The Space Needle in Seattle, Washington was turned into a giant Angry Birds-themed slingshot recently to promote the release of Rovio Entertainment’s Angry Birds Space game.

More information about the Angry Birds slingshot promotion is available at Rovio’s website.
Rovio Entertainment, the Space Needle and T-Mobile USA celebrated the debut of Angry Birds Space by “launching” Red Bird into the great beyond. Events centered around the Space Needle as workers raised a 300-foot long slingshot with a 35-foot tall Red Bird affixed to the 605 foot-tall tower…
Angry Birds fans were invited to the Space Needle to check out brand new Angry Birds Space gameplay, get Angry Birds Space giveaways, and enjoy Angry Birds Space cupcakes provided by Food Network’s Cupcake Wars finalists.
