I am a huge fan of entertainment franchises...when they are good. Some seem contrived and forced into existence with buckets of cash--this is not the case with Angry Birds. Despite the money poured into this franchise, there has been an organic growth for this franchise that money cannot buy. Hats off to Rovio for finding a cultural pleasure point and not totally killing it.
The first video, an Angry Bird/Star Wars mashup is exciting, but the second, a Bad Piggies interactive cookbook, brilliant! At the end of the post you will see a poll--I would love for you to weigh in!
