Working Principle of Angry Birds :

Liquid nitrogen is nitrogen in a liquid state at an extremely low temperature. Liquid nitrogen is a cryogenic fluid that can cause rapid freezing on contact. There is 78.09 % Nitrogen present in the atmosphere.

In this experiment, the liquid nitrogen gets inside the holes you made on the Ping pong balls and when you take it  out the liquid rapidly converts into gas and escapes from the holes. Now, since it’s a sphere shaped object, there were no edges to balance it out. This is called torque. Torque is a force that causes things to rotate.

Try this out with an object with edges and see what happens to it.
