Michael Bay has a Meltdown at CES

Subscribe to TheFW on

Director Michael Bay had a bit of a meltdown after a teleprompter failed during a presentation of Samsung’s new 150-inch TV at CES in Los Angeles. The famed director of summer blockbusters such as ‘Transformers‘ and ‘Armageddon’ found that he couldn’t keep going after a teleprompter failed during a Samsung presentation. He was meant to have a scripted conversation about the TV, but instead had a meltdown and walked off the stage, apologizing to the audience.

He tried to wing it and said that he “tries to take people on an emotional ride,” but then lost his track of thought. He was even prompted to talk about the curve of the television and how it might help people better enjoy his movies, but he ended up walking offstage.

The video might be a little cringe-inducing and awkward, but you can check it out above in order to get the full effect.
