If you think you’ve got pretty decent pipes, get ready to feel self-conscious: This parrot absolutely nails singing Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, The Beatles, and more. Yup, this parrot sings so goddamn good!
The latest rock and roll viral sensation comes in the form of a green parrot named Tico, who sings his little heart out while his owner, Frank Maglio, plays guitar. Beyond this latest video, Frank’s YouTube channel is filled with clips of other renditions, including songs by The Beatles, Guns N’ Roses, and more.
Sure, the parrot may not be nailing every lyric, but the exotic bird has got an ear for melody and some insane bravado!
Per Ultimate Classic Rock, the duo appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show, where Frank explained he’d only discovered the bird’s vocal talents early last year.
“One day I was playing guitar back in March, during the second week of lockdown,” he explained, “and Tico started screaming like he wanted attention, so instead of throwing the towel in, I grabbed my guitar … and sat down by him and started playing, and I was like, ‘I think he’s singing.’”
After the recorded his wife took and posted to Facebook went viral, they pair started making more and more. Combined, all of Maglio’s videos of Tico have been viewed more than 358,000 times.
