A man struggles to get Alexa to play John Lennon in this hilarious footage, as the gadget insists on playing the Bee Gees instead.

Billy, 64, can be seen growing more and more frustrated with the voice controlled Amazon device.

Filmed by his partner’s daughter, Alexa plays ‘How Deep Is Your Love’ instead, the Daily Record reports.

“Are you listening to me?” Billy says. “I’m supposed to be talking to you.”

“Alexa, can you do me a favour please?”

“Turn this to John Lennon please if you don’t mind. Christ almighty.

“Alexa could you turn John Lennon on please. You’ve got the f*****g Bee Gees on and I don’t like them.”

More than 4,200 people have watched the clip since it was uploaded by his fiance’s daughter Tracey McGuinness on Facebook on Monday.

Tracey, who can be heard laughing in the background, admitted “this is too funny” as he repeatedly failed and eventually gave up.

The 40-year-old said: “At first I thought he was talking to my mum, they have a good bit of banter between each other so I thought he was asking her to change the music to John Lennon.

“He’d had a few pints and eventually I realised he was talking to the Alexa – this had been going on for around 10 minutes before I started filming!”

“He’s really doesn’t do technology – he doesn’t even text – but he’s been trying to get to grips with it.

“I showed him the video the next day and he even he was laughing. I told him I was putting it online and he joked about it ‘going viral'”.
