Angry Birds Honors Freddie Mercury’s Birthday Through Youtube Short

Angry Birds Honors Freddie Mercury's Birthday Through Youtube Short

It seems like an odd choice, as many Angry Birds fans are too young to remember Queen in their heyday, but developer Rovio has seen it fit to celebrate the birthday of deceased Queen frontman Freddie Mercury through a new animated Angry Birds short that uses the famous Queen ditty “Bicycle Race.”



The Angry Birds “Bicycle Race” video was produced in order to raise awareness for the special Freddie For a Day fundraising evening hosted by Queen band members Brian May and Roger Taylor, which raises funds for the Mercury Pheonix Trust, which helps fight AIDS worldwide in Freddie Mercury’s honor.

“Freddie for a Day is such a great way to honor Freddie’s fun and flamboyant spirit while delivering an important message, and we’re delighted to be supporting them in our own Angry Birds style,” said Peter Vesterbacka, CMO of Rovio told The Hollywood Reporter. “Queen’s music has endured for a reason, because its creativity and contagious fun appeals to fans of all ages, and we’re happy to help keep Freddie’s memory and music alive for new generations of fans.”
