Ask Siri to play loud farts and you’ll get Rihanna (seriously)

Siri can be used to quickly access a huge library of sound effects. Ask it to play fireworks, a babbling brook, or even a machine gun and Apple’s digital assistance will pull out the perfect sound effect. But if you ask Siri to ‘play loud farts’ you’ll get an unexpected surprise.

Instead of playing loud explosions of someone passing gas, Siri jams out to Rihanna’s hit song ‘What’s My Name?’ feat Drake.


The Siri bug (or is it an Easter egg?) was discovered this morning by Mashable. We’ve verified the same thing happens on our iPhones, too. If you don’t have a Rihanna song on your iPhone but have an Apple Music account, Siri will just stream the song from Apple’s servers. However if you change the phrasing to ‘play fart sounds’ Siri pulls up the correct sound effects.
