Freddie Mercury becomes an Angry Bird
Published Monday, 03 September 2012
The brains behind the Angry Birds video game phenomenon have turned late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury into a feathered king as part of a charity awareness campaign.
Game makers at Rovio posted the short clip of their Freddie Mercury Angry Bird, wearing a crown and being cycled around by feathered fans on YouTube on Monday, ahead of the singer's birthday on 5 September.
Queen's Bicycle Race is played during the animated skit, which was created to highlight the third annual fundraiser Freddie for a Day, which benefits the Mercury Phoenix Trust's work towards AIDS research.
