Perfect Polly - A fake bird for the mentally insane
Perfect Polly is a fake, plastic bird with a motion sensor that detects movement. When the sensor is activated, the "bird" chirps, and slightly moves its head and tail. That's it. There's really nothing more to it. I even had to look this thing up just to make sure this wasn't some sort of SNL-style fake commercial.
With that brief yet blunt introduction, here's an infomercial on Perfect Polly the Parakeet - the commercial where people with very low IQs sit around and pretend their very fake, very plastic bird is real.
That's nearly two full minutes of people sitting around talking and "playing" with a $15 fake bird. Gather round, children! We're going to pet this plastic toy and sink deeper into the depths of insanity!
The commercial claims that Perfect Polly is just as lively and fun as a real Parakeet. You know, if you forget about that whole fact that it's not a real bird. They even claim that Perfect Polly will "touch your heart" and "brighten any room in your home." The only way this bird will brighten rooms is if the kids chuck it in the fireplace because they asked for a real bird.
I am concerned about "Perfect Polly", not being as "perfect" as they say. I'm thinking He/She is a down-right Perfect Scam!! It's been 2+ months since this Chronic-Insomniac-Extremely-Burned-Out Big-City-Injured (Line of Duty, Thank God!) Firefighter/Paramedic has ordered 2 "Perfect" Pollies. Yes, I appear to be as nutty & Depraved as any & all 900# 2A.M. Addicts. After all, I ordered them, whilst hubby & kids were fast-asleep...They (on the order tracking date) have changed the date 2x. It was changed in the end of July, To the date of the morning when I checked the website, to see what was taking so dang long!!?! I called again today (8/22/2013) and promised delivery by Monday8-26-13---8--28-13. I was even given a tracking # this time. I called the "Customer Service" # & was answered, both times, swiftly & in an " I'm Blowing You Off, like a piece of lint-on-my-sleeve" & by a woman to whom English was most definitely, not her first, or even her second language. (There's no surprise here after dealing with Dell etc...). This is sad for my youngest daughter, since I showed her a belated B-Day gift with which she could fill her cage from Tweet-Tweet who we set free after his broken wing mended & he had gained back strength etc... The 2nd Polly is a surprise-gift for my Mother-in-Law who is very busy, but adores all motion-activated Holiday decorations, and even year-round-self-animated critters. Any ideas on a refund or getting our Pollies soon? --Lisa & family

There is absolutely NOTHING lifelike about that piece of crap! The WINGS don't move! And it moves it's head an inch in one direction! Only one bird tweet featured in the commercial that becomes so annoying by the end each tweet feels like someone stabbing me in my ears! P.O.S.!!!!!!!!!!
Good thing PHYSICALLY insane people do not qualify.
Omg I sat here watching this commerical with my mouth to the floor!! Are these people serious, its made out of plastic. Whats next a plastic dog or cat that wags their tail!!!
I thought the same thing when I saw the ad. I wondered "what sort of ninnies buy this crap?". Then I remembered how popular the Pet Rock was...
I love mine. They will sell you a matching pair. I wish I had got a second one.
OMG I feel the same way just saw this advertisement and had to Google it to see if it was serious or not!
