Some cynics may say this kangaroo is scratching itself. But clearly, the cute roo is actually playing a mean air guitar.

Hilarious footage taken in Perth’s Heirisson Island shows the kangaroo throw his head back and shred on an air guitar, clearly lost in his musical moment.

With one paw up in the air, Skippy does an uncanny impression of playing an electric guitar while rolling his head around happily.

The roo then appears to realise he’s been caught out – on camera, no less – and quickly stops, scratching his side and stomach as if nothing had happened.

Skippy clearly loves to riff on the guitar, but its not known whether he’s also a karaoke fan.
