Google recruits Will Smith to flaunt the Pixel 3’s selfie mode

Google hasn’t really done much to market its Pixel devices. But after the Pixel 3 launched earlier this month, the company’s seemingly all in.

After an Eminem performance at the Empire State Building was part-filmed using a Pixel 3, Will Smith is the latest celeb to parade the phone.

Taking to Instagram, the Fresh Prince posted a selfie from the upper floors of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building.

While the snap is pretty impressive, the caption is 100% cringe.

“A thousand years from now, humans are gonna look at the Burj Khalifa the Same way we look at the Pyramids… like ‘How the hell did they build that?’. But then they’ll just look it up on YouTube. This #Pixel3 group selfie mode is Crazy!!” he wrote.

The post, a little over 18 hours old, has already received more than 2.4-million likes.

There’s no word on who else Google has lined up to peacock the Pixel 3, but its clear that the company’s serious about marketing its third generation Pixel devices.
