Don't Bother Asking This Sassy Amazon Echo For Any Help

Another thing we've learned about the new Amazon Echo? It gives all of the sass, all of the time.

Amazon Echo, a wireless device that serves as a personal assistant a la Siri, was just introduced via a promo vid. In the ad a family asks Echo questions and gets the right answers. But a viral parody imagined the cylinder as not so helpful in its testing phase.

In the dubbed version above, Echo, or Alexa -- the name it responds to in the voice activation -- displays a woeful lack of knowledge. The family asks Alexa the same questions as in the original and gets a whole lot of attitude instead.

Check out the parody above and compare it to the real promo below.
