Just when we thought we could collectively move on.
PC modders have managed to extend Skyrim’s cultural relevancy yet again with a not-so-subtle nod to the famed Game of Thrones coffee mishap.
In case you missed it – though that seems nearly impossible considering it’s been one of the most talked about pop culture goofs of the past year – someone on the Game of Thrones production team accidentally left a coffee cup on set during a shoot for episode 4 of the fantasy epic’s final season.
The error in the Game of Thrones episode has since been corrected, but the initial response on social media was immediate and all-consuming, with even HBO and Starbucks getting in on the fun. Now, the Skyrim modder JohnRose18 has added the infamous latte into Bethesda’s 2011 open-world adventure (Skyrim also came out in 2013, 2016, 2017, and 2018, but this mod only works on the PC version).
Dubbed “Skyland Coffee,” the mod replaces in-game tankards and mugs with “clean recyclable coffee cups from your favorite brewer, Skyland Coffee.”
What do you think of the addition of corporate coffee culture to the realms of Tamriel?

JR is IGN’s Senior Editor of Features and really hopes they figure out how to port this mod to the Alexa version of Skyrim. He stole that joke from Jonathon Dornbush, and you should scold him for it on Twitter.
