Friday Free for All: Furby vs. Siri

I’ll be honest, I was hoping for a lot more back-and-forth banter between the iPhone 4S’s Siri and the Furby here, but the video made me laugh anyway. Turns out, Furbys are inherently hilarious. Or maybe it’s just me. Between this, the mechanical falcon in Your Highness, and the “Wafflebot” in the new Harold and Kumar movie, it turns out my funny bone has a real weakness for sentient animatronics.

After the jump, a mesmerizing combination of country folks and sword play.

That’s just a good video right there. But don’t be fooled into thinking it’s some home movie, it’s way too well composed not to be professional. Trust me, you don’t make a sword dance video like this on accident. I’ve tried.

Not that it matters whether it’s professionally made. This is so much more satisfying in an undefinable way than 99% of all bullsh*t video installation art put together. Dicknose in Paris excluded, but I think that goes without saying.
