Amazon’s Super Bowl Advert Features Harrison Ford, and a Boston Terrier (video)

Amazon posted its Super Bowl ad yesterday.

I am unfortunately in a place where I can't play audio, but it looks like a lot of fun. From what I can see, the theme in the advert is failed attempts to integrate Amazon Alexa into things like a Jacuzzi, toothbrush, a dog collar, etc.

    Thank you for putting this up. I strongly recommend not eating or drinking while watching so you don’t choke while laughing.

    I saw this one and some of the others thanks to an invitation to rate them from a newspaper that I subscribe to. This was definitely one of my favorites.

    They’ll take my comment down on YouTube (and it looks like they’re doing it a lot, considering the low comment to views ratio), but this describes exactly my fears about the way AmazonGoogleFacebook spy on us and incompetently use our data. Time to break up the monopolies.

    Please never put Alexa in anything for cats. I couldn’t take the expenses!! “Ordering catnip …”

    Isn’t that the late Carrie Fisher’s beloved pet dog?

      No, Gary is a French Bulldog. I’m a fan of both breeds, which is why I know.

    I avoid the big sports day ads but usually enjoy it when someone who has watched some of them points out a good one. Glad I got the chance to see this. It was funny. 🙂
