Check Out Robin Williams’ Impersonation of Siri on Ellen [Video]


Robin Williams is one of those comedians that has wit as quick as lightning. During his appearance on Ellen in late November to promote his new movie Happy Feet Two, he gave his best impersonation of Siri, everybody’s favourite personal assistant.

When Ellen brought up the subject of Siri and the iPhone, Robin went off and did his ‘thing’. I won’t spoil it for you–check out the video below:

Robin Williams noted he is ‘fascinated’ by the iPhone 4S and admitted he uses Siri often in a recent interview with Associated Press:

AP: As a big technology buff, what gadgets or games are you into at the moment?

Williams: I’m fascinated by the new iPhone. I bought it and kept trying to use it in France. “Siri, what is a good restaurant?” (In a robotic voice.) “I’m sorry, Robin. I can’t give locations in France.” ”Why, Siri?” ”I don’t know.” It’s like she was upset with the French or something. “They seem to have an attitude I can’t understand. Should I look for Germans, Robin?”

Good ol’ Robin Williams.

    So… was the last time when Robin Willimas was funny really 1993?

    Nope, I’d say right now.   “You idiot, you’re in France.  Walk down the block, look around!  Live your Life!”.  Robin Williams is still able to make fun of the direction of society (our current direction he is inferring is reliance on tech rather than exploring our own world) while making us laugh.  I’d say he definitely still has it.
