Samuel L. Jackson and Zooey Deschanel star in new Siri ads [Video]

Mon, Apr 16, 2012


The man who got the damn snakes off a plane and who expertly played Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction has settled down a tad. Yep, Samuel L Jackson can now be seen using Siri to help plan a date night for an oh so special lady.

The following commercial is a Verizon production, but it’s interesting nonetheless that Verizon for a change isn’t touting its network as a means to hock the iPhone, but rather taking a page out of Apple’s own marketing playbook and advertising a specific iPhone 4S feature.

But wait, there’s more!

Also getting in on the action is actress Zooey Deschanel who stars in her own Sir-centric iPhone 4S ad, this time with Sprint appearing as the producer.

Making sense of the madness, MacRumors is now reporting that these ads are, in fact, Apple produced and that each carrier is getting its own commercial with its own celebrity.

It’s pretty rare to see Apple use celebrities in ads, and save for “I’m a Mac/PC” series, the last celebrity we can remember Apple using in an ad was Jeff Goldblum.

That aside, what do you guys think of the commercials? Personally, they seem a bit cheesy to me, especially Deschanel’s commercial.
