Samsung executives reportedly had to teach the lovable talk show host 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... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/...axy_n_4897396.html?ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000063 Fuck everyone who retweeted that shit.
