Einstein the Parrot Imitates Matthew McConaughey

"Alright, Alright, Alrriiiggghht!

I caused quite a commotion this week with my Matthew McConaughey impression! It all started on Thursday, November 13 when Marcia started receiving a bunch of emails from radio stations and TV networks. Everybody requesting permission to air my YouTube Video! 

As we watched the 2014 Academy Awards, Matthew McConaughey accepted his Best Actor Award for his performance in "Dallas Buyers Club." We were so proud and happy for our fellow Texan! In fact we were so happy that Jeff imitated his famous catchphrase "Alright, Alright, Alrriiiggghht!” as Marcia and Jeff laughed out loud! I liked that they were happy and they kept repeating it over and over.  The next day I started to say it just like they did.  I've always knew how to say "Alright" as in this video, but with a different inflection. However, with all the excitement and reinforcement, it didn't take long for me to learn it the way Mr. McConaughey says it. 

This video laid dormant for about 8 months with little more than 30,000 views. Then BAM! All of a sudden it rose to over 500,000 in a just a few days! The next morning I was on all the national TV morning shows.

Mr. McConaughey, I think you're "Pretty Cool!" I just want you to know I am very proud you received your Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
