Rovio’s Angry Birds “Freddie For A Day” Celebrating Freddie Mercury
Starting off the week celebrating the memory and birthday (September 5) one my favorite singers/personalities of all time Freddie Mercury! starting today the creators of Angry Birds are releasing an all-new animation of Freddie the Angry Bird riding his bicycle to the famous Queen track “Bicycle Race.” The video will be made available on Rovio’s YouTube channel and Angry Birds Freddie For A Day. I posted the link video below! in addition the Mercury Phoenix Trust, and Angry Birds in partnership with Bravado will be releasing a limited-edition Freddie Mercury Angry Bird T-shirt. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Mercury Phoenix Trust. Freddie Mercury would have been a mere 66 years old this week.
Also today a special Freddie For A Day fundraising evening hosted by Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor at which, for the second year, friends and celebs will gather in London at the Savoy in Freddie’s honor, to remember him and raise funds for the Mercury Phoenix Trust – Fighting Aids Worldwide.
On the partnership Rovio CMO Peter Vesterbacka said,
“‘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. 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.”
