Michael Bay Explains Why He Stormed Off Stage At CES

Ask someone here in Vegas about what they’ve liked at CES this year and you’ll probably only hear two words: Michael Bay. He stormed off stage during a Samsung press conference, and now he’s briefly explained why.

For those who don’t remember, here’s the hissy fit as it went down.

Michael Bay has taken to his blog to explain himself:

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.


Tough break, Bay. [Michael Bay via The Verge]
