Everyone knows Angry Birds.

You know Angry Birds, I know Angry Birds, your nan knows Angry Birds. Mind you, she hasn't got all the Golden Eggs yet. What a noob. (She ought to read this, really.)

But do you know how this whole Angry Birds phenomenon began? Let's assume you answered 'no'.

That's because we've put together a super-quick history lesson on Rovio's high-flying birds just for you. So, you know, you can impress your nan.

The video will only take up one minute of your time. But you'll be indebted to me for ever. Maybe.
