You’re probably used to barking commands at your smart speaker and hearing ‘I’m sorry, I didn’t quite hear that’ in return. Well, if you install a new Samuel L. Jackson-centric update to an Amazon Alexa product in the near future, that response could be upgraded to something along the lines of, ‘Say that again. I dare you, I double dare you motherfucker, say that one more goddamn time.’ That’s because Amazon has recruited Jackson as a new ‘celebrity voice’ for its AI assistant, and for a small price you can replace the default robo-voice with that of the Hollywood icon. Here’s a little teaser of what to expect from this most unlikely of unions.

The Samuel L. Jackson Alexa ’Skill’ will have the Pulp Fiction star offering weather updates, putting on requested music, telling jokes and more – and most fittingly, it has an explicit mode which can be toggled on and off depending on your preference for F-bombs. We’re yet to find out whether it will be able to recite the full ‘path of the righteous man’ Bible passage, or if the presence of Nick Fury on your Echo might make it a target for HYDRA attacks.

The update is being launched later this year at the introductory price of $0.99. Hold onto your butts.
