Michael Bay’s newest disaster movie.
I wouldn’t want to be one of the producers backstage responsible for what went wrong. That had to be really ugly when he got backstage.
Me too. I was a public speaking whiz kid during the K-12 days; plays, speech completions, state Forensics finalist. After college, years removed from any rehearsed public address situations, I pursued a promotion at work and had to deliver a simple presentation to a boardroom full of corporate executives. Because of my background I wasn’t worried or unusually nervous. The atmosphere was laid back and supportive. Should have been a breeze. About 30 seconds in I became aware that I wasn’t exhaling, just talking and sucking in air. My lungs got so full I knew letting them go would make a ridiculously nervous sounding sigh. I lost my train of thought, fell silent and realized the jig was up: frozen stiff under a million jiggawatts of fluorescent office lights and thirty pairs of pitying eyes. I am now an adult educator, completely comfortable in front of a crowd as long as I’m just talking, teaching, in a natural conversational way. The moment I have to “present” myself and the mode of address shifts an inch toward phoniness, I will freeze exactly like I did in that boardroom.
Not funny. Been there, and it’s horrible 🙁
What, he can’t just speak off the cuff?
He finally apologizes for his cruddy movies. It’s about time!
Director, direct thyself!
Wow! You would think that a guy with an imagination as vivid and far stretching as his would be able to ad lib a little in front of a few fans?! What a sissy!
Well, that kind of… blew up in his face.
I get that this is awkward, but how is it about family photos?
you don’t have to be so literal 🙂
Man, I didnt expect this level of awkward from someone used to bossing around some of the worlds biggest egos. My heart actually went out to him!
When happens when Michael Bay gets diarrhea and has to find a toilet, like, now.
