One of the most popular characters on Game of Thrones has teamed up with British band Coldplay to create a musical skit mocking the HBO show as part of a star-studded charity event this week.

In a video teaser for Thursday night’s show, Peter Dinklage who plays the charming “imp,” Tyrion Lannister, sings about being one the few surviving original characters.

“Remember Ned Stark? He was a lot of fun, but he didn’t make it past season one,” Dinklage croons. “Robert Barathion was part of that crew, but he never made it to season two.” (see the video below)Ozzy-Osbourne-PhotoCredit-Portal-Focka-CC

The pre-taped song is just one of several “Game of Thrones” tunes to be featured on the live 3-hour telethon airing on NBC May 21. Other cast members will perform alongside Coldplay–all in support of the British comic charity drive, Red Nose Day.

This event marks the first time Red Nose Day has officially raised money in a big way in the United States. Julia Roberts, Liam Neeson, Will Ferrell and Gwyneth Paltrow are performing for the show and might even wear the traditional red foam clown’s noses for which the charity is known. For 30 years, British comedians and entertainers have raised more than a billion dollars to lift children out of poverty.

You can also participate by buying red noses at Walgreens pharmacies for $1 each, with all proceeds going to children’s charities.
