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.”
