Michael Bay Explains ‘Embarrassing’ Teleprompter Fail

The 'Transformers' director abandoned a live-stage appearance at CES in Las Vegas following a teleprompter malfunction.

The words “Michael Bay” and “script issues” are often found in the same sentence, but yesterday, that sentence made some room for another word: “Awkward.”

The “Transformers” filmmaker was in Las Vegas this week as part of Samsung’s CES 2014 Press Conference, scheduled to appear in support of the company’s new UHD curved television displays. But Bay’s onstage appearance went very wrong, very fast, when his teleprompter stopped working mid-speech.
