The Dudesons, a quad of crazy Finnish stuntment, have broken into Rovio headquarters and hijacked some of the Angry Birds -- including a Rovio iPad that they believe to contain highly confidential information.
"We just mught have all the secrets the birds keep," says Jarno "Jarppi" Leppälä in the video above.

The "birdglary" is part of their grand scheme to bring the Angry Birds along for the ride during the Gumball 3000, an extravagant 3,000-mile road rally that takes place every year.
The Nerdist Channel, which launched in April, will be tracking The Dudesons throughout the week-long event, sharing videos that reveal what the stuntmen are up to. Perhaps even what's really on that Rovio iPad.
Gumball 3000 begins Friday in New York, and the teams will travel on public roads across the country in absurdly expensive sports cars until they get to L.A. on Thursday, May 31. It's not necessarily a race, but more of an adventure.
The Nerdist team is no stranger to a race that encourages having fun -- they'll be hosting the first-ever "Course of the Force" lightsaber relay in July.
In 2011, The Dudesons were awarded the "Spirit of the Gumball" trophy for being the most fun throughout the rally, so this year the stakes are high. (Jukka Nevalainen's pants, on the other hand, not so much.)
What do you think The Dudesons will do with the Angry Birds throughout the rally? Let us know in the comments below.
