Michael Bay embarrassed


Michael Bay.

8 Jan - "Transformers" director Michael Bay, who is known for making outlandish action films and being slightly unstable when it came to his emotions, left a Consumer Electronics Show presentation abruptly after 'freezing up' on stage.

The movie mogul was originally there to do a presentation of Samsung's new curved ultra-high-definition television.

A video surfaced online which shows that when Bay starts to speak, he then stops when the presenter speaks. Bay resumes speaking, then stops again, saying the teleprompter isn't working correctly.


Don't quit your day job, Bay.

In a statement posted online and confirmed by Bay's production company, Bay says, "I guess live shows aren't my thing."

Here is Bay's full statement:

"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"


Bay directed the first three "Transformers" movies, with "Transformers 4" due in theatres in June 2014.
