Freddie Mercury gets 'Angry Birds' makeover - video

By
Freddie Mercury has been given the Angry Birds treatment as part of a charity endeavour.

Game developer Rovio has teamed up with the Freddie For A Day HIV and AIDS charity to produce a short video of the late Queen singer as one of the disgruntled avians.



"Freddie For A Day and Rovio Entertainment are proud to announce a unique and innovative partnership that sees the most iconic Rock'n'Roll frontman of all time, Freddie Mercury, become an honorary member of the Angry Birds family," read a statement on Queen's Facebook page.

The Freddie For A Day charity was set up in 1992. The group organises an annual event to coincide with the singer's birthday on September 5, in which people from around the world are encouraged to dress up as Mercury and raise money through sponsorship.

Rovio previously teamed up with punk rock act Green Day to launch a special edition of Angry Birds featuring the band on Facebook.

Mercury's Barcelona album received a 25th anniversary re-release from Island Records today.
