‘Game of Thrones’ Fans Are Freaking Out Over Meme-Inspired ‘Air Arya’ T-Shirt

The latest “Game of Thrones” episode has inspired a meme craze — and of course, someone took things to the next level with a T-shirt.

In Sunday’s “GoT” episode, Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) attacks the Night King. While she has some difficulty with an initial try at killing her opponent, she ultimately defeats him.

Twitter instantly drew comparisons between her superhero-like coordination and the on-court moves of NBA superstar Michael Jordan — with plenty of memes on the subject.

I swear Arya came through like Jordan from the free throw line,” @mpifonifunny wrote.


Many thought Arya’s quick maneuver resembled Michael Jordan’s famous in-air, hand-switching layup from Game 2 of the 1991 NBA Finals.

The internet’s quick reaction included the creation of an Air Arya T-shirt, which features a red silhouette of the character holding a dagger (drawing inspiration from the classic silhouette of Jordan jumping with a basketball). The shirt is available on Rotowear.com for $25.
