Sorry for the bad quality.

Name the actor (in the clown photoshopped makeup)

Paper says name the character, not the movie. But see if you can name both

That's awesome that Google was right on all of those. Alarming that Alexa didn't understand the question. Kudos for thinking to conduct this experiment!

Some of them she said open the Alexa's app for Bing search. I counted that as a fail.

Technically heard this on a podcast, not from trivia night, but oh well. I asked it at work yesterday and it caused some big debates.

In a 64 count box of Crayola crayons, name the 4x 4-letter colors.

I gave credit at work for naming only 3 and bonus point for naming them all.
