There is no time like Christmas for kids. Essentially winning the lottery every year, it's a joy to see the children in our family anxiously await Santa Clause the way that we as grown adults anxiously await each new installment in the Star Wars franchise. And although adults might generally not be gifted action figures and dolls at Christmas, adult "toys" like video games and gadgets are just as exciting. But what happens when the actual kids attempt to play with the grown up toys? Sometimes disaster, and sometimes pure magic.

Case in point: a new video that has quickly gone viral. We see a young boy ask an Amazon Echo Dot to play one of his favorite songs, and things quickly go awry. Instead of playing a little diddy called "digger digger", it instead began searching for porn titles. You have to see it to believe it.

If you listen closely, you can almost hear the steam erupting from this little boy's parents. Things almost got very real for the kid, but luckily it appears that the adults in the room managed to stop Alexa before it managed to ruin anyone's childhood. Thank goodness for that.

The Amazon Echo, and the new Echo Dot, is designed to be a digital assistant that is always listening for commands. But as cool as you can look by instructing the speaker to order something from Amazon or play your favorite artist, the Echo isn't totally without its fault. The device can sometimes misinterpret your requests, or even completely ignore her name. Alexa is a fickle lady, and it's apparently a device that should be closely monitored when in the presence of children. Because as much as she'd be happy to tell them a joke, she can also apparently lead them toward a path of sexual perversion. That's one badass lady.

The Amazon Echo has been a hot button Christmas gift for the past few years. Largely because of a fantastic marketing campaign starring Alec Baldwin, it seems like every house needs the little device to call out to on a whim. And for those households that rely heavily on Amazon Prime, it can easily synch into their routine. With so many people being gifted the Echo and Echo Dot, I guess it's important to monitor the device around kids.

Overall, it appears that no harm occurred in this video- making it a hilarious one that has quickly accrued tons of views. The change in mood from joy to pure horror is hilarious, as well as how clueless the kid is to the problem. He wants to hear his favorite song, and he wants it now. And as far as viral holiday videos go, this is as about as harmless as you can get.
