Angry Birds streak ahead in the Space Race (again) but with 700 million games sold, who's counting?
They never give up! "Angry Birds Space" is back on top of the AdAge Viral Video Chart this week with 5.1 million more views.
That's 30% down on the previous week, but Rovio's campaign is still earning 500,000 views a day, according to Visible Measures. This is the video's fifth appearance on the chart.
The campaign includes 12 spots altogether, and has pulled in 45.6 million views to date from two main traffic drivers.
The first seen here is the actually-shot-in-space trailer with a NASA scientist's physics demonstration.
This says Adweek, " has struck a viral chord in online audiences and somehow managed to make physics relevant to kids."
The second -- and most viewed -- is an animated trailer that depicts just how the characters found their way into orbit. It is getting more than 200,000 views a day on its own.
The $0.99 game has now been downloaded 700 million times so far.
