Dancing cockatoos will get you fired!

Posted on

So yesterday, my friend Sherrie sent me a link to a mesmerizing video of a cockatoo named Snowball dancing to Backstreet Boys’ “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).” Seriously, I implore you to click this link and watch it for yourself, because this bird is destined to make an appearance in Missy Elliot’s next video. He’s that good.

Of course, after watching Snowball get down about 15 times in the last 24 hours, I’m kind of over him. Thankfully, a YouTube search for “cockatoo dancing” yielded 201 results. As you can see below, Frostee is quite the freak — at least when “Funky Cold Medina” is playing. And after the jump, you’ll find two more cockatoos shaking their tailfeathers (one of ’em to “My Humps”!); I just hope Fox gives me a producing credit once they greenlight So You Think Your Cockatoo Can Dance for next summer. (Oh, and no mocking me. Unless, of course, you’re 100% certain that Gil Grissom’s team couldn’t find some forensic evidence of America’s Got Talent on your DVR.)
