Ragnheufleiderdom – The Famous Icelandic Mime Pigeon

Check this out. A marvelous performance by Ragnheufleiderdom, the famous Icelandic mime pigeon, in an ad for the Peugeot 307.

Here’s a still of his finest moment as he wipes some shit off a car roof using the tricky backward diagonal wing manoeuvre:

Cheers for sending it, Patricia!

I’ve started collecting top vids featuring pigeons, and putting them here: the Top Pigeon Vids page. If you find any, send them in, and I’ll add them to the collection. Clearly, they are largely featuring ammateurs. Still funny though.

Must get my vid cam out again one day. Maybe I can persuade Ragnheufleiderdom to chuck in a cameo? Get in there before he bags himself an Oscar and forgets who he is and where he comes from. Before he swaps the alleyways of Reykjavik for the sweeping boulevards of LA.

It won’t be long.

You can see it in his eye:

Gagging for it.

‘Get me to Hollywood’ written all over his cheeky grin.

Mind you, can’t really blame him. If I had mime talent like that I’d be straight out there.

Mart reckons his greatest moment was in ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’. Tbh, I thought that was a heron, but never mind.

    Certainly he is among the great offspring of the Viking pigeons – I hear they were famous for their stage art and their freaky feathery beards.
    By the way, why do pigeons don’t wear a beard nowadays? That would look good.

    RoooRoooo: Just not really in vogue anymore I guess. Heard the moustache may be on its way back in though… Shame coz I never saw a pigeon looking good with a tache.
