The Pirate Parrot attempted to mess with Ozzie Albies and Ronald Acuna Jr. but ended up dancing with them
Before the Braves' 2-1 win over the Pirates Wednesday night at PNC Park, the Pirate Parrot attempted to do what all mascots do: Mess around with some opposing players.
After sauntering (or flying? Who knows for sure) over to the first-base line, the Parrot tried to engage
What Acuna was interested in, though, was dancing. After coaxing the Parrot into a dance, they exchanged attempts at the moves made famous by Backpack Kid, whose style is now known throughout the internet. And they did a good job!
We got a floss-off in Pittsburgh. 😂 pic.twitter.com/k65c9eRNRr— MLB (@MLB) August 22, 2018
We have to get them linked up with the Mike-Trout-shirt-wearing Angels fans for a dance-off or flash mob someday ...
