Cookie Monster & Siri Pitch the iPhone in Fun New Apple Commercial [Video]
Apple has started running a fun new iPhone commercial focusing on the hands-free Hey Siri feature, as it’s being used by none other than Cookie Monster from Sesame Street fame.
In the TV advertisement, Cookie Monster is making cookies (of course) and uses Hey Siri to set a timer on his iPhone 6S for the time it takes to bake the cookies. Cookie Monster again uses Hey Siri to start playing a music playlist featuring the song “Time in a Bottle” by Jim Croce, as Cookie Monster becomes increasingly impatient and fidgets around the kitchen, before using Hey Siri yet again to check the time remaining on the timer.

The full song from the iPhone Cookie Monster commercial is the 1973 Jim Croce hit “Time in a Bottle”, also embedded below for your enjoyment:
This is a fun TV spot and it does a good job of keeping you entertained while showing off the features of iPhone and Hey Siri. It also reminded me of the “Me Want It (But Me Wait)” kids song by Cookie Monster from Sesame Street, a song about the importance of patience, self regulation, and waiting for things, perhaps like wanting cookies to bake faster, or like wanting an iPhone. That song, which has nothing to do with the Apple commercial aside from featuring cookies and Cookie Monster, is also embedded below, simply because if you’re already watching Cookie Monster videos and Jim Croce songs, why not watch another entertaining video?
Apple has since followed up the Cookie Monster Siri commercial with a second “behind the scenes” video for the iPhone commercial, also embedded below:
What do you think of the Cookie Monster iPhone commercial? Good? Great? Does it make you want cookies? Oh and by the way, if you’re going to cook with an iPhone or iPad, we recommend placing it in a zip locked bag to protect it from your kitchen ingredients while cooking and baking.
