Starting today, fans can access the Night King camera effect by tapping on the camera icon on the top left corner of the Facebook app or by swiping right from their News Feeds to open the Facebook Camera, a new in-app camera/capture experience that is packed with masks, frames, and style effects that users can apply to photos and videos. 

By participating in the fun and becoming the Night King, fans will get a listen to a snippet of  “The Army of the Dead,” which is a never-before-heard song from Game of Thrones composer, Ramin Djawadi. “The full song will first be heard in Sunday’s season finale and is also featured on the Season 7 soundtrack, available today at digital retailers.”

This certainly is a who lot of fun, and we’ve already been playing around with the app making fun little Night King photos. Here’s me as the Night King. Damn, I’m scary looking Night King.
