This clip purports to be an “Angry Birds movie trailer,” but it's actually several orders of magnitude more superb than anything you're likely to see in a theatre. You remember NMA TV, right? It's the Taiwanese outfit responsible for rendering current-events like June's Supreme Court ruling on in-game violence into ingeniously mental videos via early-2000s CG. Please just watch this video NMA has made about the Angry Birds phenomenon. It's the best.
There is so much to unpack here, and rather than sully the clip with our dopey interpretation, your thoughts are most welcome. Is your favorite part the clean-shaven Jesus who dejectedly discovers Angry Birds has stolen His thunder? What about that freaky, anthropomorphic Seal Team segment, or the barbed critique of Rovio's eminently-visible love of revenue? This is the sort of thing that PhD theses are written about – but if you can distil your thoughts into comment form, we'd love to hear them. Now if you'll excuse us, we have a video to rewatch.
