Remember the commercials with the kid who always said “Dude you’re getting a Dell”?
Ben Curtis was that lovable stoner from all the Dell commercials in the late 90′s / early 2000′s. It was no small task: Curtis had to be lovable enough to both appeal to kids and get your parents to buy you a “school computer” (that was really only going to be used for Napster and porn).
Unfortunately, the Dell Dude met his end in the worst way possible: he got fired for smoking pot. What bullshit right? I mean they obviously hired him because he was a pothead. They only fired him because he got caught.
What’s the Dell Dude up to now? He’s a bartender in NYC, Dude get me a drink.
