The big news from the Consumer Electronics Show comes at the expensive of super-action director Michael Bay. He was promoting a new 105″ curved TV from Samsung when the teleprompter failed.
Afterwards Bay blogged about what happened:
Wow! I just embarrassed myself at CES – I was about to speak for Samsung for this awesome Curved 105-inch UHD TV. 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.
