Michael Bay’s “We’ll Do It Live” Moment

I really hate CES. Half of the show seems like the kind of bargain-basement crap you’d find at Memory Express, or Micro Center for my American friends. About a quarter of the show is full of “revolutionary” upgrades to things which have resisted revolutionizing for decades (a computer controlled oven, anyone?). The remaining quarter is loaded with the kind of crazy technology you’ll never be able to buy.

But CES is somewhat redeemed by moments like this one. Watch as Michael Bay has a “fuck it, we’ll do it live” kind of moment (language warning, obviously), although much tamer than Bill O’Reilly’s. Couldn’t have said it any better than Gerry Duggan:

I didn’t realize scripts meant so much to Michael Bay.

I’m a little surprised that Bay doesn’t leave venues via explosion.
