Aaron Paul’s husky tones are proving to be a bit of a turn on in living rooms around the world. But it’s not just his performances in shows like Breaking Bad that are getting people hot under the collar.
Paul is currently starring in a TV advert for games console Xbox One, and a number of users have reported that when he utters the words “Xbox on”, it activates the device’s Kinetic voice/motion sensor, causing the Xbox to switch on.
Reactions have been mixed, with some gamers apparently enjoying their living room interactions with the star and others just finding the phenomenon annoying…
HAHAHA omg. @aaronpaul_8 just turned my Xbox One via the Xbox advert. (Which triggered the IR blaster to switch my TV off..)
Xbox manufacturers Microsoft declined to comment on the reports when contacted by the BBC earlier this week but pointed out that this was not the first advert to feature voice commands. Last November one user posted a YouTube video showing that an ad featuring the phrase “Xbox go to Dead Rising 3” opened the game.
Are you an Xbox One user? Do you find Aaron Paul’s voice a turn on? There’s only one way to find out…
