So today started off with a lot of buzz about the new Samsung Galaxy tablets, set to be unveiled this afternoon. But it didn’t take long for Michael Bay to steal the show. If you watch the video above you’ll understand why.

Bay was supposed to be helping unveil the new Samsung curved screens when something went wrong with his teleprompter. So he walked off the stage.

Now, as Pepcom is about to begin at the Mirage, the hallways are packed with echoes of ‘Michael Bay, Michael Bay, Michael Bay.’ The tech buzz now lost to the famous director of ‘Transformers.’

    Ummm, real sad. Did he never do an extemporaneous speech before? C’mon.

    guess Bay can’t handle being in front of the camera.

  • Ken Lee

  • DrCarpy

    At least Bay was professional! He chose to exit stage left first, then pout and go apoplectic afterwards.

    Awesome! When we suckle at the teat of teleprompters, we have lost our ability to be human, and to talk.

    Why didn’t he just say, “teleprompter is broken and without that I have nothing to say. I don’t know sh!t about this phone and I don’t care, but I just get paid to read. My agent advised me to take this gig…idiot!”

    I am sure he is an Apple fan in real life anyway so who gives a crap about this guy.

    • Michael Bay

      Ummm, I was paid to talk about TV’s not smartphones.

      • Jacques Hragar

        Ummmmm, fuck off. Its obviously not actually him.
