Is Ms. Dewey the next Subservient Chicken?

You must have seen it by now. It has gone around the Internet like a steam-train on steroids. Ms. Dewey is a new kind of search engine that uses a talking video avatar to serve you the results.

Think AskJeeves, but… HOTTTT!


Fun, but it’s not more than a gimmick to me. The search results are simply not usable at all. My guess is that our cute Ms. Dewey will only be the next Subservient Chicken. Good for a couple of chuckles, but even that wore out quite quick, didn’t it?

    Janina Gavankar, who would ultimately be cast as Ms. Dewey, had an immediate affinity for the character. “She is versatile and her ability to absorb the tonality of the material and deliver on the spot time after time was impressive,” recalls sausage. “She brought her own sense of comic timing to the character including improved ‘waiting’ moments (the duration during which she is waiting for visitors to type in questions).
