Aaron Paul Is Turning On People’s Xboxes Without Their Permission

A new advert is to blame.

1. Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul stars in a new advert for Microsoft’s Xbox One, but there’s a slight problem.

When Paul says “Xbox On” at the beginning of the ad it is causing people’s consoles to boot up using the Kinect voice sensor.

2. Reddit users seem to be finding the problem quite amusing.

5. People on Twitter have also been posting about the glitch.

HAHAHA omg. @aaronpaul_8 just turned my Xbox One via the Xbox advert. (Which triggered the IR blaster to switch my TV off..) Amazing.

So whilst @aaronpaul_8 was talking on the Xbox ad, he said "Xbox on" and my Xbox turned on. Aaron Paul turned my Xbox on.
