Chanel the African Grey parrot has gone viral, after she escaped her Liverpool home and owner Sandra Hannah filmed a hilarious Facebook Live video of her looking for the bird.
2020 has brought the most unlikely of events: a coronavirus pandemic, a High School Musical reunion, and now an African Grey parrot named Chanel has become a gay icon after she escaped her Liverpool home, sparking a mass hunt to find her as she flew towards the canal. You can't make this up.
Also known as Chanel Chanellington, the bird, belonging to Sandra Hannah, supposedly escaped after a neighbour's drill scared her - and Sandra set out on a loud and proud mission to hunt her down while live-streaming, resulting in #FINDCHANEL being the top trend on Twitter.
If you haven't already seen the video which has now been viewed 1.7 million times, a frantic bird-mum, Sandra, can be seen walking down the street screaming out "CHANNNEELLLLLL!" as she tries to recall the bird, named after her pet dog Coco, into coming home - and it's hilarious.
Still, memes stop for no one, and Twitter is currently flooded with videos and photos that have had us cracking up all weekend long.
Here are some of the Chanel the parrot memes.
