A month ago, Twitter user Nick Kocher, a writer for Saturday Night Live from New York, lost his coat. That coat just happened to have an envelope addressed to his apartment along with his keys in the pockets. Rather do the sensible thing and change the locks, he installed a Nest security camera so that whoever had the coat wouldn't be able to "murder [his] face off."
Weeks go by, no break-ins, no murdering of me, nothing.— Nick Kocher (@NickKocher) December 13, 2017
Fast forward a few weeks and Kocher has to leave town, and he lets his friend, Jon Bass, crash at his space. The interesting thing about a Nest security camera is that it texts you a video every time someone enters views.
So as any good friend would do, Kocher decided to spy on Bass.
Now listen. Am I a bad person for watching this without telling him? Legally speaking....yes.— Nick Kocher (@NickKocher) December 13, 2017
And then Kocher discovered that he can project his voice through the Nest. It goes without saying that he decided to have some fun...
Sidenote: Wondering why Jon was calling me “Mike”?— Nick Kocher (@NickKocher) December 13, 2017
When we first met, he called me “Nick”.
But as time passed, “Nick” became “Nicholas” which became “Nicklis” which became “Chicklis” which became “Michael Chiklis” which became “Michael” which became “Mike”.
Confused? So am I.

Well that turned out OK in the end.
