Video: Michael Bay Abandons Samsung's Press Conference

Posted By on Tue, Jan 7, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Big time Hollywood director Michael Bay was invited to Samsung's Consumer Electronics Show to promote some of their products on Monday, but something went horribly awry. Bay started answering simple questions about his work, but stage fright set in when his teleprompter shuts off less than a minute into the interview. You can see the Transformers director was getting anxious, so he just left the stage.

Bay issued a statement about what happen, and didn't bother issuing an apology.

From Bay's website:

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.

Michael
