Monty Python’s giant dead parrot lands in London

To celebrate the 45th anniversary of the first screening of the famous pet shop scene from the Monty Python skits, this dead parrot will be travel to the O2 in Greenwich, but first “lies dead” in London.

Londoners are more used to seeing pigeons in the UK capital, but a 50ft-long fibreglass model of a dead blue parrot has been installed on the Southbank in homage to Monty Python. In one of the best-loved sketches of the British comedy, John Cleese tries to return a dead “Norwegian blue” to a pet shop, staffed by a tenacious Michael Palin.
