Actor Brian Fortune decided to wish his son happy birthday in a truly unique fashion: by enlisting the help of the Night’s Watch from Game of Thrones.

Fortune plays Othell Yarwyck, a senior member of the Night’s Watch, on the HBO fantasy drama. This means he spends a lot of time waiting around on set with actors like Kit Harington and John Bradley-West (Samwell Tarly). So he asked the men of the Night’s Watch—still in costume, and mostly in character as well—to wish his son Kevin a happy birthday.

If only every birthday wish could be as badass as this one.
