Hippo Insurance x Amazon

As part of a collaboration between Hippo Insurance and Amazon, I worked with MSCHF on the launch of the Alexa “Away Mode” skill. This tongue-in-cheek home security feature works by playing extremely long awkward or mind-numbingly boring conversations to dissuade intruders from breaking in.

I concepted and wrote the script for one of the away mode tracks, “Couple Has Breakup While Trying to Watch TV.”

“Away Mode” has generated plenty of discussion on the internet, including praise from PC Mag, USA Today, and TechCrunch.
