That Parrot!

Ask Katy

Hi Katy, In the "My Own Way" music video, there is a cute parrot that is on Nick’s synths and Roger’s drum kit. Who’s idea was it to have the parrot in the music video and who owned it?
Sincerely, Delta

""Great question! Polling the band: they believe the parrot must have been Russell Mulcahy’s idea as he directed the video. They seem to remember the parrot being a friendly little chap, but he wasn’t terribly talkative. We have no idea whatsoever who owned him or what became of him. Katy"
