Secret 'Angry Birds' code to be found in Fox's 'Rio' Super Bowl spot

Posted on

People who love the video game Angry Birds can drive people who love football crazy on Sunday by pausing during the Super Bowl commercial for Fox’s animated feathered-friends comedy Rio and scanning for a secret code.

The code can be found on a single frame during the ad, and can be entered in the game to unlock a special level on Rovio’s hit game. In turn, that level will lead the player to a sweepstakes entry to attend the film’s world premiere in Rio de Janeiro on March 22.

The 3-D animated film is about a pet macaw named Blu (voiced by The Social Network‘s Jesse Eisenberg) who is part of a gravely endangered species and is brought to the Brazilian beach city to breed with Jewel (Anne Hathaway) who only wants to escape captivity.
