Iggy Pop singing ‘Surfin’ Bird’ to his cockatoo is exactly what the world needs now


 
So OK, if you’re not following “Biggy Pop,” the eponymous Instagram Iggy Pop made for his pet bird Biggy earlier this year, you’re missing out. Go do that now. We’ll wait.

OK, then, having done that, you’ve seen that Pop’s Instagram is a series of home movies of the proto-punk godfather with his feathered companion (who looks to be a salmon-crested cockatoo, if you’re interested in that sort of thing). And it’s pretty wonderful. Biggy is the same bird who appeared in Pop’s Christmas video a couple of years ago:
 

 
And here, as promised in the headline, is Pop serenading said parrot with the Trashmen’s idelible classic “Surfin’ Bird.”
 

 
BONUS! Here’s some more avian balladeering—Biggy dancing along while Iggy sings Willie Dixon’s “Little Red Rooster!”
 

 
Undying gratitude to Mr. John “Derf” Backderf for bringing this to our attention.
