Samuel L. Jackson and Zooey Deschanel star in Verizon's new iPhone 4S commercial, isn't called Siri on a Plane

Samuel L. Jackson uses Siri in new Verizon commercial, Zooey Deschanel helps out also

Apple and Verizon have teamed up and renewed the iPhone 4S ad run with their first celebrity commercial for the iPhone 4S. The TV spots star Samuel L. Jackson and Zooey Deschanel, Jackson's commercial features him acting out of stereotype, where he asks Siri to cancel golf, shop for dinner ingredients, and time his gazpacho.



The second ad features Zooey Deschanel and shows her using the iPhone 4S' Siri to ask her some questions, like reminding her to clean up her house and to play some music so she can dance. Both the ads are cute, but with Siri only working in certain countries, these ads really only apply to the U.S. mainly, which is most likely why Verizon teamed up with Apple.



Another thing, is why haven't Apple put these up on YouTube instead of someone recording it on their camera phone (iPhone?) off-screen. It just looks poor and brings the ad itself down. Watch them above, and let us know what you think in the comments.
