OMG! Meet the Woman Behind the Voice of Siri! Our Minds are Blown


“Siri, how’s traffic on the 405?”

“Siri, can you send my dad a text message?”

“Siri, where can I find pizza by the slice at 4 AM?”

Ah, who doesn’t love asking the iPhone’s butler, Siri, everything and anything? Siri, the voice of the iPhone’s intelligent personal assistant, helps users with directions, recipes, traffic reports, sports trivia, and a million other things. She seriously does everything. For my whole time as an iPhone user, I thought that Siri was just a computer generated voice. There was no way a real woman’s voice sounded like that! It was completely inhuman and robotic, which I guess was the point. How would they even get a person to say and record all of those things? I mean, Siri says a lot! It just didn’t seem possible.

Well, obviously I was wrong. Yesterday, a middle-aged woman from Atlanta by the name of Susan Bennett came forward to claim her fame as the voice of our beloved Siri. While Apple will not confirm this news, CNN went to investigate and came back with some very interesting news.

CNN hired an audio forensics expert to check out her claims, and he concluded that Bennett’s voice and Siri’s are “identical—a 100-percent match.” 100 percent match! Susan Bennet is Siri! Now every single time that I need to know what year Home Alone 2 came out, I can just ask Susan! It’s nice to put a face to a name, y’know?

Check out the video below to see Susan on CNN and to get your mind blown with her crazy robot voice! It’s seriously nuts. Check it out!
