Pet Cockatoo Sings His Own Version of ‘Gangnam Style’

Melissa Knowles

By now, you've probably heard Psy's viral hit song "Gangnam Style" more times than you can recall. In fact, you've probably also heard several copycat versions, but now there's a copy-bird version: A cockatoo is perched atop a laptop as someone records it singing along to Psy's famous tune. The cockatoo even tries to harmonize a bit during the chorus of the song.

The YouTube video has been viewed more than 450,000 times since it was first uploaded at the end of August. Many of the commenters think the bird's performance is cute and love the way he bobs his head to the beat of the music. Others wish they had such a talented pet bird themselves. Of course, there is one person who is kind of over the song's popularity, writing, "I thought it was bad enough my 7-year-old cousin loves this song...but now it's reached the animal kingdom."

This video certainly makes a strong case for animals being more like us than we ever knew.
