CRINGE! Director Michael Bay flees the stage after teleprompter fail

He was at the Samsung live event to promote a new TV.

TRANSFORMERS DIRECTOR MICHAEL Bay is used to special effects making his projects look the business, so when he was faced with nothing but a teleprompter and a live audience it was a recipe for disaster.

Bay was at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, helping Samsung to promote its new curved TV when a teleprompter fail made him turn on his heel and leg it off the stage.

Bay has posted an explanation to his personal blog, explaining that live shows just aren’t his thing:

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.

Now, can we get you some ointment for that pulled cringe muscle?
