A dad used his Alexa tech to catch out his son, who was partying and trying to sneak his friends into the house late at night – and the boy was in for a real shock
A dad caught his partying son trying to sneak friends back into the house with an epic Alexa prank.
The tech-savvy dad must have known his son would be out late and decided to play a joke to teach him a lesson, which was all captured on a home security camera.
Late in the night, a window slides open and the man’s son, named Jesse, can be seen climbing through – then a crowd of people follow.
But then, as the group are gathering, the lights turn on and Alexa reads out a long message from the dad, who goes by the handle Rhythmlessman on TikTok.

The message goes: “Hi Jesse, next time just say you want to go out so you don’t need to climb through a window with all your friends.”
“I hope you had fun, were safe, and didn’t c**p your pants when I started talking. I may go viral on TikTok for this, thanks for the content.”
Many of Jesse’s friends then burst out laughing as the son confronts his dad, through the security camera, while raising his middle finger.

He said: “F**k you, I love you, I love you. No, look at me. I love you, but f**k you.”
The video has been viewed more than 18 million times, and has the caption: “When you watch your son and his friends sneak out, you kinda have to f**k with them when they return.”
Many people commented on the video, with more than a few questioning the son’s behaviour.
One said: “How many people was he bringing back? Damn.”
And another added: “You should have switched the lights red, made them flash, and had a deep voice say, ‘intruder alert, police have been alerted, weapons activated’.”
Many people who watched the video discussed the son’s language to the dad, as one person added: “Some people have a close enough relationship with their parents that they can curse at them and the parents don’t mind unless its serious. This wasn’t.”
