Some animals are natural born stars. They have that special je ne sais quoi that can’t be taught. We’ve all seen dogs who know how to perform the craziest tricks or cats who are super smart. But we were absolutely blown away by the talent of one parrot on TikTok. And we guess you could say we’re now his biggest fans.
It’s not every day that you see a parrot with pipes like Tico, but when the bird sings, he really sings. Tico’s talent is often featured on his TikTok page (@ticoandtheman), whether that be his unique cover of Nirvana or whistling along to Aerosmith. It's safe to say he's a fan of rock, but in a recent video it was his jazz skills that were on display. “A purple bird,” the video’s caption reads, just in case his jazzy tune is a little hard to understand.
The comments section was blown over by Tico’s incredible singing. "Where’s the tip jar????" @arwensmom0106 wondered. "Bird sings better than I do," @thevikingwallace joked. "He’s here every Tuesday from 8-9 and 9-10," @arellanphotography teased. "The original lounge singer!" @einsteinparrot exclaimed.
In fact, Tico's singing has become so popular that over 480,000 people have tuned in to watch his performance. The bird has also gone viral in the past for a previous video where he again pulled a Lady Gaga.
"Bird got soul!" @minkfest wrote. "Love the lead singer of this band," @luckygoldstars teased. "I'm floored!!!! Coolest ever!!!!!," @karenntx66.
We guess it's safe to say that Tico is an internet sensation. We just know that he's going to be a big star!
