The giant inflatable bird is an advertisement for Rovio's new Angry Birds in Space
Dream of playing a real-life game of Angry Birds? You may have missed your chance when they had amassive game in Barcelona, Spain, but this is a pretty cool consolation prize: The makers have turned the Space Needle into a makeshift Angry Birds slingshot, complete with a giant inflatable angry bird.
The large red angry bird is part of a Seattle promotion for the game Angry Birds Space, which was released yesterday for iOS and Android phones, as well as for PC and Mac. The game uses gravitational physics like the original game, but with the addition of large celestial bodies that can attract objects by gravitational force.
Though the bird is connected to the top of the tower by a slingshot, don't get too excited — this bird isn't spacebound. After some initial excitement that a launch was imminent, it's been confirmed that this bird is firmly anchored to the ground with a set of cables.
