On Game of Thrones, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is pretty good at pushing kids out of windows and passionately kissing his on-screen sister, but take him out of Westeros and dude's got issues. With kissing at least — we hope he doesn’t go around doing that first thing.

The actor best known for playing Jaime Lannister on the hit HBO show pairs with Community and Mad Men standout Alison Brie in a new Apple TV ad. In the 60-second spot, the two sit in a trailer on the set of an unnamed movie project, and are rehearsing an important kiss. But Brie, who looks to be playing a nurse to Coster-Waldau's injured soldier, isn't feeling it, and enlists Apple TV to help find out what's missing. Brie asks Siri to find a scene in 2013's 1,000 Times Good Night where Coster-Waldau plants one on Juliette Binoche. When that isn't enough, she tries to search for an example from Game of Thrones.

Not wanting a scene featuring him and his TV twin to be the poster-kiss of authenticity, Coster-Waldau interrupts and asks Siri to open Apple Music and find something by R&B singer Jeremih. Awkward crooning ensues and Brie cuts him off, saying "we're good… we're overthinking it." Watch the ad below:
