Cockatiel has watched too much ‘Game of Thrones,’ now sings theme song

It only takes a couple of episodes for the orchestral theme from Game of Thrones to get stuck in your head forever. But something tells us this little cockatiel, Tico, has watched the entire series more than once.

And really, Tico must whistle this tune all the time—just look at how annoyed his gray friend seems to get when he hears those familiar notes once again. Must be more of an Orange Is the New Black fan.

Tico’s not the only cockatiel who loves violent medieval fantasy, though.

This is, of course, a big change of pace for cockatiels, who in years past enjoyed watching the Star Wars films on continuous loop.

Man, these are some nerdy birds.
