No, you are not seeing things. That’s the Kings Anze Kopitar slapping a pig from Angry Birds into a snow drift. What the what?!?
It’s part of a new promotion featuring the Slovenian Stunner alongside some of the biggest app stars in the world: Rovio’s Angry Birds. The creators of one of the most successful mobile app of all time is kicking off Angry Birds Superstars.
Angry Birds Superstars is a run of limited edition prints, with our new superstars doing what they do best, Angry Birds style! A must-have for any NHL or NBA fans… Or Angry Birds fans for that matter!
According to Rovio’s website, you can win this autographed Anze Kopitar photo by tweeting out why YOU (that’s right, YOU) consider yourself an Angry Birds Superstar.

This isn’t the first time Rovio has courted the sports crowd. In 2012, Rovio unveiled Hockey Bird, the official mascot of the 2012 Ice Hockey World Championships. Rovio is a Finnish company, so it makes perfect sense to have them create a mascot for the IIHF. No word if this means Hockey Bird will be coming to an Angry Birds app near you.
You have until Friday, Feb. 8 to tweet why YOU deserve an autographed print of Anze Kopitar, giving one of those dastardly piggies the what for. But beware: you’ll have some serious competition!
