David Ortiz's selfie with President Obama was an ad, just like everything else

Everything cool on the Internet is an advertisement or a hoax (except for this, which is good and real).

Here is the selfie David Ortiz took at the White House on Tuesday.

39K+ retweets! Plus, here are 14 publications, including SB Nation, that embeded the tweet in an article.

This is a real statement from a real human on behalf of Samsung, via Boston Globe:
"We were thrilled to see the special, historic moment David Ortiz captured with his Galaxy Note 3 during his White House visit. It was an honor to help him capture such an incredible and genuine moment of joy and excitement."
Of course. This photo of genuine happiness is a genuine LIE.
