Hilarious parody of Zooey Deschanel's Siri ad surfaces

Hilarious parody of Zooey Deschanel's Siri ad surfaces
You’ve probably already seen Zooey Deschannel’s ad for the iPhone 4S, and the actress known for being cute and kind of dorky comes off a bit more on the dorky side, just enough to have the folks from Fnny or Die step up with their own version of the ad.

That’s where “Jooey Deschannel” comes in to show some of the absurd things in the original iPhone 4S ad. There for example, Zooey Deschannel comes up to a window and asks Siri whether it’s raining when it obviously is. A perfect thing to parody and you shouldn’t doubt - it’s in there. As are many other things, but bottomline is that it underscores that sometimes using Siri could be a dorky thing to do.

What about you, do you find yourself using Siri now that time has past after the initial hype?

Funny parody. I saw the ad for the first time last night, wasn't impressed. The Samuel L Jackson one works better overall, but the fact that apple is still trying to push such a gimmicky feature as siri as the phone's selling point is pretty weak, IMHO. I downloadeda few siri-like programs for Android (despite its excellent native voice control) and only used one once. Then I uninstalled them and went back towards using apps on the desktop or voice search

That's because it's Samuel L. Jackson. Everything works better when he's involved. He's cooler than the other side of the pillow. That lucky woman coming over for date night is gonna get some life changing loving.

I was disappointed by the lack of 'Snakes on a Plane' references in his commercial.

Anyone else notice that Siri does not use her name even though it's clearly on the screen? It probably cannot say Zooey correctly so they cut it out. Not really a big deal IMO.

My coworker at work uses Siri all the time to make appointments and it's so noisy and annoying. I wonder what are they doing with their other fingers? It's weird since the New iPad came out, people at work with iPhones changed their ringtone to Apple "Mumbo" ringtone to let everyone around them know that they have an iPhone.

Oh jeez! I'm sorry about the ringtone thing. I hear their ringtones and want to shoot myself! So long for being different these days.

Your workplace sounds extremely annoying. I'm glad I don't work there with those idiots. If you're sitting in front of a computer it's much faster to make appointments with google calendar or even... dare I say...iCal. Google calendar is better tho because it has greater compatibility with other calendars. iCal, and anything Apple, likes to close itself off to others.

you do know google calendar is fully integrated with the iphone/ipad right? as is most of google products... so comparing iCal to Google calendar is pretty idiotic.

Most people who have iphones/ipads use iCal because it is the default.

I dunno, I kind of like the Rainy Day ad. It's cute and funny in a way. Zooey is just so likable. :)
