Astronaut Twins Play With Earth’s Lights In Super Bowl Ad

A new advertisement by Amazon shows Mark Kelly and Scott Kelly (twin astronaut brothers) accidentally causing universal power blips in an event named “The Incident.” At the end of the 90-second advertisement, Scott Kelly floats over to a board on the ISS (International Space Station) as he listens to automated virtual-assistant service by Amazon’s Alexa state, “Powering up, powering down, powering up, powering down.”

“She claims she is doing it, but I see nothing,” the astronaut shouts. “Do you?”

From exterior, Mark Kelly is displayed on a spacewalk. He sees down at the Earth and views the alarming sight of complete regions full of lights turning on and off. “Holy …” he claims. The ad does not make it obvious if the Kelly brothers were accountable for the fictional situation. At the starting, two individuals in an Amazon cafeteria converse about the hurdles of using Alexa in different platforms.
