Michael Bay

I Cracked Under Techie Pressure

When Teleprompter Failed

"Transformers" director Michael Bay says his epic meltdown in Vegas yesterday might not make him popular with technology nerds ... but also says it hasn't exactly hurt him with the ladies.

Bay was on "TMZ Live" explaining why he freaked out and walked off stage during a big presentation at the CES convention.

It's not like he's never been on stage ... he says he's been front and center hundreds of times, but explains why this one was different.

Here's the deal ... Samsung should kiss Michael's ass, because now everyone's talking about its newfangled TV.

It was still totally bizarre, no matter what he says. The guy tossing the questions out was just plain creepy. He should tread very carefully with all those lovely women wanting some of his time. It's the 18-year payday. ka ching!!

At least we don't have to worry about Bay going ballistic and trying to start a thermal nuclear war

Bad prompter.
Atleast he admitted he jumped his line and caused the initial problem. The guy in charge of the prompter should have been able to fix it in mere seconds though. Its still a samsung prompter fail

yeah, the new Samsung Galaxy, it's so fantastic that Samsung needs teleprompters to make people tell how fantastic it is.

Speech is silver, silence is golden, especially when you hire Michael Bay as a presenter!

So, if you allowed people to delete their TMZ accounts, they would probably think you're way cool and awesome and you would be super popular with other media outlets, politicians and celebrities. Just saying.

That was an epic fail and I can't beleive he has no improvisational skills unless he was either totally unprepared or an *******.

Still, none of us are perfect at everything he he has other skills which surpass the average person.

Laugh it off.
