Mascot Drops Coffee And Kneels Before Emilia Clarke At Basketball Game
Most people would probably be a little starstruck if they stumbled upon Emilia Clarke, aka Daenerys Targaryen - and it turns out the same goes for bears.
Clutch the Rocket Bear - the mascot for Houston Rockets basketball team - was ambling along the courtside during their Western Conference Semifinal match against Golden State Warriors when he spotted the actor sitting in the front row.
His breath taken, he dropped his coffee on the floor, before putting his hand/paw to his chest and taking a knee before the Mother of Dragons.
The camera then panned to the 32-year-old, who seemed to laugh with embarrassment and amusement as she buried her head in her hands.
Clutch then kissed Clarke's outstretched hand and the star can be seen thanking him, before doing a sort of queen-like wave.
In fact she wasn't the only queen at the game, which the Rockets lost 113-118, with none other than Queen Bey also in attendance with her husband Jay-Z.
While Clutch and Clarke's encounter is difficult not to enjoy, the mascot's spilt coffee is only the second most talked about Game of Thrones related coffee this week.
In the latest episode, fans spotted an out of place coffee cup on the table during a feast scene. The cup got so much attention on social media that HBO issued the following banterous statement: "The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea."
Despite its positioning in front of Daenerys, Clarke denied responsibility for the gaffe earlier this week.
In a cryptic post on Instagram, she shared a picture her, Peter Dinklage - that's Tyrion Lannister to you and me - and Jason Momoa - Khal Drogo, remember? - on the set.
In the shot, which was presumably taken a few seasons ago, Clarke is holding a paper cup similar to the one seen in the feast scene.
She captioned it: "Did I just stumble upon the truth here?! The cup bearer does not drinketh the Starbucks tea... oh and this ain't a spoiler just a lost wanderer coming home for a mid filming cuppa...."
A little confusing, sure, but it seems she's trying to say 'It waaaazzzzzzn't meee'.
However, co-star Sophie Turner - who plays Sansa Stark - has since pointed the finger squarely at Clarke while appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
The final season of Game of Thrones continues on Sky Atlantic at 2am on Monday 13 May. It then repeats at 9pm for viewers in the UK.
