If you're in need of a good laugh to start your day, look no further than this viral video featuring a talented cockatiel and the iconic song "September" by Earth, Wind & Fire. This feathered performer is taking the internet by storm with its impeccable comedic timing and infectious dance moves.

The video begins with the owner sowing the seeds of musical knowledge, teaching the bird to whistle the catchy tune. As the cockatiel picks up the melody, it's hard not to join in with a resounding "Haha, yes!"

However, the real hilarity ensues when the owner experiences the consequences of their musical lesson. Waking up at 7 am to the sound of the cockatiel enthusiastically belting out "September" may not be everyone's idea of a pleasant wake-up call. In fact, the owner's reaction can be summed up in their exasperated words: "Well, this is unexpected!"

As the video continues, we see a flurry of comments from amused viewers. Many can't help but express their admiration for the talented bird, with one comment declaring, "Kiki is the best birb ever!" Others appreciate the cockatiel's ability to seamlessly pick up where it left off mid-whistle, showcasing its mischievous side.

The video also sparks nostalgia in some viewers, with one reminiscing about a beloved pet cockatiel that would greet them every morning with its cheerful chirping. Others share their own experiences with musical pets, including a frog who sings on cue. It seems that having a pet that routinely serenades you is something to be cherished and enjoyed.

Of course, no viral video is complete without a few humorous side comments. One viewer couldn't help but point out the neglected state of the aquarium in the background, jokingly suggesting a much-needed water change. Another shares a story about a neighbor with a talkative grey macaw, whose vocalizations became a familiar sound in the entire neighborhood.

As the video ends, we're left with a mix of emotions. Some viewers express their longing for a lost pet, recounting a heartbreaking tale of a bird's escape. Others suggest new songs for the talented cockatiel to learn, ranging from Gilbert and Sullivan classics to other catchy tunes.

In the end, this dancing cockatiel serves as a reminder of the unexpected moments that bring joy into our lives. Whether it's a serenade at 7 am or a comedic dance routine, this bird knows how to keep us entertained. So, if you're ever in need of a pick-me-up, just remember to dance like nobody's watching, just like this feathered superstar.

Me sowing (teaching the bird September): Haha f*** yeah!!! Yes!! Me reaping (hearing September at 7am): Well this f***ing sucks. What the f***.


Kiki is the best birb ever!


Why dare you shush them


Rocking it


That aquarium looks like it needed a water change a couple months ago


I love how he picked back up mid whistle instead of starting from the beginning. What a little troll 😂


It's not the same, but I got a frog, and he sings. When you have a pet that routinely sings, you better expect and appreciate the singing


There was a guy who used to live three blocks away from me and had a grey macaw as a pet. I knew about this man long before I had actually seen him or his parrot. The entire neighborhood was VERY familiar with this feathered friend and his unique vocalizations.


Good song for a bird to learn. Next, how about some Gilbert and Sullivan?


I miss my cockatiel I came home from school and my grandma was cleaning its cage she opened the sliding glass door while the bird was sitting on top of her cage and I knew my bird was going to try to escape and I said in a rushed tone "grandma the bird is gonna escape" and she said "shut up no she's not" as soon as the door opened she flew out I was 11 I think already had the bird for 6 months, and then my grandma played ignorance to all of it.
