A new iPhone app called LuckyFortune now gives you a fortune cookie in your pocket. You can shake it and the cookie rolls around (real video, not CGI, the company said) and breaks to the sound of (of course) a gong.
Then (yikes) this faux Chinese-y accent comes on and reads your fortune. It definitely doesn’t sound like a native Chinese speaker, just what someone who thinks a native Chinese speaker would sound like in English.
