Michael Bay Made the Most Awkward Press Conference Appearance

Transformers director Michael Bay was supposed to be talking up the wonders of Samsung‘s TVs at this Consumer Electronics Show event today. But the technology, of all things, tripped him up, and as soon as the teleprompter malfunctioned he straight up pulled a Cartman.

We almost feel bad for him because this incident obviously wasn’t his fault and it seems like he’s about to suffer a panic attack as he leaves the stage. But you’d think that a super-successful director who relies so heavily on digital toys would:

A) Not be so flummoxed by a basic tech malfunction

B) Know better how to “wing it” in front of a crowd

After watching this clip, we’d hate to see how he responds to criticism of his movies.
