It’s pretty clear that Angry Birds has become a serious icon of the times. Games in the Angry Birds franchise have been downloaded over 1 billion times. The merchandising is just incredible – Angry Birds can be found in everything from plush toys to t-shirts to bandages (yes, bandages!), making it one of the single largest social addictions to ever see planet Earth!
