Michael Bay has made some very visual movies, but judging from the clip below during the Computer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, he doesn’t have a way with words.

The Transformers director had a mini meltdown today at the Samsung CES Press Conference and left the stage in the middle of his presentation about the company’s new curved HD TVs. When the teleprompter apparently went down, Bay lost his train of thought, so he walked off.

Bay responded to his actions later on his blog saying, “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”
