Angry Birds topple Middle East leaders
Friday 01 April 2011
A cartoon video which recounts the unrest in the Middle East using the characters in the popular Angry Birds game and the children's story Three Little Pigs is racking up the views on YouTube.
The video, which has been posted on the YouTube channel of a Russian named Egor Zhgun, had been viewed more than 236,000 times on the video-sharing site as of Wednesday afternoon.
In the video, the egg-stealing green pigs in the original Angry Birds game from Finland's Rovio portray Tunisia's deposed president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, Egypt's ousted leader Hosni Mubarak and Libyan strongman Moamer Kadhafi.
The Angry Birds first take out Ben Ali in his house of straw before moving on to topple Mubarak in a house made to resemble an Egyptian pyramid.
Kadhafi proves a harder nut to crack in his house of stones and survives several barrages of birds before he is finally crushed by a "mighty eagle" in the colors of the United States.
The video can be seen at youtube.com/user/egorzhgun on YouTube.
