The creators of the mobile game Angry Birds have made an animated video of one of its birds dressed up as Freddie Mercury to support HIV research, according to a statement from The Mercury Phoenix Trust, the AIDS charity founded by the surviving members of Queen. The video depicts a yellow triangle-shaped bird dressed as Mercury with a mustache and chest hair wearing a crown and bicycling to the Queen song “Bicycle Race.” It was created in honor of Freddie for a Day, an annual fundraiser for the charity, in which participants dress up as Mercury on his birthday every September 5. A portion of the proceeds from a limited edition Mercury Angry Birds T-shirt will go to the charity. Mercury died of AIDS in 1991.
