Remember the 'Game of Thrones' coffee cup drama? 'The Mandalorian' now has its own


Hard as they try, TV show producers seem to be no match for eagle-eyed fans, just waiting for a gaffe they can make common knowledge on social media.

The latest victim is "The Mandalorian," which featured a scene in which a man sporting a t-shirt and jeans appears in the frame as characters in the forefront of the shot prepare for battle.

Twitter users everywhere are lovingly calling the crew member "Jeans Guy."

And while one could argue that the man is a simple bystander to the ongoings on-screen, his outfit proves otherwise, as he's ill-clad for "The Mandalorian" universe.

The snafu appears in Season 2's fourth episode, "The Siege," directed by Carl Weathers.

Many are comparing the incident to the infamous "Game of Thrones" coffee cup that appeared on a table right beside Daenerys. The coffee cup was the subject of many memes and jabs at the series after making its "GoT" debut in Season 8.

The cup was swiftly removed from the scene using digital technology. According to Entertainment Weekly, the t-shirt-and-jeans-guy from the most recent episode of "The Mandalorian" will likely also disappear with the help of some modern digital magic.

Previously, "Game of Thrones" showrunner Dan Weiss has said that gaffes like these are actually rampant in cinematic history - fans have just gotten better at clocking them.

"I'd seen that shot one thousand times and we're always looking at their faces or how the shot sat with the shots on either side of it," he said. "I felt like we were the participants in a psychology experiment, like where you don't see the gorillas running around in the background because you're counting the basketballs."

"Every production that's ever existed had things like this," he continued. "You can see a crew member in 'Braveheart'; there's an actor wearing a wristwatch in 'Spartacus.' But now, people can rewind things and everybody is talking to each other in real time. So one person saw the coffee cup, rewound it, and then everybody did."
