Ellen DeGeneres, call your home office.
The television host's star-studded selfie at this year's Oscars may have broke Twitter's all-time retweet record, but a new photograph will give it a run for its money. Literally.
Business leaders at the helm of the world's biggest companies got in front of a camera Tuesday at Walmart's Sustainability Product Expo, leading to what might be called the world's most valuable selfie.
The combined market cap of the eight companies represented by the CEOs recognizable in the Walmart's tweeted photograph? $1.07 trillion.
Here are the names of the business men and women in the picture, along with their companies' market caps:
1. John Bryant, CEO, Kellogg Company: $24.1 billion
2. Doug McMillon, CEO, Walmart: $257.4 billion
3. AG Lafley, COB, President and CEO, Procter & Gamble: $224.4 billion
4. Kees Kruythoff, President, North America, Unilever: $72.6 billion
5. Hugh Grant, Chairman and CEO, Monsanto: $58 billion
6. Indra Nooyi, Chairperson and CEO, PepsiCo: $131 billion
7. Denise Morrison, President and CEO, Campbell: $14.3 billion
8. Roberto Marques, Chairman, Consumer NA, J&J: $287 billion
(It should be noted that there is a ninth person on the left side of the photo that has been blocked from view.)
How does #CEOselfie compare with Ellen's selfie in terms of monetary value?
DeGeneres' tweet seen around the world, which featured more than 10 of Hollywood's biggest stars, was valued at as much as $1 billion to event sponsor Samsung, according to Publicis CEO Maurice Levy.
In other words, your move, Ellen.
