Swashbuckling director and manly scarecrow Michael Bay recently suffered a bit of a meltdown during Samsung’s CES conference in Las Vegas. America’s answer to Peter Stringfellow was due to explain to the gawping public just how amazingly amazing Samsung’s new TV is, apparently it has some sort of curve and is really big and their hope is that viewers will actually think they are in the movie they are watching, when in reality there just sitting on their couch in their underpants, gently sobbing into their bowl of stale cereal.
As you can see from the video above Bay loses track of what he’s saying very quickly, (like I did when he mentioned that he creates ‘visual worlds so beyond everyone’s normal life experiences‘), he blames the telepromoter for his hiccup, but the visual explosions and scantily clad women which continually inhabit the great man’s head prevented his brain from producing speaky words and so he strides off stage.
Later after he had slain twelve personal assitants Bay combed his mane back into place and penned this brief explanation:
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.
In the words of a great, dead man: ‘You done fucked up.‘ How’s that for a normal life experience Michael?
