"Transformers" director Michael Bay had to bail midway through Samsung's packed-house presentation at the first major convention of the year - CES.

Samsung EVP Joe Stinziano brought Bay onstage to discuss 4K TV. Bay began talking about how his job as a director is to create fully immersive environments.

Said environment didn't bend to his will this time though as after a few moments of pauses, Bay said the teleprompter was out of sync.

Bay initially tried to keep going on the fly but then apologised and abruptly walked off the stage. Stinziano covered the departure saying: "Welcome to Vegas, it’s live shows, folks."
