Alexa is about to get a major attitude overhaul. 

Amazon just released its first celebrity voice for Alexa, which replaces Alexa's voice with the voice of Jules Winnfield himself, Samuel L. Jackson. Even better, you can currently get the Samuel L. Jackson celebrity voice for just $0.99. The price will increase to $4.99 at the start of the new year.

After purchasing the skill, you'll be asked to enable (or disable) explicit content. (You can toggle between the two at anytime via the Alexa app). You then need to ask Alexa to "introduce you to Samuel L. Jackson" to get the skill to kick in. 

Once it's set up, you can have Jackson answer your Alexa queries for weather, music, and more. You can also ask specific questions about Jackson related to his career and specific roles.   

Unfortunately, Jackson's voice isn't a complete Alexa voice replacement. The skill has a lot of limitations. For instance, you can't use Jackson's voice to set reminders, create shopping lists, or read you the day's news. Likewise, he can't order you a Royale with Cheese. However, for a buck, it's an inexpensive way to breathe new life into your Alexa device.
