'Game of Thrones' Season 5 Teaser Is Ridiculously, Infuriatingly Short, but We'll Take It (VIDEO)

game of thrones tyrionOMG, people. It's been way too long since the end of season 4!! The wait has been torturous. Winter is definitely here! So now is the time to start gearing up for Game of Thrones season 5! That's right, the show is making headlines today for, wait a moment, you guessed it, that's right ... releasing just FIVE FREAKIN' SECONDS of new footage from the newest season.


Apparently the teaser was released on Tuesday through a brand-new promotional website called ThreeEyedRaven.com. And it was a pain in the ass to be able to watch the teaser at all ... various outlets report that you had to subscribe to receive the video, which could only be watched on your cellphone and only watched once, and you weren't allowed to take any screenshots of it. Crikey.

Of course, because this is the age of the magic of the Internet, a user from Reddit called strongjoe was able to put the footage together on a YouTube clip for all of us who missed the memo about this teaser to see.

Check it out and be prepared to squint as much as possible:

Yes, the general reaction most likely is ... WTF was that?? But sharp-eyed Internet nerds pointed out that if you look hard enough, you'll be able to see Sansa, Tyrion, Cersei peeking out behind a window, perhaps in captivity (dun dun dun), Arya rowing a boat, and a book being shut.

Game of Thrones producers are well known for their conniving ways by releasing trailers and photos teeny bit by teeny bit, and it looks like season 5 will be no different. But we'll keep watching out for all this new stuff anyway like the losers we are! It's okay, embrace it! And let the countdown to season 5 begin!

Could you make out anything in that five-second teaser??
