Michael Bay Walks Off Stage After Teleprompter Breaks (Video)

Michael Bay was the featured speaker for Samsung TV’s presentation at the CES convention on Monday (January 6), but in the beginning of his speech, he stormed off stage after the teleprompter appeared to malfunction.

The 48-year-old Transformers director was there to talk about how the brand’s new televisions would change the way audiences could watch his films at home.

While he started off okay without his script on screen, Michael couldn’t remember what he was supposed to say and eventually walked off stage, saying “Excuse me, I’m sorry.”

    He was drugged out, he came out shaky and nervous, nothing to do with teleprompter malfunction, if that was the case he would a pro and keep going, but in this case the drug took over while he was on stage…can’t wait for the lie he comes up with

  • Amanda

    LMAO. This sexiest jerk. Boycott his movies.

  • yo

    you spin the story. but…

    we sorry too. he can’t even say something without a script. anxious #hollywoodnerd.

  • kelli

    omg loser. he is obviously high on something, you can see it the minute he walks on

  • mel

    That was incredibly rude and unprofessional. He should have tried to ‘wing it’ as he claimed he would. He didn’t even make an effort.

  • pinkydoo

    The guy is typical Hollywood. Nothing is done without a script in hand anymore. Nobody knows how to improvise. Gone are the days of Laurence Olivier.

  • Ha

    Yeah that was very rude for the guy that was with him on stage. Poor guy didn’t know how to continue the whole thing! Very unprofessional too. He obviously couldn’t “wing it”, I guess he’s not good at improvising!

  • Verity

    He is so overrated.

  • Camden

    Wow…that was awkward to watch. For someone who I’m sure has had to do some kind of public speaking before I would have thought he could have ‘winged’ it, after all he IS only talking about what he does for work, his passion. It’s not like he had to give a lecture on photosyntheis or anything? If someone asked me to talk 5 minutes about what I’m passionate about, and what I do for a living (some of us should be so lucky) than you probably couldn’t shut me up, I wouldn’t need no damn teleprompter.

    Like a previous commentator has marked, Michael Bay is totally overrated.

  • Flagrantly

    He has the mind of a 15 year old; that’s why his films do so well. You’d think someone with his professional history would be able to wing it and speak without a teleprompter. After all, the question was about his industry. Just goes to show makeup can’t cover up huge flaws forever.
