We’ve talked before about how insanely popular “Angry Birds” is, but look no further than usually game-suspicious South Korea accepting it to get an idea of what a global cultural phenomenon it is now.
South Korea has a weird relationship with video games. They play them relentlessly, but the government is suspicious of them, so much so that they’ve actually forced kids to stop playing them so much to prevent bullying. How that works isn’t something they’ve bothered to make clear, but we’re sure a bunch of old farts desperate not to tell voters they’re the ones who screwed up their brats are making the right decision.
Anyway, the South Korean Police think differently, and have recruited the Angry Birds to speak about school violence. Although we think a better anti-bullying spokesman would be Casey Heynes.
