Amazon’s TV ad during the Super Bowl has people wondering if the company dropped a big hint about which city it will pick for its second headquarters.

The ad featured “Alexa” losing her voice while delivering the weather report for Austin, Texas. Since the ad aired on Sunday night, it has gone viral, with speculation rampant as to whether Amazon was hinting that Austin will host its second headquarters.

In January, Amazon said Austin was one of 20 cities it is considering for its second headquarters out of 238 bids from cities across North America. Amazon is expected to announce its final decision in 2018.

Meanwhile USA Today's Ad Meter declared that Amazon's ad was the favorite Super Bowl ad for 2018.
