Woman's Amazon Alexa Orders £100 Worth Of Sex Toys By Itself
Mortified Katie Brown had put her Alexa right next to the TV, only for it to pick up the voice of Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat as her brother was watching Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.
Seriously, can you think of *anyone* less appropriate to take a shopping order from?!
And before you know it she had three flesh light sex toys in her basket, at a price of £107.
In the movie, we see Borat attempt to order three flashlights using an Alexa but instead mistakenly orders three... errr....much more x-rated items.
But it all went a little pear shaped when Katie's Alexa heard Borat's order and thought he was talking to her, automatically finding the sex toys online for her, without her knowledge.
Luckily, Katie's brother Bobby, 25, was in the room watching the film and heard Alexa chime in.
He then dashed to tell his sister, 26, what had happened, and she was so amused she thought he was joking at first.
That is, until she checked her account and realised the order was sitting there...
Katie, from Melksham, Wilts, said: "I've never had anything happen like this before. I've seen it happen to other people before, but not me. I never thought it would happen to me."

She added: "We just had a bit of a chuckle about it.
"I didn't tell my brother off because he wasn't to know. Borat says in the film, 'Alexa, order' and my Alexa was next to the television."
When her brother told her about the incident, Katie said she was "in stitches".
She went on to share the hilarious blunder in a post online in a post, which racked up more than 6,800 likes, shares and comments.
In the post, Katie said: "Soo my brother [is] watching the new Borat film and Borat says, "Alexa, order three fleshlight p***ies".
"My Alexa goes off so checked my Amazon and it's ordered three of the f***ers. £107 I'm dying."
Katie said: "If they had arrived I probably would have laughed and wondered where they had come from before I twigged it was Borat.
"Either that or [I would have blamed] my brother. He's tried to set an alarm for 3am before on my Alexa, but I've always caught him out.
"My advice to anyone would be don't put your Alexa next to the television. It's a lesson learned, definitely."
An Amazon spokesperson said: "When customers order using Alexa, the item will not automatically be purchased, but rather added to your shopping cart."
Katie has now turned off her voice purchasing to ensure the incident doesn't happen again.
Anyone else suddenly itching to watch Borat? We see the potential for a pretty hilarious prank here...
