While voice assistants can multi-task for you, like setting alarms and telling the forecast, a TV presenter recently found out it can also land you in an awkward position and contradict you.

As BBC meteorologist Tomasz Schafernaker was presenting weather updates for the snowfall in Minneapolis and Denver, US, he was unexpectedly interrupted by Siri — Apple’s virtual assistant — refuting his claim. “There is no snow in the forecast,” prompted Siri, leaving Tomasz red-faced.

While Schafernaker was flabbergasted by the unexpected contradiction, he immediately defended himself by saying, “Yeah, but it probably doesn’t know what place I’m talking about.”

The video was tweeted by the official handle of BBC weather along with a caption that read, “When you’re a weather presenter and your watch contradicts your forecast.” The video quickly went viral and amused many.
