Playing dead is usually reserved for your dog, but this parrot will give your dog a run for it’s money any day!

This video was originally posted on LiveLeak, it shows a parrot playing with it’s owner while they chill on the sofa.

The owner points his finder at the bird and it immediately starts to roll over and play dead.
