To celebrate Mother’s Day, the team at The Daily Dot tracked down the real-life voice of Siri, and put her to work giving motherly advice to a real-life human.

On the one hand, it‚Äôs fun to imagine a world in which Siri is your mom: totally practical, but useless at small talk. But it‚Äôs also a little eerily creepy. Digital assisstants are already ‚Äúlike a member of your family‚ÄĚ; why not do away with the family altogether? At least Siri won‚Äôt get mad if you forgot to buy her flowers today. [YouTube]
