It’s one thing to yell at the TV. It’s another to have the TV talk back to you — or your voice-activated devices.
That was the case Wednesday night when “South Park” returned for its 21st season with an episode titled “White People Renovating Houses,” which largely dealt with taking shots at the white nationalist movement, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Because you know those little animated snots love to mess with you, Cartman and company were involved in a sub-plot involving AI-controlled digital assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home. When the characters yelled commands, viewers in the real world were forced to listen to their own devices perk up.
Some of the results were dutifully noted on Twitter:

Watching the new @SouthPark episode, and the show has already added about six inappropriate items to my echo dot shopping list. Lmao.

Oh, and if you’re frustrated with Alexa, just get yourself a Jim Bob. Doot doot!
