Santa appears in latest Apple iPhone 4S ad, using Siri to help him make his deliveries
It is so obvious that we would bet that many of you thought about it weeks ago. The "it" we are referring to is a commercial that would feature Jolly Ol' Saint Nick using Siri to get directions as he flies across the Christmas sky with his bag full of presents. Of course, with Christmas a week away, Apple had the same idea that everyone else did and if you click on the video below, you will see the Santa uses Siri ad just in time to give you some holiday cheer.

Santa also uses Siri to check on the weather (14 degrees in Cleveland? Brrr!) and gets an email with a list of who has been naughty and who has been nice. Of course, Apple is exaggerating when the ad makes it seem that Siri is capable of keeping track of 3.7 billion appointments, but it is all in good fun and we doubt any Scrooges from the competition will file for a preliminary injunction against the ad.

It's a cute commercial, but the best Santa commercials this Christmas are the Best Buy spots. Those are truly funny.

Slow news day? It's hilarious how blogs need to replay commercials for Apple products all the time.

Yeah, it's a commercial, we'll end up seeing it a hundred times more before Christmas.

Lamest commercial ever.

I want to know though how Siri knows where Billy Grant lives. SIRI IS A STALKER

Not everyone is a Christian or subscribes to a Christmas tradition.
