Children Cheer Their Grandfather Up by Asking Alexa to Fart

Nick Harvey’s two kids cheered their grandfather up while on a visit to his Buxted, Sussex, home.

The brothers asked Amazon’s Alexa to fart, which it then promptly did, with the machine’s flatulent noises heard loud and clear in this video, which was originally uploaded to Twitter on June 18.

Harvey explained that because of a bout of ill health his father had been feeling low, but he told Storyful how his sons lift their grandfather’s mood. “They are just the tonic he needs,” he said. Credit: Nick Harvey via Storyful
