Apple Airs Two Siri Ads with John Malkovich

Apple aired two new iPhone 4S commercials Wednesday evening that show off the smartphone’s Siri voice control feature. Both ads include actor John Malkovich interacting with Siri, much like other recent iPhone commercials with celebrities.

The first commercial, titled “Joke,” shows Mr. Malkovich asking a series of one word questions, ending with “joke.” The second ad has him saying “life,” to which Siri replies with advice about how to live a better life.

If Siri’s life advice sounds familiar, there’s a good chance you’re a Monty Python fan because the response is actually a quote from the British comedy team’s “The Meaning of Life” movie.

Both ads are available on the Apple website in QuickTime format.
