Ellen DeGeneres Got Busted Backstage At The Oscars Using Her iPhone Instead Of That Selfie Samsung! Product Placement FAIL!

It was the selfie seen ‘round the world, but did you pay any attention to the phone that took it??

We doubt many did but the cellie Ellen DeGeneres used to capture this star-studded shot at the Oscars was a Samsung Galaxy.

Makes sense – Samsung was a major corporate sponsor of last night├óΓé¼Γäós Academy Awards and probably planned this A-list moment.

But while it was an Android that Ellen was using on stage, backstage she was caught tweeting from her trusty iPhone!

Uh ohs! Ya busted!

Ch-ch-check out the proof in this other selfie that Ellen took with Channing Tatum!

That tweet went out from her Apple device, NOT the Samsung phone that her sponsors probably wanted her to use throughout the entire ceremony!

Keep in mind, Ellen is a well known Apple fan! She even created her own iPhone and iPad game app called Heads Up!

So we blame Samsung on this one!

We also can’t help but wonder what other HIGHlarious moments were all just one big commercial!

Was Big Mama’s & Papa├óΓé¼Γäós just trying to sell us pizza too?!

Wellll, it worked because we just about ate our weight in slices last night!


Guess this is the age we live in now: product placement can come at anytime, anywhere!
