Samsung Re-imagines Famous Self-Portraits as Selfies

010515 samsung selfies

A self-portrait painting from centuries ago is the predecessor of the selfie. Samsung cleverly capitalized on this fact in recent ads for its NX mini camera. In the ads, Vincent van Gogh, Albrecht Dürer and Frida Kahlo use the camera to take pictures of themselves, which turn out to be their famous self-portraits, as you can see in the camera display screen. To enhance the camera advertisements, Samsung adds a witty slogan about the camera, how it is “for self-portraits, not selfies.”
