Not too long ago SNL did a parody on the Amazon Echo and boy is it funny.
The video shows an elderly man who is unable to trigger the Echo using the “Alexa” command. So instead, a new Echo is created in partnership with AARP that responds to pretty much any name, including names of medications.
I won’t spoil the rest of the video, but it is quite funny. That said, it’s a sign that the Echo is a popular device. After all, if something isn’t popular, why make fun of it?
