This Shot Is Brilliant is a copypasta based off a tweet by a Twitter user praising a shot from the Game of Thrones finale in which the dragon Drogon appears and spreads its wings behind Daenerys Targaryen, making it briefly appear as though the wings are hers. Twitter users took the text of the tweet and added humorous images.
On May 20th, 2019, following the Game of Thrones finale, Twitter user @jhill1191 tweeted in praise a shot in which Drogon's wings appear behind Daenerys Targaryen, "This shot is brilliant and should be shown in any film study class #GameofThrones." The tweet gained over 4,400 retweets and 19,000 likes (shown below).
Twitter users responded to the tweet by arguing it was not as impressive a shot as the tweet made it out to be.

User @mackenzynj sarcastically tweeted "woah, it’s almost like….she’s the dragon," gaining over 690 likes (shown below, middle). User @haremetal1 joked "It took 16 months to get that shot because dragons don't normally do that" (shown below, right).
