This video of a pet Budgie doing a spot-on R2-D2 impression has been around for quite a while, but I figured not every geek might have seen it yet. So where do I get one?
Here’s a little background on the video from the pet’s owner:
“Bluey was our first budgie and our seven-year old daughter hand-raised him. He has always been a curious bird, he was really intrigued by our voices and the cockatoos we have in our garden – he even copied the noise the crested pigeons make when they take off. We played R2-D2 sounds off YouTube to him four or five times and a few days later our daughter came running in saying he was doing R2-D2. We were blown away that he picked it up so quickly! The other budgies in his cage started copying him but could only manage a few seconds at a time. Bluey also loves making lazer sounds, the R2D2 scream sound, kissing sounds, and he whispers English jibberish we can only make out a few words.”
