A BBC breaking news alert was pushed out to smartphone users on June 25 which said that Season 5 of ‘Game Of Thrones’ won’t feature nudity. If that’s not breaking news, we don’t know what is.

Following a test of the smartphone app’s push notification settings, the BBC accidentally released a breaking news alert which said, among other things, that Season 5 of Game Of Thrones wouldn’t have any nudity. We know — SHOCKING.

“NYPD Twitter campaign ‘backfires’ after hashtag hijacked. Push sucks! Pull blows!” the breaking alert said. “BREAKING NEWS No nudity in latest episode of Game of Thrones!!! More BREAKING NEWS IIIIII like testing.”

Oops. Clearly this was done by an IT tech at the BBC with a fabulous sense of humor who hates both pull and push notifications. However, we can’t help but love the tongue-in-cheek Game Of Thrones reference — it’s impossible to imagine news more breaking than there being no nudity in Season 5 of GoT. IT tech at the BBC — who are you?! Your sass is perfect.

The BBC released a statement on their Twitter about the incident:

Season 5 of Game Of Thrones will premiere sometime in 2015, and will take place mainly in Dorne — a place that may just get so hot, women will take their clothes off.

So, HollywoodLifers, did you think the push alert was funny? Would it have been worth a breaking news alert if, indeed, Season 5 of GoT didn’t feature any nudity? Let us know!
