TORONTO — Director Michael Bay went online Monday to explain why his appearance at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas was an epic fail.
“I guess live shows aren’t my thing,” he said in a message posted on his website.
Bay was the special guest at the unveiling of Samsung’s new Curved 105-inch UHD TV but walked off the stage after struggling to improvise a conversation with Samsung Electronics America president Tim Baxter.
Bay said the TelePrompTer was malfunctioning.
A video of the awkward moment quickly went viral.
“Wow! I just embarrassed myself at CES,” the Transformers director explained. “The prompter went up and down – then I walked off.”
