An incident occurred when a Boston Red Sox radio caster turned off the iPhone’s virtual assistant ‘Siri’ function because of Tampa Bay Rays center fielder Jose Siri.
MLB.com, the official major league media outlet, said on the 4th (Korean time), “Most iPhone users know how to activate the virtual assistant Siri. It’s called ‘Hey Siri’. Boston radio presenter Joe Castiglione unfortunately found a new way to make Siri work.”
Castiglione relayed the second game of the double header between Boston and Tampa Bay on the 4th and said in the top of the 8th inning, “So the runners are on first and second base. The outcount is still 1 company. The batter is Jose Siri,” he said. At that moment, Siri on Castiglione’s iPhone responded, and the relay seats became a sea of laughter. Doug Lain, who was broadcasting with Castiglione, said, “Wait a minute. Didn’t you hear something?” Upon learning that Siri on her iPhone answered, Castiglione said, “I didn’t ask you a question, Siri. It’s not that Siri, it’s that Siri,” he joked.
MLB.com said, “Obviously, the name of Tampa Bay’s 27-year-old center fielder, ‘Jose Siri’, is similar enough to ‘Hey Siri’. Perhaps it was too similar in terms of Castiglione’s pronunciation,” he said, highlighting an interesting episode. 메이저사이트
