Have you seen the commercial for Perfect Polly The Parakeet? You think you're watching a spoof ad and keep waiting for the bird to start cursing, but it's for real.  Perfect Polly is a battery-operated parakeet, that's touted as being life like and the perfect companion.  It  chirps and swivels its head just like a "real" parakeet.   The only problem is, it doesn't look real, it's plastic and probably gets super annoying after about 20 seconds.  This ridiculous product is being marketed to people who may want a bird companion without the "mess of a real bird".  See for yourself how silly this is.
