50-Foot Dead Parrot Drops Into London to Promote Monty Python Reunion


What’s a Monty Python reunion without a dead parrot? And why settle for a simple prop you can bang on the counter when you could have a monstrous, 50-foot-tall dead parrot? To promote the live broadcast of the comedy troupe’s July 20 performance, UKTV’s Gold channel and sculptor Iain Prendergast created a massive fiberglass dead parrot, which was suspended from a crane and laid talons-up in London’s Potters Field this week. The bird is, of course, a reference to Monty Python’s enduring “Dead Parrot Sketch,” which you can watch below.
