Angry Birds for Chrome: ‘Mustache is funny’

2 Comments

ED’S NOTE: This post reflects my interest in advertising as a marketing student. No agencies or products are endorsed. The opinions expressed here are mine and in no way reflect the opinions of my employers.

Sometimes I just have to post an ad because I think it’s really funny. If I see an ad during a recording and rewind it three times, there has to be something there: a sharp script, dialogue that I get, a unique look. To be honest, I don’t have a lot to say about the Angry Birds as spokespersons for Google’s (NASDAQ: GOOG) Chrome browser other than to say, yes, Chrome does have “amazing frame-rate capabilities,” and Peter does look angry.
