Heikki Kovalainen’s Angry Birds F1 Helmet Is Ridiculously Awesome
Inveterate pig-foiling time-spender Angry Birds is taking a victory lap after something like a trillion sales by sponsoring Finnish driver Heikki Kovalainen in the world’s premier racing series. What does Angry Birds get out of it? The greatest Formula 1 helmet in the history of helmets.
Kovalainen will try to break down the defenses of other drivers in this season’s F1 championship behind the wheel of the newly renamed Caterham F1 car.
Popping out of that green-and-yellow car will be this amazing bright red crash helmet that looks like an angry peering over the cockpit for swine-hunting. It even has Heikki’s name in the Angry Birds font on the side of the helmet.
Technically, Angry Birds creator Rovio Entertainment is the sponsor, but they’re smartly leading with their most mischievous and well-known brand.
Jason and Tommy are tasked with delivering the Queen Mum’s famed Fabergé egg collection to a museum in Philadelphia. Only when they get to America, they find the eggs are gone. A team of highly-trained femme fatale art thieves have stolen the case the eggs were transported in, only to discover another team of swine-masked bandits has made off with the actual prize.
These so-called “American birds” aren’t just going to sit back, and let someone else get all the glory and gold. They’re smart. They’re sexy. And now, these birds are angry.
From the creators of God of War (Indie Movie), The Legend of Zelda (1987), and Inglourious Plummers comes the next epic of blockbuster proportions: Angry Birds.
