During a recent appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show, comedian Robin Williams shared his experience using Siri in France. Williams imagines the French version of Siri having a far more sarcastic tone than we would ever hear in the American version.
His entertaining spoof performed almost entirely with an over-the-top French accent, ultimately turns into a cutting commentary on a culture consumed with living an "iLife" through iPhones and iPods. A modern obsession that is replacing the use of our brains.
"Look around you, why must you ask a phone? Live your life!" Williams shouted with a French accent. "Taking pictures with your phone? Look... look and then paint".
iPhone 4S with Siri $600. A French Siri impression? Priceless!
