursday.

The parody–decidedly less violent and bloody than the source material–featured popular songs with lyrics about the world of Westeros.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, performed "Closer to Home," a ballad about sister-lover Cersei, nephew-son Joffrey and his missing hand.

"Are you thinking about Joffrey, such a spirited lad I was his uncle, I was also his Dad," Coster-Waldau sings. Check out the video above.

"Wild thing, you pull your bow string," castmembers sang along with Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin and the band. 

Emilia Clarke who plays the blond-haired queen Daenerys Targaryen, sang "Rastafarian Targaryen."

In an exclusive online clip teased before the Red Nose Day telecast, Peter Dinklage sang with Coldplay about the numerous character deaths on the show.

"Remember Ned Stark, he was a lot of fun but he didn't make it passed season one," crooned Dinklage, whose character Tyrion Lannister is still "going strong."
