Apple hid a delightful Easter egg on iPhones for The LEGO Batman Movie, the new animated film that is dominating the box office this week.

In the new film, the Dark Knight has his own helpful digital assistant that responds to voice commands. The voice for the computer is the same one as Siri on iOS, but when Bruce Wayne needs help he just says, “Hey ‘Puter” instead of “Hey Siri.”

Apple quietly updated Siri so that she responds to the command. Here are some of the hilarious replies.

Siri Easter eggs

Apple has dropped a number of Siri Easter eggs over the years for everything from Game of Thrones to Apple Watch.

While there’s a long history of funny things to ask Siri, this latest round of AI hijinks seems particularly timely. The LEGO Batman Movie, which features Will Arnett as the voice of the Caped Crusader, just got released February 10 in the United States.

Other LEGO Batman Movie Siri jokes?

The bat-reporters at Batman News discovered a couple other phrases that we weren’t able to pull up. Siri may also reply with the following phrases:

“You have a message from the Condiment King. It says ‘Pbbbffftttt!’

Welcome home, sir. I have your rom coms queued up, sorted by decade.”

Did your ‘Puter give you any other responses we haven’t seen? Let us know in the comments below.
