If you’re of the older generation and you sometimes have a problem getting your Amazon Echo to understand and/or answer you, Saturday Night Live has the product for you.

It’s called the Amazon Echo Silver, and it helps people from the Greatest Generation get answers to all the questions they need—even if they can’t remember the name, Alexa, or hear the actual response to their original query.
