Really? The Big Papi Selfie with the President was a Paid Promotion [VIDEO]

David Ortiz, Big Papi, with the rest of the World Series champion Boston Red Sox yesterday (April 1) visited President Obama at the White House. He also stole the show when he asked the president to take a selfie with him. It seemed like just a wonderful, spontaneous moment. Not quite…


Well, according to Sports Business Journal, Big Papi signed a deal with Samsung to pull it off. Samsung confirmed that the company helped facilitate the selfie and promoted the photo on Twitter to the company’s 5.2 million followers.

This stunt was similar to the selfie Ellen DeGeneres pulled off during the Oscars.
