English swimmers were surprised this week to find a giant dragon's skull washed up on a beach in Dorset.

The skull was found on the region's Jurassic coast, known for dinosaur fossil findings.

Of course dragons likely didn't exist and this was all a PR student by a UK television streaming service to promote the new season of Game of Thrones.

BlinkBox worked for months to create the giant skull they claim.

The stunt was inspired by the scene in the show in which Arya Stark finds a dragon skull in the dungeons of King's Landing (for those GOT viewers out there).
