Clip From IFC's Portlandia With Fred Armisen

Portlandia Proclaims, "Put a Bird on It!"

This Friday, Fred Armisen teams up with Carrie Brownstein for the premiere of their new IFC show, Portlandia, which gently, and not so gently, pokes fun at the lifestyles and cultural proclivities of the hipster hub of Oregon. The premiere's also available online, and it's hilarious. My favorite skit, however, is the clip "Put a Bird on It," which follows a decorating couple as they spruce up a home decor store with, of course, birds.

I'd already declared that birds are past their sell-by date, and asked you to vote for your favorite on-trend animal for 2011. What do you think? Is this skit further evidence that birds are over in the home decor world?

Haha! Awesome. I love how she's gagging at the end at the sight of a real bird.

I laughed really hard at this video, especially as I remembered how I stenciled swallows onto my wall two years ago. Oh, bird trend!

I love this video. But then again, I love anything with a bird on it.
