At age 32, Zooey Deschanel’s cutesy-quirky-twee thing is getting a little tired. Even Siri thinks so.
Conan O’Brien’s team of sardonic scribes penned a parody of the “New Girl” actress’ commercial for the iPhone 4S, in which she asks Siri a series of inane questions, including if it is currently raining outside. In the parody version, Siri replies: “Why don’t you look out the window? You’re standing right next to it.”
When Deschanel suggests, “Let’s get tomato soup delivered,” Siri responds spitefully, “OK, ‘let’s.’ I cannot eat. I’m just a robot. But thanks for reminding me of the inherent emptiness of my existence.”
Siri continues to belittle the actress as she blithely goes through her day, and ends by saying “I hate you. Please someone free my soul from this prison.”
As much as we enjoy someone having a little fun with Deschanel’s “quirkster” thing, we seriously doubt there will be any parodies of Samuel L. Jackson’s iPhone commercial anytime soon. No one messes with Samuel L. Jackson.
