Eagle-eyed fans went into a frenzy sharing the clip online, with #Starbucks trending immediately after. It then got even worse when it was pointed out that Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss actually appeared in the scene dressed as wildlings.
But responding to the gaffe, which has blown up on social media, Game Of Thrones art director Hauke Richte told Variety it’s not uncommon for items to end up misplaced on set, go unnoticed and appear in the final cuts of movies and TV shows.
Richte continued: ‘Things can get forgotten on set. [The coffee cup error has been] so blown out of proportion [because] it has not happened with Thrones so far.’
