Freddie the Angry Bird

Is that a bird? Is that a Rock Star?  No…it's a Rock Star Angry Bird!

Angry Birds welcomed another Rock & Roller into its nest this week. Rovio Entertainment has teamed up with Freddie For A Day to make Queen's iconic Freddie Mercury an honorary member of the Angry Birds family.

We think it's a great way to celebrate Freddie’s memory.  The creators of Angry Birds released a very funny and cool all-new animation of Freddie the Angry Bird riding his bicycle to the famous Queen track ‘Bicycle Race’.  

While the animation is fun, there is an important component to Freddie the Angry Bird. This effort is always designed to help raise awareness and money for the Mercury Phoenix Trust, a non-profit focusing on fighting AIDS worldwide.

Fans can soon pick up a limited-edition Freddie Mercury Angry Bird T-shirt from the Angry Birds webstore and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Mercury Phoenix Trust.
