This bird has a weird owner.

It's usually entertaining to listen to someone else's bird showing off his language skills for a few minutes, but God help anyone who has to live with one of those damned things.

I dunno. It seems like it's been dubbed.

lol Yep.  But they're cool.  Just don't cuss around them or talk about anything you don't want repeated...they're worse gossips than 13 year-old girls named Cathy.

I'm thinking fake, but really, even if it's real it's not that entertaining that it matters much.

This. Kinda makes me thankful that my lovebird never did learn to talk. (Not that anyone expected him to.) Chirping, I can live with. Incessant babbling? Hmmm....

While this video could be a fake (it's not), that would be like faking a chimp flinging poo.

What's wrong with people that they can't tell?  Just dumb?

Nah, head movements are perfectly in sync. An old neighbour had a parrot that would blurt out disturbingly accurate racist filth with perfect diction at odd moments. It was funny (in 1980) until a gas inspector of African origin came to read the meter and took great offence.

It's the voice that sounds 'off' to me. And yeah I've been around lots of parakeets and parrots.
That's why I mention it.

But you know what? NBD.

well, they're not speaking, they're just mimicking known sounds. it;s like young kids, they hear the same thing over and over and over again, they pick it up, or what they interpret those sounds as.

I had a blind college professor who had a helper African grey parrot.  It could take the phone off the hook and answer it, in class he could ask it to get something from his bag and it would.  It was even litter trained.  He said it better than a dog because it had superior vision for finding things and was much better at object detection.  Also the bird was 24 at the time and supposedly had another 20 years left, so it had all kinds of time to pick up on more complex tasks.

It would steer him across campus verbal and alert him to things like cars, cross walks, etc.  He also had a standard issue guide dog and the parrot would troll the dog by mimicking the professor's voice and giving it commands.

Difference between that and this parrot is that this parrot actually understands what it's saying:

Also, someone went to a lot of trouble to get that bird to talk. Yes, budgies can learn to talk; but in my experience, they have to be solo, so that they bond with the owner, and want to imitate them. They much prefer the company of other budgies, and won't learn to do or say much if they even have a mirror, much less another bird to keep them company. I've had budgies that said a couple of words and phrases (I had one named Hawk that could distinctly say "You creep!", because that's what I'd say to him when he tried to steal some of my food) but nothing as elaborate as this bird.

Thank you.  I just wasted 15 min on "You're so CUTE!".  Adorable bird though, coming from an non-bird person.

Well point for the owner for being a good person. Keets are harder to teach to talk than other birds in my experience. Since this bird goes beyond a few words or phrases it tells me the owner spends a lot of time with the bird. I also see a fine cage with toys. Finally, they give the bird some freedom. All good things a bird owner should do.

It pisses me off when I see people that just use birds as decorations. Buy the cage a stick em in the corner. What a waste. Birds are a lot of fun when treated correctly.

We always had parakeets when I was a kid. They could not imitate speech. They could tweet and whistle in a way that showed they were trying to mimic the little phrases we'd say to them, but they could not pronounce the actual words, the way parrots do.
