Three Big Pigs

You’ve likely read the articles, seen the footage, and listened to tons of commentary about the Arab revolutions, but never has it been better explained than through the use of the game Angry Birds.


For the two people on the planet who aren’t familiar with Angry Birds, it was originally released as an iPhone game and instantly became the most popular iPhone game ever, selling over 12 million copies. It’s a brilliantly simple and incredibly addictive game that has the player use a slingshot to launch birds at pigs hiding in various structures.


Angry Tweets has released a video titled “Three Big Pigs” which explains the revolutions using Angry Birds style animation and Disney melodies, based mostly on truth and some vision. Instead of the Angry Birds through, the creators used Twitter birds to take down the first two leaders. The third one needed a slightly more powerful feathered animal.


The “Three Big Pigs” are Tunisian ex-president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, Egyptian ex-president Muhammad Hosni Mubarak and Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. The first two have already been ousted, and Gaddafi is currently doing his worst to try to keep his political position.
