Beep Boop Zippity Blurp: Parakeet Emulating R2-D2

November 12, 2014

parakeet-r2d2.jpg

Hot on the little birdy heels of yesterday's laser blaster lyrebird comes this parakeet emulating the sounds of everyone's favorite astromech droid, R2-D2. "I prefer the R5 series." Okay you are way too into astromech droids. Still, I think we can all agree this is -- wait for it -- wait for it -- the boid we're looking for. "Wow." Right? Now if you'll excuse me, my neck has a very important date with a ninja sword.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Stephanie A, who told me she has a pair of lovebirds. How about that?!

    Somewhere George Lucas is editing a directors cut of this clip for a special edition Blu Ray, where the girl holding the bird is digitally enhanced with a new jacket and a greater sense of bewilderment at the end, there are some extra droids and Tusken Raiders on banthas added into the background of the scene, and the parakeet shoots first.

    Great! Now get a C-3PO parrot pair for it and let them have a conversation.

    The girl's face at the end: "... the fuck did we listen to?"

    A parakeet doing the Cos would break the internet
