Amazon Echo: This Grandpa Likes “Valerie”

Aww. Here’s a very cute and wholesome spot for the Amazon Echo. A young man gets his grandpa the new Echo Show, explaining that he can use it to play music or check the weather. Grandpa seems uninterested though. Grandson helps out around the house, while singing “Valerie” to himself. Turns out that grandpa likes the song that goes “Valerie” (Mark Ronson and Amy Winehouse’s extremely fun version of “Valerie”), and the young man is pleasantly surprised.

    Who is the actor Grandpa?

  2. Lynne Coll ins says:

    Isn’t the grandson singing Steve Winwood’s ‘Valerie’ from 1982? Or else he’s a terrible singer of the Any Winehouse song.

      Thats’s the impression my wife and I got. The grandpa accidently played the wrong song called “Valerie”, because it sounded nothing like the one the young dude was singing.

      • joshw24 says:

        The young dude just sings kinda off-key. Do you really think he’d be listening to a Steve Winwood song from 1982?

      • thmarioxb says:

        Why not? We can’t listen to old songs? I had to go online and find what the song(s) were anyway. Never heard of any Valerie song besides the theme song to the sitcom named Valerie (then changed to Valerie’s Family and then The Hogan Family).

        He’s a younger millennial. Trust me, he’s singing Amy Winehouse’s “Valerie.” It’s very popular with our generation.

    Why doesn’t Alexa play the original version by The Zutons?

  4. James says:

    No, it’s not that Grandpa likes it, it is showing the Grandson a kindness using the thing he doesn’t like by having it play his song for him when he came home. For when the grandson had the reminder for the dessert for Grandpa.

  5. Your says:

    Terrible and annoying commercial

  6. Beth Long says:

    Love grandpa’s face when grandson returns

  7. Nancy says:

    Is grandpa played by Wally from Crocodile Dundee movies?

  8. Pat says:

    Who is the grandson?

  9. Jim Shorts says:

    Grandpa looks like Tony Shalhoub.

  10. Stelth says:

    I hate that commercial. The kid sings the song completely different from what it sounds like so it’s weird when the song actually plays. Also Amy Winehouse was a nasty drug addicted pirate hooker.

  11. Sherri Kerst says:

    Is this sweet old man the real grandad to this young man?

  12. Brad Whitlock says:

    I fully expected that when Granddad told Alexa to play “Valleri”, it would be the Monkees version. Because son knows one “Valerie” song, Granddad knows another, and “hey, look how Alexa adjusts to know that YOU want!”

  13. Lyle Keith Williams says:

    Are the Grandpa and Grandson in the Alexa “Valerie” commercial related in real life?
