Hilarious news parody The Onion:

Mitt Romney began actively courting the nation’s 50 million Hispanic voters this week when he introduced his new sidekick, an animated parrot named Paco ... Paco made his first appearance in the Romney campaign commercial which has begun running in Florida and Texas.

Faux news, The Onion News Network, is notorious for writing satirical stories around real news and often confusing those out of the loop. No doubt this video will upset those unaware the story is satire.
