In his own words, Michael Bay “dreams for a living”. It’s too bad he couldn’t dream up a few choice things to say when the teleprompter broke during his presentation at Samsung’s CES press conference today.
The Hollywood director transformed from confident celebrity filmmaker to a bumbling mess when the screen in front of him refused to tell him what to say next. He stammered “I’m just going to wing this” a few times before running off stage repeating, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry”.
Never has the director of films like The Rock and Armageddon created such a flawed and sympathetic character. Not since The Island has Bay bombed so hard.
