Michael Bay Storms Off Stage At CES Event After Teleprompter Issues [VIDEO]
At the CES Press Event earlier today, extreme action director Michael Bay was brought out to speak about Samsung's new 105 inch curved HDTV. Unfortunately, there were teleprompter issues and Bay decided he’d had enough and walked off stage.
Within hours of his public blow-up and the resulting publicity, Bay took to his website to give his side of the situation and play some damage control,
Wow! I just embarrassed myself at CES – I was about to speak for Samsung for this awesome Curved 105-inch UHD TV. I rarely lend my name to any products, but this one is just stellar. I got so excited to talk, that I skipped over the Exec VP’s intro line and then the teleprompter got lost. Then the prompter went up and down – then I walked off. I guess live shows aren’t my thing.
But I’m doing a special curved screen experience with Samsung and Transformers 4 footage that will be traveling around the world.
