Surprise! The Dell Dude Now Uses A Mac
This probably won’t be a surprise, but early 2000s’ Dell Dude Ben Curtis is alive and well and using a Mac:
Actor Ben Curtis talks about what it was like representing and being the face of Dell in those insipid “Dude, you’re getting a Dell” commercials back when Microsoft and the PC box assemblers still had much of the world hoodwinked.
He speaks on Bloomberg Television‘s “Market Makers.”
I am using a Mac right now…
It’s sort of been one of the necessities, which I think Dell is competing with… – Ben Curtis, former “Dell Dude”
If you don’t remember him (and many of you won’t), he was a huge pop culture icon in the early 2000s. It was rumored at the time that he is gay but never substantiated.
