This clip is a serious contender for “Funniest 35 second of Magnum P.I. ever recorded”
Over on Twitter, Chris “Wear A Mask” Driver – @Jerkwheatery – shared this bizarre clip from the hit series, Magnum P.I. and we’re not sure how it’s escaped our notice until now.

People clearly appreciated the clip, because it’s been viewed well over three million times, gathering responses like these.
How Merlin the Bird did not win an Emmy is an outrage. https://t.co/v3oMYrMxLY

I’m so glad there’s a visual record of television's pre-Sopranos era. No one would believe it otherwise. https://t.co/jJz5m73Ovc

One comment in particular struck a chord with us.
Magnum PI Writers Room:
"This is the bad version, but what if, like, Higgins can speak parrot? Parrots can mimic us, right? I'm not saying he can speak parrot. That's ridiculous. But something like that."
Ten hours of silence later…
"Fuck it, Higgins can speak parrot." https://t.co/JgmLsXKojv
