Here's Proof That 'Game Of Thrones' Is A Bloodier Version Of 'Shrek'

The two franchises have wayyy more in the common than you think.

"Game of Thrones" and "Shrek" -- one's a TV show and book series, the other's a movie. While one undoubtedly has a whole lot more blood and death than the other (the other has a lot more gas...), the two also share a number of similarities. Mythical creatures, scheming royals and a medieval setting are just a few things that Donkey and Daenerys have in common.

A new Twitter account, @shrekgot, noticed the bizarre similarities between Jaime Lannister and Prince Charming and started posting side-by-side images from the two franchises that are pretty spot on:

We've always thought Oberyn Martell had a little Antonio Banderas thing going on, and @shrekgot proves it. Now if someone can just get Eddie Murphy a Westeros cameo, we'll be set.
