The "floooor" part sounds just like the real singer.

Parrots are so metal. It doesn't surprise me at all that he was able to pronounce the rock dots in "flööööör!"

It's always weird when the cover version is better than the original.

To ponder: How many times must that parrot's owner have listened to that song before the bird picked it up? Gah....

My cat very much did not like that.

Best re-imagining of a song since Tori Amos covered Eminem's "97 Bonnie and Clyde."

Let the parrot hit the floor!

Having never heard the song, I thought it was funny. Then I heard the song and am really impressed by the bird. Really made it his own.

The parrot could probably try out for a part in any number of Saw remakes or Rob Zombie flicks.

Fucking hipster parrot, thinking he's so "edgey" by churning out a home-studio "gritty" cover of a metal classic "reimagined" as a love ballad. Ooh, how original. Bet he "chilled out, bra" afterwards with a PBR, and had to be talked out of wearing his favorite tweed flat cap during the video.

Fucking hipsters.
