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 Ozzie Albies and Ronald Acuna Jr. in some festive pregame flying disc competition ... but after one toss of the disc that game was over. 

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 have to get them linked up with the Mike-Trout-shirt-wearing Angels fans for a dance-off or flash mob someday ...
