Angry Birds Libya Edition


As a question of taste it's a tad controversial. As a lesson for the Angry Birds generation it may be worryingly successful.

Animators have taken to the conflict in the Middle East with their Angry Birds brush, depicting the problems in a pigs versus egg layers manner.

Angry Birds, the smash hit game that you pretend you don't have on your iPhone, has gripped the internet since its launch in December 2009, but usually the viral tomfoolery has been reserved for giant cakes, mock movie trailers and faux peace treaties.

But this time YouTube videomakers have gone all political in their viral-ity. The concern, of course, is that some may base their entire understanding of the troubles on this here display of e-silly buggers. Mildly amusung seeing Gaddafi as a green pig, mind you!
