FINALLY, director Michael Bay of “Pearl Harbor” and “Transformers” fame produced something entertaining.

On Tuesday, during the first day of the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the bombastic director was supposed to come out on stage and help introduce and endorse Samsung’s massive curved-screen ultra high definition TV at Samsung’s press conference.

Instead, Bay got a massive case of flop sweat when the teleprompter didn’t work and he walked off the stage in embarrassment. It was a failure of “Armageddon” proportions. Check it out on the video above.

Bay, to his credit, went on his blog shortly after and admitted his disastrous appearance. Still, it was a lot more entertaining than “Bad Boys 2.”
