Apple has debuted two new iPhone 4S Siri commercials on U.S. broadcast and cable networks. Both ads star the inimitable John Malkovich.
In both spots, Malkovich listens to opera and prompts Siri with one word commands.
In “Joke,” Malkovich utters only four words to Siri – “weather… evening… linguisa, joke” – before laughing and telling Siri, “That’s funny.” Siri asks, “Was it something I said?” to which Malkovich responds, “Yes, it was.”
In “Life,” Malkovich prompts Siri with “Life.” To which Siri responds, “Try and be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book now and then, get some walking in, and try to live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations.”
Malkovich says, to himself, “That’s pretty spectacular advice, actually,” and tells Siri, “Thank yo., I enjoyed this chat immensely. You were very eloquent.” Siri replies, “That’s nice of you to say.”
