I like Bill Hader and the commercial is alright.... but I don't care for Apple using celebrity endorsements. I feel it cheapens the brand. I'm supposed to want this product/service/etc... because some random comedian is on a commercial?

At least they are showing off a semi useful feature (though reading emails is way easier and quicker than having them dictated)
Apple has used celebs for their commercials for over 15 years or more. Get over it.

The direct objective is to entertain you. Not sell you a specific object.
