Michael Bay at CES - Epic Marketing Fail?

As most of the internet has now seen, Michael Bay had some issues presenting the new line of Samsung Curve TV's at CES. Apparently he had some issues with the teleprompter, got rattled, and had to leave the stage.

In this day in age when there is so much information, media and ads, I wondered to myself whether or not this was truly a fail for the Marketing people at Samsung. The amount of coverage this video is getting, will undoubtedly reach more people than it would have otherwise. Is all publicity good publicity?


Anyone who gets nervous public speaking has got to feel for this guy though, but little does he know he may have just got Samsung way more exposure than if he had of gone up there and done a flawless speech.

What do you guys think? Is this is a fail, or ultimately a win for Samsung?
