We know that Alexa has been duped into doing some pretty weird things in her time – thanks, South Park – but this list curated by a family’s pet parrot is truly iconic.
Watch the reveal of Petra the parrot’s shopping list below. Who knew parrots liked rocks so much?
Petra asking for two tubs of butter because she “wanted a peanut” is a mood we can very much relate to. A girl’s gotta eat, y’know?
In other weird Alexa news, Channel 4 unexpectedly exposed Amazon’s AI-helper device with a recent episode of Celebrity Hunted.
While on the hunt for Made in Chelsea‘s Jamie Laing and Spencer Matthews, the Hunted HQ team hacked into Jamie’s personal devices for some dirt – including his Alexa.
The hunters wasted no time in pulling up the entirety of his search and usage history, and viewers were left pretty shocked (and kind of terrified) about how easy Alexa gives up her secrets.
If that doesn’t put you off having your own personal, virtual assistant, then you’ll be pleased to hear that Amazon’s Alexa has recently been upgraded, along with the second generation of Echo.
Alexa, how long will it be before you take over the world?
