John Malkovich Appears In Two New Siri Commercials

John Malkovich is the latest celebrity to engage Siri in a conversation during two commercials posted by Apple on its official YouTube channel. In both adverts for the iPhone 4S, Siri is the most chatty, leaving John Malkovich to barely slip in a few words.

The first ad, titled "Joke", shows the actor having a drink, listening to opera and having a calm evening. So calm that he only ask Siri one-word queries: "weather," "evening," "linguica" and "joke."

He is very amused by Siri's notorious joke with two phones entering a bar, revealing Apple's sense of self-irony. The second ad, "Life", leaves Siri even more room to outshine her famous partner.

When Malkovich says rather bored the word "life", the digital assistant replies with the also famous line from Monty Python's almost thirty-year old British movie, The Meaning of Life.

"Try and be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book every now and then, get some walking in, and try to live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations," suggests Siri.

Before John Malkovich, Samuel L. Jackson was featuring in Siri commercials but at the time, the message was more focused on specific functionalities of iPhone 4S' digital assistant.
