Angry Birds. Everyone in this house knows of Angry Birds. One of us was at one time an obsessive fan of Angry Birds and did little else but play it all the time. We won’t be mentioning names. Now, there are Angry Birds stuffed animals for your enjoyment – www.ismashphone.com/2010/12/how-to-milk-a-franchise-angry-birds-plush-toys-now-available.html. Also, if you look at our Halloween blog, you can see that some people around the world even made their own Angry Birds Halloween costumes a few months ago. What is the world coming to?
I just find it funny that a simple game for your phone can have this much of an impact on the commercialism world. I can’t think of another one (correct me if I am wrong) that is this huge. It’s a phone game! A little game that you play when you are waiting for a table at a restaurant, or while waiting to meet a friend for coffee. And these little birds have their own line of stuffed animals? Humorous.
How far will this go? Will there be commercials and cartoons? Will there be Angry Birds stocking stuffers next year for the Christmas holiday? Will they come out with a lego set devoted to the game? The possibilities are endless!
Have a good Thursday! It’s Big Bang Theory night!
