Michael Bay flees Samsung Presentation after Teleprompter Malfunctions at Consumer Electronics Show : worldleaks
No explosions here. The ‘Transformers’ director deserted Samsung Executive Vice President Joe Stinziano on the stage in las vegas after he found himself unable to ab-lib about the company’s curved 105-inch UHD TV
He should have used a perform double.
“Transformers” mega-director Michael Bay got stumbled up by a malfunctioning teleprompter during a Samsung press conference in Las Vegas Monday and fled the stage after he was unable to ad-lib his way out.
Usually related with on-screen explosions, his latest brush with bombing left Samsung Executive Vice President Joe Stinziano standing alone and stunned on the stage in front of hundreds of reporters at the Consumer Electronics Show in Sin City.
“Wow! I just blocked myself at CES,” Bay wrote in a follow-up blog post that stopped short of apologizing.
“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 stimulated to talk, that I skipped over the Exec VP’s intro line and then the teleprompter got lost,” he said.
“The prompter went up and down – then I walked off. I guess live shows aren’t my thing,” he wrote.
He closed by promising he’s still doing a “special curved screen experience” with Samsung and “Transformers 4” that will be traveling around the world.
His awkward show led to a flurry of Twitter posts and jokes.
“Wow, Michael Bay just walked offstage without saying anything. No prompter, no BAY. That’s the Michael Bay we keep hearing about,” Variety writer David S. Cohen, who was in the audience, wrote on Twitter.
“Obviously michael bay thought they could just fix it in post,” tweeted Matt Novak, a Los Angeles-based writer with Gizmodo.
