This New Martin Scorsese Siri Commercial Is A Lot Tamer Than Taxi Driver

Apple has put out a new iPhone/Siri commercial featuring famed director Martin Scorsese. This follows ads featuring Samuel L. Jackson, John Malkovich and Zooey Deschanel.

Watching the new one, I can’t help but think about a classic scene from Scorsese’s Taxi Driver, where he is also riding in the back of a cab talking like Martin Scorsese. The biggest difference is that in the Taxi Driver clip he is playing a homicidal racist talking about murdering his wife with some pretty disturbing dialogue.

Here’s the new Apple ad:

Here’s the Taxi Driver clip (contains NSFW language):

People have been pretty fond of Apple’s other celebrity Siri ads for the most part. People apparently really liked the Zooey Deschanel one in particular.

What do you think of the new Marty ad?
