Director Michael Bay stormed off of the stage at the Consumer Electronics Show on Monday following a teleprompter malfunction.
“Wow! I just embarrassed myself at CES,” the “Transformers” director wrote in a blog post following the incident.

Video taken at the convention shows Bay first complain that “the type is all off” before saying he would try to “wing it.” He eventually gives up, abandoning the stage in frustration.
“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,” Bay said in his blog post.
“Then the prompter went up and down – then I walked off,” he added. “I guess live shows aren’t my thing.”
