VIDEO: Angry Birds Promoting Chrome Browser

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 14 comments

Google's new commercial for Chrome features the developers of Angry Birds.

This promotional spot for the Google Chrome browser appeared Monday night during a commercial break of Terra Nova on FOX. It features the developers of Angry Birds -- Serdar, Jaakko and an angry-looking Peter -- represented by their in-game counterparts. Naturally Peter talks about the benefits of using Chrome as a developer -- the Chrome Web Store, auto-updates, WebGL, the framerate capabilities -- but eventually gives up after constant interruptions form the other two.

"Are you angry, Peter?" Jaakko asks. "You look angry."

    I hope this will encourage all of those old grannies and other "know-nothings" to move from IE 6 to Chrome.

    I hate that commercial. This month has had some pretty horrible commercials, including a new hamster one for Kia just when I think they can't get any worse.

    What an odd comparison. You are comparing a game that was designed to promote a whole platform to a one hit wonder. Mario at least had variety and was a challenge, not to mention it took more than 2 sittings to beat. Plus it had tremendous spin-off capability with all of the various games Mario is in. Angry birds has little place to go except 3D.. which could be cool.

    nuueI'm so sick of all this 3D garbage.


    I think this is spam. I read an identical post on another article. It's unnecessary in both places.

    I played the birds just to finish, the wife played to get three stars on everything. The woman has alot of patience. The puzzles are fun if you have 15 minutes to waste and don't want to play solitaire and don't have enough time for a zombie killing marathon. The commericals are annoying though.

    So, I had to look up the Kia hamster commercial. Hilarious.
    This was also funny, in a weird way.
    You gotta lighten up a bit. :p

    I don't care about the commercial one way or another, however, Party Rock Anthem continuously gets stuck in my head and now I shuffle everywhere when I hear it >.

    gotta agree. the moment I first saw the hamsters in the first line of commercials, I thought "I don't know what they're advertising yet, but I wouldn't be caught dead with it."

    Angry Birds is okay, but not something I'd switch a browser for.
