Regarding 'Selfies'

Posted: Updated:

Just as we were all about to let out a "Awww" regarding David Ortiz's selfie picture with President Obama, it turns out Ortiz was hired by Samsung to capture that moment with his Galaxy 3 smart phone. Sound familiar? Yeah, Samsung used a similar publicity stunt with Ellen Degeneres during the Oscars.

What do you think, is this smart advertising? Or sly selfie trickery that leaves you feeling like THIS IS TOO MUCH?

I'd love to hear from you. I'm @JulieChang on Twitter. In the meantime, we're trying to set a retweet record of our own on @GDLA with this picture. (picture is on my Instagram @trulyjuliechang).

I promise we are not being paid by anyone for this genuine moment.
