No, not Transformers 3, but...
someone on twitter called it correctly: this is the first Bay film to elicit any empathy or compassion in the viewer.
Even though he is a bellend I did feel for him when he walked off like Charlie Brown.
it's weird because the questions are just generic stuff about being a director. Stuff he must of answered thousands of times but is just 'I'm sorry, the teleprompter isn't telling me what my opinions are about these things, I must leave'. Stage fright, eh?
You're completely right that these are basic questions he must have answered a thousand times before. The other guy just says to him to wing it, to help him along, but he just tries to keep going with the teleprompter and then throws a tantrum and storms off.
Michael Bay - The person who can't direct an action movie and actually can't even give his basic opinion on something, dumbass
I've only heard people talking about it. is it really that bad?
he didn't make racist comments or do a rape joke for instance
More like anxiety got the better of him. It would be pretty much my worst nightmare being on stage in front of loads of people with no idea what to say, I'd probably run away too.
granted he should have probably prepared better but I did kind of feel sorry for him.
No fucking way.
What do you think of this massive telly, Micheal?
*jumps through plate glass window*
If I was doing some obviously scripted advertising slot for Samsung and the autocue failed and was then asked to wing it, knowing it was being filmed by many many people and had a bout of nerves, I'd cut my losses and leg it rather than risk trying to wing some godawful ott script. If he'd stuck around, he'd probably have fluffed lines, upped the cringe levels and this video would be far more effective as a "haha michael bay is a dick" video. Better to just cut his losses.
on the other hand, he accepted a scripted advertising slot with Samsung, so.
