It turns out Siri hates moviegoers who try to text in a theater just as much as the rest of us. Well, in the world of the Alamo Drafthouse, at least.
That’s the message delivered in a new PSA-style video that’s the Alamo Drafthouse‘s latest salvo in the war on rude moviegoers. The creative clip, which will be shown ahead of screenings of Spike Jonze’s Her at the indie tastemaker’s theaters, uses the voice of Siri to send an anti-texting message.
Alamo enlisted the talents of Susan Bennett, the voice actor behind the voice of Siri. Viewers will hear Bennett’s voice respond to a jerkweed user who attempts to send a text from within one of the Alamo Drafthouse theaters.
You may have heard of this Austin, Texas based independent theater chain’s hardline stance against those who choose to disrupt showings of movies by attempting to text or conduct a phone conversation during a showing. You may also recall the (NSFW) PSA the Alamo released that was all about an angry voicemail left by a moviegoer who was bounced for violating the “no cell phone usage” rules Alamo has laid down.
