Michael Bay: "I'm here for LG, but rocking a Samsung"

I'm not convinced Samsung didn't pay him under the table for this major, and very public, snafu. If I were LG, I'd whip up a line of phones that are "Cheap enough for even Michael Bay" or "Dumb enough for even Michael Bay"!

We're not sure what LG expected when it invited Micheal Bay to speak about the company's promotional support of Transfomers 2: Revenge of the Fallen at CTIA, but let's be honest -- they probably should have known dude was going to blow something up. Unfortunately for the gathered LG employees, this time Mike-Mike delivered a figurative explosion, telling the crowd "I don't know anything about mobile phones. In fact, look at my phone -- it's a thirty-nine dollar Samsung." Ouch -- that's roughly the equivalent of throwing a Ford in with the rest of the Autobots. Making matters worse, LG president of mobile products Juno Cho tried to salvage the moment by offering Bay his personal phone, but was rebuffed because "all my contacts are in the other one." Yeah, that's probably not the best way to play it -- although we're guessing Samsung's already angling for TouchWiz to feature prominently in Transformers 3.
