Eagles Week 1 Splash Cartoon and Angry Birds Facebook Game

Let’s get cartoony on your ass.

First up, the (always entertaining) Eagles Week 1 splash cartoon. Each week, the Birds roll out a cartoon in anticipation of the upcoming game. Sometimes they’re lame, sometimes delightfully fun. This week’s? A campaign theme. We’ll give it a 6 out of 10.

You can play the new game on Facebook right here. A new level will be available the day after each game. Synergy, baby! Synergy.

    Are billion-dollar corporations actually proud of this junior high tripe?
