Shout-Outs: Zooey Asks Siri

It’s no secret that I love me some Zooey Deschanel.

I’ve written countless rambling tomes in her honor and she currently resides in the vaunted number two spot on ” the list.”

That having been said, I can’t help but find her to be easy fodder for comedy on the heels of her recent iPhone commercial.

You know the one…


Now don’t get me wrong, she’s super cute—as always—in the commercial, but from the second she asks “Is that rain?” I’m immediately wondering why she agreed to do the commercial.

First of all, it’s blatantly raining. There’s no doubt about it.

Secondly, she has not only a gigantic picture window, but two of the biggest eyes on the planet. There’s certainly no way she can’t see that it’s raining for herself.

The whole thing makes Zooey look just a little too much like an airhead for my liking, but hey, it’s her paycheck not mine. She can do what she wants to earn it.

The ridiculousness of the commercial coupled with the fact that in 2012 everything is immediately dissected and milked for all it is worth, led to the inevitable Twitter parody account: Zooey Asks Siri.

Basically, it is a bunch of equally ridiculous questions from “Zooey” to Siri.

Undoubtedly, it’s the type of thing that will go from being funny to played out within a week or so, as is the nature of the internet, but for now here’s a few of my favorites.
