I know I'm not alone in saying that I've definitely spent more time than I'm proud of playing the addictive Angry Birds app, but in all that time I never once thought about the motivations behind the title for the game -- which is exactly what prompted the 'When Angry Birds Get Therapy' video.
Created by Jim Behrie for The Hairpin, the hilarious clip uses stop-motion animation to reveal the secrets of the so-called angry avians. Set to the 1982 slow jam 'All This Love' by El DeBarge, the video shows a therapy session where an Angry Birds character opens up and explains why he is so angry with the pigs and how it relates to his feelings of abandonment as a child.
The tongue-in-cheek (or beak) comedy of the video, along with the soundtrack, makes 'When Angry Birds Get Therapy' my favorite tribute to the popular gaming app that I've seen so far. But now that I've heard from the birds, I'd love to hear what the pigs have to say!
