Angry Birds on the Race Track - March 15, 2012, 10:17 AM



Rovio Entertainment announced today their merchandising and webgame partnership with Finnish Formula 1 star Heikki Kovalainen. Kovalainen will also be sporting a brand new co-branded Angry Birds helmet, which will debut at this weekend’s inaugural Formula 1 race in Melbourne, Australia.

“This is a great partnership on many levels,” said Heikki Kovalainen. “It’s the first time that I’ve partnered with a gaming company, and it fits with my larger focus on partnering with unique brands. As a Finn, I’m also happy to be backing a Finnish company on a global platform. Most importantly, I’m a big Angry Birds fan!”

“We’re so excited to be working with Heikki on this, the first partnership of its kind in F1,” said Harri Koponen, EVP Consumer Products at Rovio Entertainment. “The helmet looks amazing, and we think people are really going to enjoy the webgame and merchandise.”

Martin Anayi of IMG Worldwide worked closely with Mikael Hästbacka of Numea Consulting to bring Heikki and Rovio Entertainment together, based on Heikki’s enthusiasm for supporting Finnish companies looking for an international platform. With Angry Birds being a true online phenomenon, having recently flown through 17mn 'likes' on Facebook alone, a collaboration with Heikki and the Finnish company seemed like a natural fit.

The co-branded merchandise line will be released later this spring with the webgame, which will feature fun Angry Birds game levels with a racing theme in addition to other bespoke content, launching later in the summer.

Angry Birds ...
It cost Rovio about $150-160K USD to develop and had already grossed (just on the video game) in excess of $70 Million. That degree of return on investment and profit margin makes all other game and app makers, mobile and console, look silly by comparison.

I wish they were public. I'd happily put some money into them.
