Google Home’s Super Bowl ad sets off viewers' devices

Updated

This article originally appeared on PEOPLE.com.

Okay, Google — distinguish between real life and commercials.

Apparently, Google’s touching Super Bowl ad for its Home product worked a little too well for some viewers who already own the device. Within minutes of the clip airing on Sunday, owners on Twitter discussed how the commercial set off their home devices.

People’s devices began trying to answer the ad as if it were a real person in the home speaking to them, and madcap hilarity ensued.

And while at least Amazon customer didn’t share the experience …

… a similar incident occurred earlier this month, when a commercial spurred people’s Amazon’s Alexa device to order dollhouses after hearing reports of a girl who commanded her device to do the same.

This kind of thing never happened with Skynet.
