Parrot does pretty hilarious impression of Matthew McConaughey

Parrot Thinks Matthew McConaughey Is Alright

Einstein the talking parrot has more fans on Twitter and Facebook than most humans -- and once you watch this funny video, you'll see why.

Einstein is a Congo African grey parrot, and she's 17 years old. She was watching TV as Matthew McConaughey accepted his Academy Award for his performance in "Dallas Buyers Club," and something about McConaughey's famous "alright, alright, alright!" quote really stuck with her. The YouTube video of Einstein mimicking Matthew has already gotten well over 400,000 views.

Parrot does pretty hilarious impression of Matthew McConaughey

Since Einstein is a very clever bird (hence her name), she was quickly able to whip up an impressive Matthew McConaughey impression. Maybe their shared Texas heritage helped.

Einstein feels very strongly that you know she is NOT the same parrot who was featured on the "TV show called Animal Planet. We do share the same name, good looks, and the desire to entertain humans! However, that parrot is Einstein the Pet Star. He appeared on that Animal Planet in 2006 and was an overnight sensation! He is very talented and performs daily shows at the Knoxville, Tennessee Zoo," she "told" her owner.

We applaud Einstein for being so supportive of her fellow parrot.

Oh, and for comparison's sake:
