U2 meets Siri

by Bruce Kasanoff on October 24, 2011

It’s been a long day. Please excuse me for wondering aloud what might happen if I put my Siri-equipped iPhone to my ear while U2′s Vertigo started to play a bit too loudly in the background…

Uno, dos, tres, Catorce!

SIRI: would you prefer to speak Spanish?

Turn it up loud, captain

SIRI: You got it, baby. (turns iPhone volume to full)

Lights go down, it’s dark

SIRI: I have adjusted the display. (turns iPhone brightness to full)

The jungle is your head

SIRI: You got that right.

Can’t rule your heart

SIRI: I have no heart. So sad.

a feeling so much stronger than
a thought

SIRI: You mean like a… calculation?

Your eyes are wide
And though your soul

SIRI: No soul either

It can’t be bought
Your mind can wander

SIRI: Actually, for $199 you can own me lock, stock and barrel.

Hello, Hello (¡Hola!)

SIRI: Hello, Hello (¡Hola!)

I’m at a place called Vertigo (¿Dónde está?)

SIRI: locating Vertigo, near Jerez de la Frontera, Spain

It’s everything I wish I didn’t know

SIRI: Still loading

Except you give me something i can feel,

SIRI: It’s just a map

The night is full of holes

SIRI: Repeat, please

As bullets rip the sky

SIRI: Dialing 911 now

Of ink with gold

SIRI: Repeat, please

They twinkle as the
Boys play rock and roll

SIRI: Opening iTunes

They know that they can’t dance

SIRI: Locating music with no beat

At least they know…

SIRI: I have a headache. Going to sleep now.
