Well this has created a stir on social media, an interviewer missing out on the perfect opportunity in his career.
Over in America, CNN Correspondent Nick Valencia interviewed Jim Darling (from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina) who had decided that he really didn't care about the evacuation order for Hurricane Florence and was staying put.
But it's something else that caught people's attention.
Watch the video then we'll talk more.
It seems that viewers were more interested in the parrot.
CNN is interviewing a guy with a parrot as if there’s no parrot. You have to address the parrot man. The parrot is a thing. Literally no mention of the parrot. pic.twitter.com/fjrgXhqs5t— Angela Fritz (@angelafritz) September 11, 2018
on the next cut they should interview the parrot like the dude isn't there.— m i t h (@ManInTheHoody) September 11, 2018
There is a guy who shows up almost every year to to the annual broadcasters conference in Las Vegas with a parrot. He gets a press pass. Everyone in the press room acts like there's no parrot.— Lydia Beyoud (@ElleBeyoud) September 11, 2018
I've always wanted to know his (and the parrot's) story. #itsvegasbecool
Is it possible the parrot was actually the one talking, and the man was merely a feathered ventriloquist's prop?— Susan K. Levine (@SKLevine) September 12, 2018
So many awesome ways they could go with this. Such a waste. Such a horrible waste.— Andrew Shveda (@AShveda) September 11, 2018
cc @catesish missed bird opportunity by old media. BF would have gotten an exclusive with the parrot.— Sunfire (@Sunfire2109) September 11, 2018
And yet, you know the parrot is why that guy got interviewed in the first place. "Dude...go talk to the guy with the parrot"— Ethel Mercaptan (@EthelMercaptan) September 13, 2018
That parrot has occupied my mind for the last 24 hours. I've been unable to think about anything else. What's the parrot's deal? What are its hopes and dreams? Wal-Mart allows pets now?— Kevin Ramsey (@Necroglobule) September 13, 2018
