This Horrible Selfie Schtick Ellen Degeneres Is Doing Is Sponsored By Samsung
So reports The Verge, which observes that the phone she’s using is a Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Even without that little fact, the desperate begging to make the group shot the most retweeted ever would have been irritating. But given that it’s for cash, it’s especially grating. Hopefully this will end up serving as a lesson to Samsung that it’s much more cool to go viral because you actually paid people to do something fun, creatively liberated, and interesting, than because you basically shoved a lot of cash in our faces. It’s a bad ongoing note in what’s turning out to be a somewhat flat, but generally inoffensive, performance.
