Because sometimes, you just need to see a bird that can do a dead-on impression of a fictional robot.
YouTube user Carli Jeffrey and her seven-year-old daughter taught their budgie, Bluey, to impersonate R2-D2’s distinctive bleeps and bloops by playing him “four or five” clips from the Star Wars films.
According to Carli, Bluey also loves making laser sounds, kissing sounds, and the distinctive R2-D2 scream. He can also whisper English jibberish, but Carli and her daughter are only able to make out a few words here and there.
The other budgies in Bluey’s cage have tried copying their superstar pal, but can sadly only manage a few seconds’ worth of R2-D2 noises at a time. Poor effort, guys.
