    Samsung executives reportedly had to teach the lovable talk show host :jj: how to use a Galaxy Note 3 before the Oscars, according to the Wall Street Journal. And it’s a good thing too: Ellen’s Samsung-sponsored selfie got the company some prime advertising that’s perhaps worth more than the $20 million the WSJ estimates the tech giant spent on ads during the Oscars.

    That’s because the lame attempt at proving that celebrities are just like us! turned out to be the most retweeted photo in history. And the WSJ confirms what we probably all already knew -- the seemingly organic moment between Ellen, Bradley Cooper, Meryl Streep and pretty much every other famous person alive was basically product placement.

    Samsung apparently needs the help looking cool. As New York Magazine’s Kevin Roose points out, there’s no shortage of stories about celebs actually using iPhones when they’re supposed to be shilling for Samsung (Ellen included). Even a UK judge noted that Samsung’s Galaxy tablet is just "not as cool" as an iPad in a ruling declaring shoppers would never confuse the two devices...

    Fuck everyone who retweeted that shit.

    She should have shoved it up her twat before taking the photo; it would have added a lovely shade of reddish-brown and a touch of green

    Smart move on Samsung's part. Ellen kind of ruined it by tweeting backstage on her iPhone.

    On the "E" red carpet show, they were pushing the tablet. Front and center. Before every commercial, they held them up and talked about how great it is.

    The best thing about that was Lupita's brother crowbarring his way into the front of it. His poor, Academy Award winning sister can barely be seen in the back. Beth would have done the same thing. I can't imagine the brother was part of the staged event.
