Singapore Drama Ripped Off Game of Thrones' Intro

Posted by Grey Tuesday, November 29, 2011

They say "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." Well, not when it's imitated poorly.

The opening title sequence of Game of Thrones, HBO's critically acclaimed live-action adaptation of George R. R. Martin's best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels, is easily among one of the very best opening title sequences in television history, enhanced by the incredible aesthetics and suitably epic opening theme. So we can probably mark this in "inevitable" department for a pirated attempt on the winner of the Main Title Design honor at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Though we would have admit our surprise that the attempt came from a kung fu drama series produced by the local television monopoly, Mediacorp.

Spotted by sharp-eyed readers at iO9, the award-winning intro was blatantly ripped off by Code of Honor, who clumsily replaced the intricate clockwork sequences with sabers and spears from Chinese martial arts.

Both clips are embedded below for your comparison.

First up, the promotional sequence for Code of Honor, followed by the epic opening title sequence for Game of Thrones.
