    UPDATED: Michael Bay Had Enough Of Your Shit, Samsung Teleprompter 

    At the Consumer Electronics Show today in Las Vegas, Nevada, billionare film-maker and beloved cultural icon and film auteur Michael Bay, who has gifted the world with The Rock, Bad Boys II, and soon Transformers: Age of Extinction was speaking at Samsung's press event when a technical error caused him to calmly collect his thoughts and leave.

    The LA Times has the full transcript:

    Bay, who was on stage for all of 70 uncomfortable seconds, began by saying: "Uh my job as a director is I get to dream for a living."

    Then he said: "Um I create visual worlds that are so beyond everyone's normal life experiences and Hollywood is a place that creates uh a viewer escape and um what I try to do as a director is I try to ..."

    At this point, he trailed off before finally uttering a disgusted, "Ugh."

    "The type is all off, sorry, but I'll just wing this," he said, appearing agitated.  Joe Stinziano, Samsung executive vice president, tried to smooth over the situation, gently prodding Bay to "tell us what you think."

    Bay began again: "I try to take people on an emotional ride and um..."

    Stinziano again tried to salvage the appearance, saying: "The curve? How do you think it's gonna impact how viewers experience your movies?"

    But Bay had had enough. He turned and walked off. "Excuse me, I'm sorry. I'm sorry," the director said.

    Within minutes, Michael Bay reached the top 10 trends in the United States on Twitter. 

    Bay then posted on his official site:

    Wow! I just embarrassed myself at CES – I was about to speak for Samsung for this awesome Curved 105-inch UHD TV. I rarely lend my name to any products, but this one is just stellar. I got so excited to talk, that I skipped over the Exec VP’s intro line and then the teleprompter got lost. Then the prompter went up and down – then I walked off. I guess live shows aren’t my thing.

    But I’m doing a special curved screen experience with Samsung and Transformers 4 footage that will be traveling around the world.

    New Old Spice Commercial "Momsong" Is Chilling & Fantastic

    Old Spice has done some really interesting ad campaigns but their newest really freaked me out. A bunch of moms singing about their boys growing up with some odd "special effects" that might have been inspired by any of your typical exorcism flicks. Check it out below, you've been warned.

    New Old Spice Re-Fresh Body Spray may cause boys to become men, girls to become girlfriends, and moms to become sad.

    "The Simpsons" Lego House Is Awesome

    I've loved Legos & Playmobil ever since I discovered they were a thing. Since I am a 34 year old adult I don't still own even one lego brick or spiky bowl haircut Playmobil character. However, if it were still socially acceptable for me to play with such toys, I would. Especially now that I have found out Lego is introducing a Simpsons House.

    The Simpsons House is set to be released to the masses of every Springfield in America along with every other city and town in April. Containing 2,523 pieces the set will retail for $150 - $200. Photo below.

    With the first Simpsons playset, The Simpsons House, being released in April, a picture of the set has leaked online.  While many collectors wondered about the size and price point, the box reveals it’s 2,523 pieces and it comes with six minifigures (Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie, and Ned Flanders), which means it should range between $150-$200 retail.  Hit the jump to check out the set.

    A simple case of recasting was what stopped Gravity from being a masterpiece. For shame, Alfonso Cuarón.

    Rihanna Killing It In A Bikini 

    I don't know what beach Rihanna is strutting her stuff on but it really doesn't matter. Any beach she is on hopes that high tide neverarrives so they don't wash her scent from the sand.

    There is something about her. Her music, her look, she's a pop culture presence. Her popularity is only gaining as she becomes even bigger than her music.

    Papparazzi take notice, her tats are multiplying as well.

    I am probably like the millions of others out there who are very addicted to coffee. One cup just isn't enough. I'm not a coffee snob, like many Bostonians I'm fine with my go to coffee house better known as Dunkin Donuts. I don't need to go to Starbucks and have a banana blonde latte to be satisfied. Not that there is anything wrong with Starbucks, it's just not an every day thing for me.

    #mydunkin is all about Dunkin' Donuts fans and their stories. Watch our fan Nikki discover her last Dunkin' Pumpkin K-Cup pack in her coffee stash and talented fan Meg enjoying a #mydunkin moment while singing acapella.

    The X-Men: Days of Future Past Image Bryan Singer Doesn't Want You to See!

    Courtesy of Geek League of America is the latest example of Patrick Stewart being an Internet sensation all his own. Seriously he needs his own reality TV show, with Ian McKellen as his sidekick. Will someone do us all a favor and ask the two British gentlemen about this incident at the X-Men: Days of Future Past press junkets please?
