Animatronic bartender.

Animatronic Bartender, West Of The Pecos Museum

With a precedented whole three points of articulation (eyes, right arm, and neck), "Jess" tells us about his namesake and a dastardly shooting that occurred when his bar opened in 1896. 2 sets of 120 seconds of recorded speech gives him voice. Of course a mention of the gift shop is included. His voice seems to change in the time it takes to activate him again.

Worth a stop in Pecos after fantastic Lunch at Guadalaja's Mexican and flat steak.
