Siri Co-stars in New Ad with Dwayne Johnson

· · Cool Stuff Found

Dwayne Johnson is one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood, but that didn’t stop him from partnering with Apple on an epic commercial featuring the iPhone voice assistant Siri. The nearly four minute spot takes The Rock and Siri on an epic journey he calls the “biggest, coolest, craziest, dopest, most over the top, funnest” movie ever. The spot is called The Rock X Siri: Dominate the Day and you can watch it on Apple’s YouTube channel now. Ironically, asking Siri to show you the movie only brings up a list of Dwayne Johnson flicks.[Update: Bob LeVitus talks about this ad in his newest column.]

They then prepared a list of all of the valid questions and commands you can address to Siri, including inquiries about your contacts, web searches, the weather, alarms, timers, and much more.
