(WFLA) – Big Mouth Billy Bass is back just in time for Christmas this year with a new twist – he can now connect to Alexa.
The animatronic singing fish first became a craze in the late 90s and early 2000s. With just the press of a button, the mounted fish would start signing and wiggling along to songs like “Take Me to the River” and “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.”
While the new version still has the red “start” button, it will also respond to Alexa voice commands.
The product description on Amazon says it lip syncs Alexa’s spoken responses to inquiries about the weather, news and random facts. It also reacts to timers, notifications and alarms, and will dance along to the beat of music.
All you have to do is pair Billy Bass to your device via Bluetooth and “let the fun begin,” according to the online description.
The new Billy Bass is available to pre-order now on Amazon. It costs $39.99 and will officially be released on Dec. 1.
