The Kardashians have done it all. The socialites of Keeping Up With the Kardashians fame have a social media following that would be a match for most (real) celebrities in Hollywood. A testimony to this is the fact that the name Kim Kardashian is one of the biggest brands out there.
But even they need to cash in on the opportunities to improve their social standing. And they often have to latch onto opportunities to exploit the hype. And they did just that recently.
The Kardashians feature in a parody of House of the Dragon
The Kardashians did a parody sketch. Yes, you heard that right. The reality show stars featured in a parody of HBO’s House of the Dragon in The Late Late Show with James Corden. The result of the synthesis? We have The Targashians. Cool name, at least!
And the whole Kardashian family pitched in with the sketch. Kim Kardashian took center stage in the show. Her character was inspired by the much-raved about prince, Daemon Targaryen (played in the show by Matt Smith). Corden was opposite her playing the role of the King, taking on the name Keith.
The best moment of the show goes to…
And naturally, the sketch had a lot of worthwhile moments. But the best moment came when Kim tried to offer her brother a smoothie in return for peace. But her brother was not going to fall for her tricks easily.
He tactfully asked his guard to first inspect whether the smoothie was poisoned or not. And when the guard dropped dead, her brother knew that it was time to call the true boss – their mom. He immediately cried, “Mom!” and ran off.
Enter Kris Jenner, speaking of her “sensitive boy”. The momager was at her devilish best again. And fans wondered whose role was she essaying. A lot of people thought that she would have been the ideal fit to play the cunning Littlefinger. No one can question the fans, her actions warrant such a reaction.
Kim Kardashian said in the parody, “I run the armored shapewear line, the grayscale cosmetics company, dungeon reform, what else am I forgetting? Oh, body butter.”
The other members of the Kardashians also played an important role, though it remains questionable what role Kylie Jenner had to play.
But it remains to be seen how the parody will progress. Fans of The Kardashians, House of the Dragon, and now ‘The Targashians’ would definitely want to see the parody prosper. It is one tolerably decent thing that the Kardashians have ever offered.
House of the Dragon is currently streaming on HBO Max.
