Vinta’s overgrown parrot is a cracker addict

It's been all chickens in advertising lately, so it's nice to see a parrot for a change. And it's quite an impressive parrot in this humorous Vinta crackers campaign out of Canada. His name's Paul, he's human-size with a human girlfriend, and he's totally addicted to Vintas. (Paully always wants a cracker.) As you can see in the ads (by Zig in Toronto), this causes problems in his relationship, both in the bedroom and at parties. Paul is constantly semi-apologizing for his embarrassing urges, in a stoned drawl that's reminiscent of the wasted Denny's unicorn. The tagline says Vinta is "the cracker that cracker experts go crazy for."
