Samsung brought in director Michael Bay to talk about film-making and tie it into their CES press conference today, but a teleprompter malfunction left Bay frazzled and he quickly left the stage. We should probably make jokes here, because that is what we do, but I have too many issues with speaking in front of large crowds myself, so I sympathize. Instead, I'll turn to the internet for help.
"I mean, come on. Bay can't talk to an audience without a teleprompter?" said Reddit user 'penisfingers', who has routed all verbal communications entirely over the internet for the last sixteen years.
"What kind of a person has to walk off a stage because he's nervous speaking in front of people?" wondered blogger Milton B., who once wrote a long-winded blog post blaming the patriarchy for girls not liking him because he's too short. "What a nerd."
"What a loser," said Timay, a longtime comic book reader who breaks out in visible flop sweat whenever he's forced to speak to a woman who isn't his mom.
"Don't have time for questions, I have to come up with a joke for Twitter about Bay needing a script for his own thoughts," said snarky reporter Chude Mirror, who lives on the tears of the downtrodden.
Or, at least, that's what I imagine we'll see if we cared to look.
Anyway, he begins "Hollywood is a place that creates a viewing escape," but it quickly gets sidetracked there, even after they attempt to "wing it." Bay soon just apologizes and walks off the stage, leaving Samsung president Tim Baxter there to deal with it himself.
