Potty-Mouthed Pensioner Begs Amazon Echo To Play Song But It’s ‘Confused’ By Scottish Accent

Octogenarian Andrew Weir was left tearing his hair out after his repeated requests to play ‘The Bricklayer’s Song’ by Scottish folk group The Corries baffled the voice-activated virtual assistant – leaving his grandson howling with laughter.

Alexa’s dulcet tones replied ‘sorry I don’t know that’, ‘I can’t find that’ and even activated a shopping list thinking he’d ordered PEAS after he implored the device to understand him, adding a hopeful ‘please’ to his request.
