I accidentally dropped a YouTube url onto the Unity sidebar instead of dropping it into my text editor and it created a launch icon on the bar.

I deleted this icon from the bar but now when I right click .html files (I'm a web developer), I get the option to open the file with "Game of Thrones Season 4 - Backstage"

Any ideas how I get rid of this?

Search in $HOME/.local/share/applications/ for a .desktop file for "Game of Thrones Season 4 - Backstage" and remove it.
