Before and After Depressing Fun with Google
"Daddy, how big is a Blue Whale?"
Before Google: "I'm not sure, let's write that down and go to the library tomorrow to look it up. We can stop for ice cream on the way home. I'd like to find out, too."
After Google: "Google, how big is a Blue Whale?"
"This is where mommy does a big whale noise."
Before Google: "Ok, tell me what she sounds like when she makes it, and I'll try to do it too."
After Google: "Google, what does a Blue Whale sound like?"
"Do whales sleep?"
Before Google: "I don't know- lets put that on our list of questions to answer during our adventure at the library tomorrow."
After Google: "Google, do whales sleep?"
I have to wonder why this girl is even asking her father- the stupid Google Answer Machine is right there on the table. Did the makers of this ad think that it would just be a little TOO obnoxious to have her interrupt her father by directly asking the stupid magic Google Answer Machine? Could it be that she just wants to have a conversation with her father to spread out this daddy-daughter moment, but the asshat just keeps sabatoging her efforts by instantly asking his Electronic Substitute for Brains and Initiative?
Could we be just a little more helpless and pathetic here?
