HBO held off on releasing the first true trailer for the final season of “Game of Thrones,” and it looks like the strategy worked.
The clip was released earlier this week and has reportedly racked up 81 million views across Facebook, Twitter and Youtube in its first 24 hours.
That easily sets a record for HBO, beating the network’s previous holder – the ‘Thrones’ Season 7 trailer, which had a combined 61 million viewers over those three platforms.
The eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones” will premiere Sunday, April 14th.
