The Brits are very hopeful about "Game of Thrones." So much so that they have replaced the face of Obama in the iconic "Hope" poster with that of Tyrion Lannister, the HBO drama's famous dwarf, played by Peter Dinklage.

About a week ago, the red, white, and blue stenciled image of the Emmy Award-winning actor -- with the word "(P)IMP" (a play on the character's nickname "Imp") in place of "Hope" -- popped up on the side of a building on London's Herbrand street. It was reportedly digitally superimposed using a popular editing tool.

Given the massive popularity of "Game of Thrones," it's no surprise that the image quickly went viral.

Even "Star Trek" star George Takei fell for the picture, posting it on his Facebook page this weekend, with the caption, "Greatness comes in all sizes."

During the 2008 presidential campaign, the Obama "Hope" poster was designed by artist Shepard Fairey, based on a photo taken by Associated Press photographer Mannie Garcia. The image became one of the most iconic images from the campaign.
