Snowball, the dancing cockatoo, is making the Internet rounds again. This time, people are falling in love with how he dances to “Another One Bites The Dust.”
I don’t know if you remember when Snowball first went viral, but it was great when it happened. It was the first time any of us had seen a cockatoo rock out like that, and it prompted a whole host of interviews, videos and even a scientific study.
So what’s Snowball’s story? From our interview:
Irena Schulz, founder and president of Bird Lovers Only Rescue Service, Inc, said that when Snowball was relinquished to her in August 2007 due to aggression issues, the gentleman who brought him left a CD and told them to play a specific track. And as soon as Snowball heard the Backstreet Boys?tune “Everybody,?he began to dance.
When Schulz posted a video of Snowball dancing to “Everybody”, it went insane.
Famous, Snowball went on to be “Late Show With David Letterman,?”Animal Planet,?”BBC International?and he even was part of a Taco Bell commercial.
So to our favorite dancing cockatoo, I’m glad the world is falling in love with you all over again.
