I hate to admit it but I’m a little addicted to Angry Birds. I know many people hate the game in all its different iterations – it’s for casual gamers, it sucks, it’s pointless – but I just can’t get enough. I know why this is so, having explored the reasons Angry Birds is so addictive in a previous article, but that hasn’t helped.
Never mind. There are worse things to be addicted to. So I may as well feed my addiction (and possibly yours as well) by sharing the best Angry Birds videos I have seen on the Web over the past few months. These are the ones which feed my addiction, keeping me playing the game long after my bedtime. Not that I have a specified bedtime, you understand.
Angry Birds Theme Cover
We begin with a cover of the Angry Birds theme tune, which is the first aspect of Angry Birds most people experience. Even if you hate the game you have to admit it’s a catchy little number. And when it’s performed on a variety of different instruments by two talented musicians it takes on change life of its own.
The music influences these two to the point they start competing with each other. The only question being which is the pig and which is the bird?
Angry Birds Live
What if Angry Birds was a physical game that could be played out in real life rather than on a screen? Barring making a mess of a farm and generating interest from animal rights campaigners, obviously. T-Mobile decided to find out just how Angry Birds would look if played for real, and this video is the result.
Angry Birds In Real Life
Another attempt to bring Angry Birds into the real world, but with none of the budget and marketing skills of a mobile phone company. Thanks to some nice visual effects this little skit works exceedingly well. This is actually an interactive video with multiple videos and two possible endings. Which is a brilliant, if not a little frustrating, use of YouTube.
Am I showing signs of insanity by admitting I wish I could walk down to my local park and get involved in a real game of Angry Birds? I think I already know the answer to that question.
