On 19 May 2016 McDonald's Singapore sent me a press release showing off the new Super Red Burger and other Angry Birds co-branded items which would be released the following afternoon. This was the day before I was flying to Croatia for a few weeks, and at the time, I didn't have any future trips to Singapore planned over the next month (roughly how long a promo lasts there), so I thought those press photos were as close to the real thing as I would get. As luck would have it, I did make it down to Singapore a couple days after returning to Bangkok and I was lucky enough to give it a try.
The Super Red Burger was being marketed along with the "Red" bird from the Angry Birds game, and when I was served the box, I was rather impressed by how cool the tie-in promotional box looked just on it's own. McDonald's Thailand has been running some nice looking pie boxes lately, I've had a few really cool boxes before, with the Batman/Superman boxes from Hong Kong one of my personal favourites, but Singapore rarely shines in the packaging department. The foldout sides are a common appearance in Hong Kong as well, but I believe this was the first time it'd been used in Singapore. The arms and hair of the bird weren't popped out on my box by the staff upon order, and they took a bit of effort to fold out without tearing as the heat from the burger softened the paper box more than it should on the 5min walk back to my office.

|Another wonderful out-of-focus photo. That's what happens when The Wife doesn't take them...|
It wasn't really exciting, it was just very solid. If you can stomach $6.10 price tag for just the burger or nearly $8 for a combo, it's probably worth a try just take a photo and say you had one.
Rating - 4/5

One of my colleagues in Singapore was waiting patiently for my arrival to try this burger together with me. He was asking me every day I was there when we were going to go try it, and was beyond excited to be able to give it a try with me, so I wanted to make his day and post a photo of us here.
