Huge Angry Birds stunt takes place at Seattle’s Space Needle

Finally, some news of an ornithological variety.
On Thursday, a 35-foot Angry Bird was hung from Seattle's 605-foot tall Space Needle, to promote the launch of Angry Birds Space on the same day.
T-Mobile sponsored the effort, where a 300-foot long slingshot pointing skywards had in its pouch a giant Red Bird. The stunt was a huge recreation of the method used in the game to sling the perpetually irate fowl.
Fans were invited by Rovio to the famous landmark in Seattle, Washington to play the new game and win prizes.
You may remember the recent example we featured where Rovio (the developers of the Angry Birds franchise) had a NASA astronaut introduce the game from the International Space Station.
