Finland’s two biggest exports are Nokia phones and casual game Angry Birds. Here, the two combine for a popular-as-hell live tournament that brings this shopping mall to a stand-still.
Seriously, if you ever needed proof of just how popular this game is with regular folk, look at the crowds being pulled here. And yes, it’s in Finland, which I’m sure has a special affinity with the game, but I bet there are plenty of places in the world, from London to New York to Sydney, where you could just as easily get people going “oh my GOD a live Angry Birds tournament”.
This particular tournament, in Helsinki, was the final of a competition that was held all over Finland. The winner scored a trip for two to Hollywood, some phones, an Angry Birds certificate and a hug from a Finnish girl.
