Alexa owners driven mad by Motherland episode which keeps triggering their devices to order 12 bottles of wine & a taxi
ALEXA owners are being driven mad by a Motherland episode which keeps triggering their devices to order 12 bottles of wine, a taxi and play dance tunes.
Fans are warning others to turn their Amazon voice assistants off in case “an Uber turns up at your door” while watching.
In one scene, party girl Meg, played by Tanya Moodie, 49, says: “Mmm that is a good wine. Alexa, order 12 bottles of Sauvignon Blanc.”
Later, while hosting a bash with pals, she says: “Right, Alexa, order me an Uber. We’re going out.”
Later she screams: “Alexa, play my New Year’s Playlist. Alexa, play happy hardcore.”
The sitcom is based on a group of middle-class London mums.
Viewers of the second series on Netflix and BBC iPlayer have moaned about the scenes.
Shan Nelson said: “Motherland has just set my Alexa off so many times in the last half hour, thanks Meg.”
Stuart Mather said: “Can’t watch without Tanya Moodie summoning my Alexa to play house music or ordering an Uber.”
Darren Humphreys added: “As much as I love Motherland . . . it’s setting my Alexa off every time.”
