Sneaky teacher threatens students with Game of Thrones spoilers!

25 March 2014, 08:54

Los Angeles - A teacher threatened his students with TV spoilers.

A mathematics teacher at a school in Belgium told his disruptive class that if they didn't start to behave he would reveal the names of characters that had been killed off in the third season of the popular series Game of Thrones.

Desperate for the teenagers to take his lesson seriously, he asked how many of them watch the series - which is based on the books by George R. R. Martin - and when the majority of them raised their hands he seized the opportunity to shut them up.

When asked what he said to the students, he told the Nieuwsblad newspaper: "I said, 'Well, I've read all the books. If there is too much noise, I will write the names of the dead on the board.'"

The pupils are then said to have gone back to work in silence in order to avoid their punishment.

Game of Thrones on DStv:

Thanks to a partnership between DStv and HBO, DStv Premium subscribers will be able to catch up on all three seasons of Game of Thrones, in preparation for the premier of Season 4 on M-Net.

Exclusively available to owners of a DStv Explora, Seasons 1 to 3 of Game of Thrones will be offered as three complete Box Sets on DStv Catch Up – starting with Season 1 on Friday, 14 March, followed by Season 2 on Friday, 21 March and Season 3 on Friday, 28 March.
