Oh, no doubt someone at Samsung ordered an agency to, "Find some celebrities to endorse the phone." At that point, it's the ad agency's job to follow through and make sure the endorsement doesn't turn into an embarrassment.
The whole celebrity ad thing is weird anyway. For example, watching Zooey Deschanel dancing around the house when it rains did not make me want to buy an iPhone.
On the other hand, listening to Martin Scorsese, Samuel Jackson, and John Malkovich talk to Siri, did make me wish I that was temporarily deaf.
