Red Sox star David Ortiz signed deal with Samsung just one day before he shot selfie with Obama
When the White House photographer was about to snap a group picture, Ortiz interrupted and asked if he could take one of his own. The selfie of Ortiz and Obama had over 40,000 retweets at last count, far fewer than the millions that retweeted Ellen's now famous Oscar selfie. That picture set the record for the most popular tweet ever, ironically replacing one of the president and the First Lady embracing after he won his second four year term in office. Samsung quickly retweeted the Ortiz-Obama selfie to its 5 million members.
A White House official said that the president had no advance knowledge of Ortiz' decision to take a selfie with him. Samsung later confirmed its relationship with "Big Papi." Ironically, the president sided with Apple and against Samsung last year in a case involving the ITC. Apple faced injunctions against some of its devices including the Apple iPad 2, Apple iPhone 4 and other models. Under the law, the president can veto the sales ban, which he did.
