This YouTube video of an Angry Birds Christmas light display is the aficionado's answer to festive pigging as airborne avian terrorism is given a yuletide upgrade.

The Finnish game that sees a flock of "angry" birds attack green pigs to retrieve their eggs has been praised for its ability to adapt to just about any console or platform.

This flashing Angry Birds house has taken the concept one step further. The entire homestead has been morphed into an Angry Birds festive playground.

This YouTube clip has been viewed by more than 60,000 people, all eager to take part in the interactive light display. Uploader kumbaric calls revellers to arms with the words "Help! The pigs are trying to ruin Christmas. Grab the sling shot and fire those birds!"

Claiming it is "easier than the iPhone version," the Angry Birds Christmas light display was produced by the same people who created the Guitar Hero Christmas Lights game. Needless to say, this is an American innovation.

Running on two computers and 10 light-o-rama controls that enable mixing light, music and motion, the Angry Bird Christmas light display uses more than 20,000 lights, 16 channel controllers and less than one penny of electricity per game.

Audio is broadcast on 99.1FM, and the controller has a long enough cord for people to play in their cars on the street. Pretty cool. But did you know these Angry Birds Facts?

  1. Pigs were chosen as the birds' opponents because at the time of the game’s creation swine flu was causing widespread panic. Pigs were public enemy number one (or so game developer Rovio Mobile thought)
  2. Rovio receives1m in advertising revenue per month, purely from free Android downloads.
  3. Popularity of angry birds is due is because it is one of the niche "time filler" games which are becoming more and more popular for smartphones.
  4. Peter Vesterbacka, Rovio's official spokesman, has the job title 'Mighty Eagle’.
  5. The game cost less than £70,000 to make.
