Every "Game of Thrones" fan has seen the epic blooper released at the 2014 Comic Con. From the curses and miss-steps, every blooper scene was gobbled up by "GOT" enthusiasts, but it was the funny dance by Tyrion and Jamie Lannister, played by Peter Dinklage and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, at Tyrion's trial that tickled fans the most.

Nikolaj, during his appearance at the "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" ahead of "Game of Thrones" Season 5 premiere, shared the story behind the duo's epic dancing entrance in a segment called "Tales from Set". The bit, which was supposed to be a prank, made both of them feel ridiculous by the end, reveals "The Other Woman" actor.

In season 4, following the gory death of King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) at his wedding, his outcast of an uncle, Tyrion Lannister, is put on trial by Joffrey's mother, the vindictive Cersei Lannister (Lana Headey). Tyrion is brought to the court in chains and his brother Jamie Lannister – who also happens to be the father of Joffrey via an incestuous relationship with his twin sister Cersei – escorts Tyrion to his trial.

A little ahead of the shooting for the scene, Nikolaj and Peter decided to dance into the courtroom filled with hundreds of extras. The duo went through with their prank and was encouraged by the extras who applauded as the Lannister brothers in full costume danced their way through the long hallway.

The pranksters ended their dance with the monumental jazz-hands, only to be met with pin-drop silence. The first AD then said into the mic, "Yah.. Reset.. Thank You", much to the embarrassment of the duo.
