But neither seemed to be to his fancy, with the animal discarding both of the items on the ground.

The last item the flightless bird then eyes off is a spotted headband, pulling it from the car before dropping it as well.

Dozens of people commented on the video, with one person joking the animal could come in handy during their supermarket run.

‘Thanks for the laugh. Can I borrow him when I shop again? He can put the groceries in my trolley for me, or maybe not,’ they wrote.

Others said that he appeared ‘none to impressed’ over the items on offer, with Snake Catchers Adelaide replying that he prefers to play with gold coins.

The video has since been viewed nearly 4,500 times, with 140 people reacting to it.
