A parrot managed to place an order on Amazon via the voice giant of the US digital giant imitating the voice of its owner in London, reports the British newspaper The Sun Wednesday.

When questioned by the British tabloid,  the owner of the parrot did not recall ordering gift boxes worth 10 pounds.  And for good reason. After excluding her husband and eight-year-old son as prospective buyers, the 39-year-old South African resident in south-east London discovered the culprit: Buddy, her 5-year-old parrot from Gabon.

The bird imitated her voice in her absence to activate the device and proceed with the purchase which, according to an Amazon spokesman quoted in the Sun, can be refunded.

“I could not believe it when I realized that Buddy had placed an order on Amazon. We have owned the device for four months and I only use it for music or to-do lists, but I never ordered anything online, “Corienne said.

Besides the possibility to place orders on Amazon, the connected device, Alexa, also allows to control the heating of the house, to control the mobile phone, to check the weather, etc.

Buddy has since been filmed by its owner. The video shows him activating the device by shouting “Alexa” before adding “Oh, hmmm, stay in line, Alexa”.
