Do you ever look at your Amazon Echo and wish that Alexa had a bit more personality? Like, instead of calmly saying, "OK, now playing songs by The Weeknd from Spotify in the bedroom," perhaps she could exclaim: "OKURRRRR, girlfriend, I know what you're up to!" Well, that's a reality that Amazon's star-studded Super Bowl commercial wants you to imagine — if Alexa lost her voice and needed a little help from some famous friends. Between Cardi B, Rebel Wilson, Anthony Hopkins, and the ever-charming Gordon Ramsay, the range of potential Alexa personalities in the ad is downright hilarious.
Though the commercial isn't actually promising celebrity voices for your Echo, fans would definitely spring for a new device if it meant having their favorite stars as household assistants.
If this is a real thing I would literally put my whole tax refund to pay for Rebel Wilson to be the voice of my Alexa https://t.co/T2m8llhuvC

I'd be okay with Gordon Ramsay as the permanent Alexa voice, he'd keep me on my shit when I'm slacking https://t.co/S0YkFAF6oW

Except Anthony Hopkins, perhaps. Westworld and Silence of the Lambs taught people better than to trust his voice.
