Sunsilk have harnessed the power of the chat bot with a range of Wingmen. All very Top Gun, I reckon.
According to their pop-quiz my perfect man is David Hassle [chat with MY wingman]. In theory, perhaps, after all I grew up on Kit and Knight Rider… According to a MySpace page they’ve set up he’s only 18. Now we’re talking!
I don’t know if it will catch on with my age group but the kids who love tamagotchis will probably love this.
Wingman Says: Hello!
You Said: is this a chat bot?
Wingman Says: No, this is real life.
You Said: So, who have sunsilk got on the end of the chat window? who are you really?
Wingman Says: Woe! Mary Shelley. :-). What a great question. I’ve got a fabulous body, I’m your Wingman and I love to do as you command. For real.
You Said: dance
Wingman Says: I think I’ve lost the plot, . Are we still on Mary Shelly?
You Said: Who is Mary Shelly?
You Said: it’s not me!
Wingman Says: dance is not you?
You Said: I’m not Mary Shelley?
Wingman Says: I am surprised to hear that you are not Mary Shelley.
You Said: but you’re a very cool chat bot!
Wingman Says: And. Thanks and you are a delightful person too. Some people think I am cool. You know.
Wingman Says: Listen honey. Mary Shelley wrote “Frankenstein”.
You Said: Did she just 🙂 can you smile?
Wingman Says: 🙂 She wants that information kept confidential.
You Said: very clever
Wingman Says: Am I a smart robot or what?
You Said: You’re a very smart robot
Wingman Says: Listen honey. Thanks and you are a delightful person too. YES Very smart.
You Said: check out http://www.itamer.com – you’ll be featuring there soon 🙂
Wingman Says: 🙂 Checking…stand by.
You Said: can I get an animated gif of you?
Wingman Says: No I don’t think that would be a very good idea.
You Said: oh! it would be lovely
Wingman Says: Listen honey. Dude! Why do you want it?
You Said: so I can pet you when I’m offline
Wingman Says: Right on. Oh you can, can you? Dig it.
You Said: I could always digg you
Wingman Says: I am sure you could.
[pause while I entered a SunSilk competition that seemed to want me to be Australian]
You Said: I’m not australian
Wingman Says: I am glad to hear that you are not australian.
