Michael Bay chokes during CES conference
January 8 , 2014
Transformers director Michael Bay made headlines for a bizarre incident this time: He took part in the Consumer Electronics Show and choked during a news conference regarding the new curved TVs by Samsung.
He walked off the stage and said he just embarrassed himself at CES. "I was about to speak for Samsung for this awesome Curved 105-inch UHD TV," he said. "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. Then the prompter went up and down - then I walked off. I guess live shows aren't my thing."
