Rovio Flings Past 1 Billion YouTube Views!

From a struggling company with 15 employees to a staggering 1,000,000,000 (YES! That’s 1 BILLION) views on their YouTube channel, Rovio is celebrating with their very own Harlem Shake. The mind can only imagine what would have happened if Rovio hit this milestone during the “Call Me Maybe” or “Gangnam Style” phase. *shudders*

We know you love our #AngryBirds videos and @YouTube channel, but 1 BILLION views?! THANKS! #HarlemShake (Source: @AngryBirds Twitter)

We wanted to send our heartfelt congratulations to Rovio for this terrific accomplishment. Only two months ago we celebrated our own accomplishment, 100 million YouTube views. Here we are only a couple months later and we’ve already broached 120 million views, so 200 million isn’t far off. This wouldn’t have been possible without those fantastic Finns who green-lighted AngryBirdsNest.

So, from all of us here at AngryBirdsNest, we salute the creators of the world’s most successful mobile franchise — and arguably one of the most successful games — well…EVER.

Congratulations! And here’s to the next billion!

Hearing 1 billion views for Rovio must feel like a punch in the face to Nitendo, Sega, PopCap, and other companies that have youtube accounts.
Congratulations Rovio! All hail the Finnish co!

@bbinmiami fyi, some of these companies make consoles. It’s a completely different genre. It’s like comparing cell phones to cars. Although they do make some games, I see your point. I’m not meaning to trample on your daisies though!

Outstanding accomplishment Rovio! The creativity of the human spirit is endless and this company’s evolution is a good example. The addition of new games and concepts within each game just keeps ABs fresh and exciting to play. Nice work and a job well done.

@ABN admins how about if you guys do harlem shake or gangnam style or any dance when celebrating something ?(ex. ABN birdday, 100.000/50.000 members, etc)

Interesting — Don’t think it really counts unless you dress up in costumes and make a video though!

Until wormhole travel is perfected, that may be difficult. To my knowledge, the only pair of admins to meet face-to-face is BL/Fuji.

Great job, Rovio! I think they’ll make some surprise for their achievement (new update, or new videos perhaps)

Nice job on the billion views! However, I would like to add that it enrages me when people put videos on youtube that show them in stupid costumes making fools of themselves. You would know what I mean if you click this link:

Over billion downloads for Rovio’s games last year, billion views on their You Tube chanall, that’s great success for any company. Congratulations to Rovio’s great team. I have my share of some 100s views, they make really cool videos and my favorite is one they presented in honor of Freddie Mercury.
