Video of the Week: "Alexa"


British folk/indie singer-songwriter BEANS ON TOAST new single and video for "Alexa" is required viewing for all tech savvy, tech-challenged, and music lovers alike. This clever animated video -- using discarded Amazon boxes -- is a cautionary tale that examines the future of AI, voice-activated Internet controls, and Amazon's continued world domination. The video begins with Beans saying: "And this one's got an intro that goes 'ALEXA play Beans on Toast... ALEXA' so nobody can listen to it on their Amazon Echo." This is a funny but thought-provoking tune warning us about our Brave New World.
