If there's one good thing that has come from Angry Birds, it's this: Korean politician Jeong Hong created an Angry Birds themed re-election video called "Hong-ry Birds". Geddit? Hong-ry? Hilarious!

Hong is a member of the rightwing incumbent party, the Saenuri Party, which is seeking re-election in the upcoming April 11 election. As website Korea Bang pointed out, in the video Hong is launched at social issues, saying, "I'm doing this all for you...If the citizenry enjoys this, it will help to break up the system!"


I don't know about the good people of South Korea, but I sure enjoyed it. Ha ha.
