Wait, but where does the phone go?

I feel like Ive seen a lot of Miley Cyrus lately. In both the corporate and the corporal sense.
Its inevitable, then, that someone might want to take advantage of the persona that shes chosen to put out there. And there. And there.
That someone is Samsung.
Not everyone is entirely convinced that Samsungs Galaxy Gear has inspired the world to wear a watch with a camera attached. So the companys UK arm decided to offer a tweet that attempted to get down and dirty with todays young, impressionable Snapchatters.
Naturally, it featured womens underwear. The size didnt seem large. The intent was 3XL.
For on the Samsung UK Twitter feed was an image of trim undergear, a picture of the companys Galaxy Gear and the words: "Hey Miley. You should have a look at our Gear."
In order to help you grasp the humor, a tagline offered: "For performers who usually have no pockets for a phone."
I know that many will be uplifted by this humor. Cyrus has been scantily and twerkily clad on almost every TV station known to the world of late.
Man buys clay iPad, gets put in jail for wanting refund On SNL, Kanye hates on Gaga Apple store genius When emoji just isnt enough, ubertxt Apple to start following you around its stores, report says Creepy Google Glass pics without anyone knowing? Yes, you can
The suggestion here, then, is that she could still receive her texts and alerts while twerking mostly naked.
I confess, though, to being a touch confused. I had imagined that your Gear works rather better if you have your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (or some other phones any day now) tucked into your (very large) pocket.
There is clearly no room for even a B flat in this skimpy undergarment.
So I wonder just how much joy Cyrus would actually get if she just wore her watch as she wiggled, waddled and wobbled.
Tenuous rumors are swirling that the Gear hasnt sold very well, so perhaps the idea of invoking a superstars underwear is a Hail Miley.
I wonder how many will be moved by the perception that wearable tech is perfect when youre not wearing very much at all.
