Rovio Entertainment, the makers of the worldwide hit Angry Birds, has joined with Freddie For a Day to release a new video featuring Freddie Mercury as one of the Angry Birds.
Rovio has also released a special limited edition T-Shirt of the Mercury Angry Bird with proceeds going to the Mercury Phoenix Trust.
Peter Vesterbacka, CMO of Rovio, 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.'
Also on Monday, Brian May and Roger Taylor are holding their second annual fundraising event at the Savoy in London to raise funds for the Mercury Phoenix Trust: Fighting AIDS Worldwide.
