It’s all the rage to have a talking, in-home assistant in your living room, but homes of the early 2000s were way ahead of the trend with the obnoxious, singing Big Mouth Billy Bass. Finally, someone has combined those two inescapable trends with an Alexa hack that speaks out of Billy’s big mouth.

The Billy looks completely normal, but when his head turns to recognize the “Alexa” command, you immediately notice something’s fishy.

Elsewhere in terrifying personifications of Alexa, someone in Vienna pulled off the same stunt with a replica human skull.

We’ll leave it to you to decide which one’s going to haunt your dreams tonight.
