    Nothing funny. Why are we hyping this? Just my 2 cents.

    I thought it was amusing. It's more like a Pinoy version of the U.S. talk show spoofs like those done by Ellen and Conan. And Pinoy comedy usually is hard sell. The jejemon part was the highlight for me.
    Funny that their point of view is that a Pinoy SIRI would be a maid or secretary from hell.
    I personally know the guy who did the voiceover. And I think it was at least technically well produced for a spoof ad. :D

    Same here. Could've been much funnier with better jokes. I did find the "mwah mwah tsup tsup" part funny though.

    To be fair the video was well made. The content did let it down though.

    I kinda laughed. Kaso after reading some comments, it made me think na baka corny lang ako thats why bumenta saken yung mga jokes.

    Different strokes for different folks I guess.

    Did'nt find anything to laugh about. Especially since my fave aunt's name is vangie. Its been making its rounds on fb and i marked it as spam or hid it from my view.

    Find it a bit funny, the video production was good (looks like they did planned it) but the content did failed on me

    but the story was a bit funny :D

    Just a bit OT: "DID" is always followed by the present tense of the verb. :)

    It sounds so fake. I don't know what's the hype all about. Though I must admit the first part of the video sounded legit.

    it has the same theme as those Eugene ? movies - the funny chubby actress. maybe that's why it's so funny for most people.

    I like the jejemon text and the snatcher "features" in the ad. those are the 2 scenes that stood out for me

    Excellent production values. Very good actors. One post asked if this was real. Gusto kong batukan. Whoever produced this, great job. One way or another, it promotes the iPhone 4S.

    It is a funny way of promoting the iPhone. I really liked it when that dude asked Vangie to call his "girlfriend".

    Agreed. I loved the pinoy corniness of the humor - it was actually very well executed (yes believe it or not corniness can be poorly done). I wish our TV mainstream sitcoms has this level of production value.

    i'm guessing people are put off by the 'irritating voice delivery', which sadly leads them to dismissing the production as a whole. i find it hard to believe though not being able to find an ounce of humor in its entirety. are people are getting too serious? or getting detached from reality? ;)

    this is the type of comedy that prevails in our country today. the type that made/makes movies by Vice Ganda, Eugene Domingo, et al massively successful (not that i watch those, Kimi lang!). 5k likes vs. 180 dislikes? wonder why :rolleyes:
