Hodor holds the line at KFC
Hodor is definitely one of the most beloved characters in Game of Thrones history and the fact that his name was actually derived from Hold the Door, the final order to him by Meera Reed to buy time for herself and Bran to escape the Weirwoods way back in Season 6 is one of the most memorable deaths in the series.
In one of KFC’s ads, they tap into the hype and depicts how Hodor, portrayed by actor Kristian Nairn, devised a new item on the menu because he was swarmed by customers ordering the same thing.
In the ad, Nairn plays a cashier at a local KFC branch and is met with customers clamoring for the same thing – chicken and fries. After hearing the phrase in multiples, he repeats it to himself over and over again until he comes up with KFC’s chicken and rice combo. Pretty cool backstory huh? (ANGEL ONG)
