This video documents the first time I actually turned on My Friend Cayla. It starts with my efforts to download the appropriate apps to my iPad before showing footage of me putting batteries into the doll then turning her on. This video focuses on the conversation features of the doll in a place with no Wi-Fi and, well, some of it is unintentionally hilarious. She delivers her sentences in a flat unemotional voice that can be quite funny to listen. At times I would make the occasional snarky comments at the doll.

I’ve also set up a playlist of all of the videos in this series so you can watch the ones you’ve missed or even watch your favorites all over again.
