The Netflix live-action series The Witcher, starring Henry Cavill, dropped on Friday, and it appears the best thing to come out of it was a song.
During an interview with Turkish magazine Episode, The Witcher series composers Sonya Belousova and Giona Ostinelli revealed the titles of several pieces performed by the character Jaskier, the strumming bard. One composition, “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher,” from the end of episode two, is a certified slapper. It’s got catchy lyrics and a big breakdown that people are loving.
"Toss a coin to your Witcher" is the 🔥 song we needed to end 2019. Everyone needs a bard in life— Mr. Miller3🐺 (@eddragen23) December 21, 2019
The tune was made available on SoundCloud and has been streamed 147,000 times in three weeks, with YouTube reuploads putting on another 2 million views in the period.
Of course, the bard’s jam has made the rounds in the meme-iverse.
Most things can be made awesome when Rickey Thompson is shown dancing to them. “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher” is no exception.
