In a moment captured on camera by a baby monitor, teacher and TikToker Aly Femia‘s 2-year-old son tried to use the Amazon Alexa in his room to get his dad’s attention. Instead, the smart speaker did something that left the toddler baffled.
“Alexa, I need daddy,” the boy said to the speaker.
“So what should I add?” Alexa replied.
“Daddy,” he said again.
“I’ve added ‘daddy’ to your shopping list,” the speaker then alerts the boy. “Do you need anything else?”
“Uh — no,” he said in response.
Femia’s video of the Amazon Alexa fail, which has received more than 822,000 likes, has left TikTokers in hysterics.
“I’ve watched this 20 times [and] it gets funnier each time,” one user said.
“If only it was that easy,” another joked.
“This video needs more appreciation,” a third wrote. “It’s too good.”
