*Warning: Game of Thrones spoilers ahead!*
Like almost everyone these days, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is a huge fan of Game of Thrones.
Unlike most of us, however, Rodgers was famous enough to reach out to David Benioff and D.B. Weiss to secure himself a small cameo in the show's penultimate episode.
He's teased his appearance for months now, though many didn't know he was being serious.

But as the episode premiered on Sunday, May 12, Rodgers revealed his cameo was as real as can be.
I hope everyone recognizes what’s at stake tonight in terms of Gifs if Aaron Rodgers kills someone or gets killed.— Big Cat (@Big Cat)1557687965.0
Quickly, Twitter users believed they spotted the all-star quarterback amongst the archers at King's Landing.
