Apple Runs Siri Ad, “Thank You Speech” with Neil Patrick Harris

May 9, 2016 - 5 Comments

Siri in the Neil Patrick Harris commercial

Apple has released a new iPhone ad emphasizing the devices hands-free Hey Siri feature.

In the commercial, celebrity Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser, remember that show?) asks Siri to read an acceptance Thank You speech for some unknown award, and then lip-syncs the response from Siri.

Apple calls the ad: ‘Thank You Speech’ and included the following blurb with it on YouTube: “With Hands-free Siri on iPhone 6s you just say, “Hey Siri,” and Siri’s there to help you with pretty much everything.”

The commercial is running now, and has been embedded below for easy viewing:

Siri is a great perk to using an iPhone, and the hands-free ability is extra useful. If you’re having a less-than-successful experience with the feature, try voice training Hey Siri for better results.

Apple has been fairly aggressive with commercials lately, releasing a wide variety of ads for their various products.

  1. Doogie Howser, MD says:

    The most unbelievable part of Doogie Howser MD was that his name was Doogie. Who is named Doogie? Come on.

    And what a show of the 80’s and 90’s, the world was in such calm and peace that you could have a TV show about child prodigies. We all know the trash that permeates the airwaves now, which has vacuumed in politics and every other sordid waste possible. What a world we have arrived at. Hey, at least we have an iPhone with Siri, right?

      The most unbelievable part of this story is “(Doogie Howser, remember that show?)”. Neil Patrick Harris isn’t known for Doogie Howser, he’s moved on to be a successful entertainer. In fact, younger generations reading this are likely to NOT remember that show. My point is, that tidbit was unnecessary.

      I woke up with no hot water and haven’t had coffee yet, I apologize for my negativity.

    Every iOS user just wishes Siri worked like An Apple commercial.

    Sir for me does time and temperature perfectly. Anything else? LOL Sorry d***** – I’m not sure what you said, mean etc…

    Siri is a huge lump of coal for iOS.

      Don’t know what your issue is. I use Siri for my lights, locks, car and more. No problem.

      I feel ya…I basically have an iHouse (3 ATV, 2iMac, 6iPhone, 3iPad) I received the Amazon Echo for my birthday 🙄. Soon after I realized Alexa is way hotter than Siri! She’s younger, smarter, faster…and she really gets me! I may ask her out soon, I just don’t want Siri to hear. 😬
