From smartphones to the movie big screen to Donks, Angry Birds has taken the world by storm in the last couple of years. Developed by Finnish company Rovio Mobile, Angry Birds is now finding its way onto the helmet of F1 racer Heikki Kovalainen.

The Finnish racer unveiled his all-red helmet sporting the infamous red Angry Bird on it. “The helmet looks amazing,” said Rovio’s Harri Koponen. Yeah, we couldn’t say it any better. So how long will it take for one of Kovalainen’s competitors to sport the green pig on their helmet?

If you thought the Facebook Donk was the ultimate internet homage, then you’ve clearly underestimated the laughably tasteless creativity of the Donk community. The uber-popular Angry Birds smart phone app has made its way into an Internet Google Chrome-browser friendly experience, the successful Rio movie, and now apparently into the donk crowd.

Along with the Angry Birds screen image on the hood, this boxy Chevy gets some pause buttons on the fenders and while it’s hard to see from the photos, behind each of those massive 24-inch wheels are covers that feature the famous birds themselves.

We can’t help but wonder what’s next. A Farmville-themed Donk? Cake Story?
