SAN ANTONIO -- Days after proving to the country he can deliver a speech, San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro proved he can also deliver a joke.
In a video shot for the San Antonio Society of Professional Journalists' Gridiron show, the mayor is seen twirling around in his chair, sorting through his schedule and asking Siri -- the iPhone assistant -- a few serious life questions.
It's not the mayor's first comical video short. Earlier this year, he put Charles Barkley in his place when the NBA commentator once again trashed the River Walk and the women of San Antonio. This time, however, he's taking jabs at his twin brother, Texas state Rep. Joaquin Castro, and having fun with local politics.
"Who has more gray hair, me or Nelson Wolff?" Castro asked.
"You don't want to know," Siri responded.
"Life?" the mayor pondered.
"Drink more tequila. Read some trashy novels. Get a tattoo. Basically, be more like Joaquin. And if someone encourages you to live in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations, tell them to stop drinking the Obama socialist Kool-Aid," Siri responded.
Finally, Castro asked Siri the question that many people have been wondering since took the national stage at the Democratic National Convention last week:
"Should I run for higher office?"
"Ay mijo! Of course you should. You were just in the national spotlight. Your mama would slap you with her chanclas for asking such a question. Must we make all of your decisions?"
A smiling Castro then settles back in chair and thanks his Siri for all of her help. The phone's screen shows a photo of Eva Longoria.
"You're welcome, Mr. Presidente," Siri said.
The event, put on by past and present members of the San Antonio media, raises money for scholarships that are handed out by the San Antonio chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.
