With everything happening in Hollywood these days, people are doing Google searches for all kinds of details related to their favorite stars. Now imagine if your search question about whether Will Ferrell plays drums was actually answered in a video by Will Ferrell? Yep, It's happening.
Google has launched a pilot program where it is letting celebrities answer frequently asked questions about themselves via video. The pilot program is starting small, with a limited celebrity list so far, including: Priyanka Chopra, Will Ferrell, Tracee Ellis Ross, Gina Rodriguez, Kenan Thompson, Allison Williams, Nick Jonas, Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, Seth MacFarlane, Jonathan Yeo and Dominique Ansel.
Right now, the special feature is only available in the United States and while using a mobile phone. Some questions you can ask:
- Can Tracee Ellis Ross sing?
- What is Geena Rodriguez's pet peeve?
- How many languages does Priyanka Chopra speak?
- What movie changed Nick Jonas' life?
- What does Keenan Thompson think about what makes something funny?
- Can Will Ferrell play drums?
Google is promising more to come, so keep asking questions of your favorite celebrities, but keep it light. You likely won't get any candid responses on certain topics from Kevin Spacey or Harvey Weinstein anytime soon.
