Last week, Samsung put a photo on its Twitter page encouraging its fans to share their own photos they took with the company's latest phone release, the Galaxy S8.

Got your hands on the Galaxy S8? Show us the first photo you took.

"Got your hands on the Galaxy S8? Show us the first photo you took," it wrote.

Some wholesome Samsung followers followed the directive dutifully, and shared some nice photos.

How sweet.

But of course, some people had to troll. Including one kid named Edward who wrote, "It was a dick pic."

@SamsungMobileUS It was a dick pic

Edward told BuzzFeed News he doesn't own a Samsung phone, and originally wrote the tweet just to "mess around."

"I have always enjoyed making jokes," he said. "The tweet holds no truth and I just wanted a few likes on my tweet."

However, whoever runs Samsung's Twitter account was ready for Edward with a simple, yet effective burn: πŸ”­.

People were screaming over the tweet.

@SamsungMobileUS @savEdward SCREEEEEAAAAAAAMMMMMMIIIIIINNNNNNGGGGG!

They couldn't handle the exquisite brand trolling.

"Looks like it's not just Samsung's phones giving people burns," wrote one person.

"I would expect nothing but top notch dick humor from a company that is notorious for shipping devices prone to premature explosions," said another.

The tweet soon went super viral and spread far and wide.

Some people even said they were inspired to buy a Samsung phone because of it.

@SamsungMobileUS I'm taking my iPhone and trading it in for an S8 just because of this tweet

"I'm switching to samsung just because of this tweet."

As for Edward, he has a great sense of humor about getting roasted by a brand.

Samsung just roasted me πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

"It's been actually pretty funny and I love the attention," he said. "There's nothing Samsung, or anyone, could have said that would have offended me. It's been great having my 15 minutes, and I wouldn't mind getting roasted again."
