Now this is what you call a launch event.

I’m on location right now at Seattle’s Space Needle, where Rovio is planning to mark the launch of “Angry Birds Space” with a stunt that will basically turn the landmark into a giant slingshot, according to a company official. It’s supposed to start around around 10 a.m., although that sounds like an approximate time.

Not sure if this will work, but I’m going to attempt to broadcast from my phone. If the video doesn’t come through below, I’ll post it later.
