Michael Bay walked off stage during a speech for Samsung TV at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) convention in Las Vegas on Monday.


The Transformers director abruptly stopped talking after the teleprompter seemingly malfunctioned, and then said he would just “wing it.”

But moments later, Bay threw his hands up, said, “I’m sorry,” and left the stage.

Afterwards, Bay addressed the incident on his website, writing, “Wow! I just embarrassed myself at CES… I got so excited to talk, that I skipped over the Exec VP’s intro line and then the teleprompter got lost.”

“I guess live shows aren’t my thing,” added the director.
