  • Apple and Dwayne

This appeared to be an extended commercial, similar to what Apple did with Taylor Swift and Apple Music in 2016.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Siri, the iPhone's personal assistant, have teamed up to co-star in a new film. Dominating the day or not, Siri is definitely dominating the Hollywood now.

Following the release of the three minute and 45 second video on YouTube, the wrestling superstar went on to say it was "a insane fun commercial". The "movie" made quite an entrance with an over-the-top poster featuring automobiles, satellites, space, vehicle crashes etc.

It's one big promo for Apple's Siri, and you can bet it's the first of many with Apple looking to normalise the use of voice assistants as the HomePod launch draws near. Further, the movie depicts the many situations where Siri helps Rock in many scenarios like telling him reminders, suggesting routes while driving a auto, piloting a plane to Rome and doing a little renovation work at the Sistine Chapel.

Strong Easter helps Ryanair to 55% profit rise in Q2
The company attributed the growth in profit to the timing of Easter in first quarter, with no holiday period in the prior year comparative.


"I partnered with Apple to make the biggest, coolest, sexiest, craziest, dopest, most over the top, funnest movie ever made".

By the looks of his Facebook page, Johnson seems quite excited about the collab.

The film featuring the world's highest-paid actor is available for free on YouTube.

It would be a right time for Apple to pull up its bargain for its product 'Apple HomePod Siri Speaker', especially, when its release is due in the month of December 2017.
