Bird Lip-syncing To Song
As with many birds, especially pets, Patrick Jane loves listening to music. When his song comes on, the cockatiel loves to lip-sync to it.
The song, “Dilemma” by Nelly , a rapper, and featuring Kelly Rowland, an R&B singer, is said by his owner to be Patrick Jane’s favorite. It was number one in ten countries when it was released in 2002. It even won a Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at the 45th Grammy Awards.
Patrick Jane is named after the main character of The Mentalist television show. He is a Pied cockatiel and has even added a little flair to his lip-syncing, taking the part of the chorus. He fluffs up his feathers a bit and lifts his crest, even shaking his head a little throughout the song. He’s certainly got his timing down well, and looks like he really is the one singing the whole time.
