Here Is Mariah Carey Slaying a Dragon

If you're a person who uses the internet, you've seen at least one Game of War commercial: You know, the dramatic, Game of Thrones-esque ads that star Kate Upton. The online mobile game has a new face in Mariah Carey, and the latest ad is something of a sight for pop fans.

Watch the clip above, which sees two soldiers struggling in the midst of a mystical battle complete with castles and flying dragons. Struggling, that is, until the elusive chanteuse herself pops up and slays a fire-breathing dragon with her cross bow. And it's all to the tune of Mimi's No. 1 hit "Hero," duh.

In December, it was reported that Carey had signed a seven-figure deal to promote the app for the commercial. If that amount sounds absolutely unfathomable for a mobile game, turns out Game of War currently earns more than $1 million a day from its passionate fanbase. Mariah's asking price was probably chump change in the end.

Whether or not we'll see another ad remains to be seen, but the internet is having a field day with the promo slot, superimposing noted Mariah enemies Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande's heads on the slain dragon.
