Clever Girl: African Grey Parrot Instructs Amazon Echo To Turn All The Lights On

November 16, 2017

This is a short video of Petra the African Grey instructing an Amazon Echo to turn all the lights on in a room. She seems pretty pleased with herself afterwards, then proceeds to recite what I can only assume is a conversation her owners recently had. I think something about saying you're sorry? Should we be concerned?

Keep going for the video with actual audio. I'm not sure why I even made that gif.

Thanks to Diane K, who wants to know if parrot testimony can be used in court.

    I sense trouble. I think this thing requires a Do Not Respond To Parrot switch.

    I want an African Grey some day, they are so awesome. People adopt them without realizing they can live an entire lifetime, like 80-something years, so they sadly get abandoned all the time.

    I will rescue one some day.

    I for one am terrified of parrots. I really just hate birds in general. I don't mind birds outside but birds as pets... no fucking way.

    Anyone know what else the bird says?

  • Jonathan Tippett

    Sounds like "do you want fresh water? Say you're sorry"

    The name of her lover?
