Unused promotion for Game of Thrones season 2

Being an avid fan of A Song of Ice and Fire, I've had fun pitching marketing ideas for Game of Thrones, both season 1 and 2.  Lot's of ideas are pitched by several designers and artists from several agencies, so I don't get my hopes up that any one will win through, but I thought this one had a chance:

In the second book, the characters are spread out all over Westeros, so I thought it would be cool to show our characters standing on a large, room-sized map of Westeros (perhaps like the map at Dragonstone) at their approximate location.  There would be a series of ads with photos taken from various locations.  All would be of the same group, but focusing on different characters due to the vantage point -Dani from the southeast, Jon from the North, Tyrion from the Southwest, and so on.  Furthermore the photos could correspond to a fly around bumper/commercial for the show.  Well, this one didn't make it through either, so I can share it with you!

  1. I think this was a brilliant idea! Well thought through and it could really grow into a series of posters, I don't see why they didn't take it :/
    True, if somebody has never seen the show or read the books they might be a bit confused by this campaign, but I think it would really appeal to the rest of the audience!
