Nobody would ever accuse Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson of being lazy. Between starring in Oscar-winning films like Moana, heading up his own HBO show, and continually promoting various blockbuster movie roles, the former wrestler also somehow makes time to volunteer and spend hours per day in the gym. (Seriously, does the guy sleep?) So when Johnson announced that he was making a movie with Siri – the voice of Apple’s voice-command program – called “The Rock x Siri Dominate the Day,” it seemed only natural that he’d add another task to his already heaping plate.
The film, of course, isn’t a full-length movie; it’s actually a three-minute Apple ad, which deliberately pokes fun at The Rock’s busy schedule. As far as commercials go, it’s certainly entertaining; Johnson paints the Sistine Chapel, explores space, and pilots a plane among other outlandish tasks. But the multitude of reactions to this viral “movie” are the true entertainment here. Many fans were disappointed that The Rock is not the new voice of Siri, while others felt it necessary to point out that the veritable robot costar is still, at heart, the same old Siri. Check out some of the funniest responses below!
The Rock has done a Siri movie with Apple. It’s official, Apple has turned into an embarrassing dad https://t.co/sVsJHD1NSt pic.twitter.com/U0Jd4FLlwx

Why is this not the unveiling of @TheRock as the voice of Siri? Something I didn’t know I wanted, but now, more than anything, do. pic.twitter.com/oILNZSM1KR

Any response to the rumours of a real life on set romance between you and Siri? Or was it strictly professional?? #heySiri

I feel the need to go through and see if Siri can do everything The Rock did in that video.

Tim: “Let’s make a movie that rocks.”
Siri: “Calling The Rock…”

Not even @TheRock can take SIri to the next level. Kudos for trying though!
