The pressure must have gotten to this guy, and it's sad to hear people laughing.

Haha, saw that on Imus in the Morning. I love watching stuff like that.

Why?

Because a normal human being typically exhibits higher order emotions such as compassion and empathy...

Personally, I feel bad for the people that laughed. They're likely constant victims of their awkward outbursts.

So, you've never laughed when someone slipped on a banana etc.
Never laughed at the x factor fools?

Having aspergers, I do not have empathy.

Must be an English thing to laugh.

So, he was hired as a speaker, and figured all he needed to do, was to get someone to write a speech, for him to read off a teleprompter......LOL! He should have stepped up to the pressure in the first place, by learning, or at least, better planning his speech.
That, sir, was a big mistake, but more on the part of Samsung, for hiring him.......LOL.

And yes, I'm happy to laugh at Samsung for their daftness, without feeling that I am sub human.....

Actually, that was not a hired speaker, it was Michael Bay, Samsung's guest speaker and the Director of the Transformer Films. Given that a presentation was going on simultaneously that he had no way to follow, I can't fault the guy at all, sorry.

The host/MC tried to salvage by throwing him a slow-pitch softball question. He couldn't even handle that. Bad case of stage fright.

Maybe he needed a lot of action and things blowing up to get him comfortable?

Who, no doubt was paid a lot of money to be there, so don't feel too sorry for the chap.

Guest speaker? What exactly does that mean, that he wasn't paid?
Was he surprised, at the last minute, when invited, I don't think so, he should have been better prepared, in my opinion.
In the past, I've dealt with speakers at conferences, many company directors, and many with stage fright.
None used a teleprompter. Some may have used paper notes/script.
None of them failed. Probably, because they prepared themselves for the event. ;)

I speak to my peers at seminars. I always hand-write what I want to say on yellow legal paper. Once I get started I seldom look at my notes and always seem to run out of time before I've said all I wanted to say. Maybe I should leave out the jokes and anecdotes that pop into my head but the audience seems to like them.

I watched the clip. The host was asking him questions about his own work. He couldn't make something up if the teleprompter failed?

Or pull some form of the Garrison Keillor time-buying trick "Hm, that's an interesting question, I've got some ideas on the subject, but to clarify, could you maybe rephrase it?" "Uhm, OK, what are the ages of your children?"

Exactly lucy. I called it a slow-pitch softball question. He just freaked. Must not do this much.
