I just wanted my friends to tell me "Dude, you're getting a Dell!"
Then the Dell Dude was busted for possession of the hippie lettuce. And believe it or not, I've actually wondered what happened to the guy.
Here's my answer:
Next time you’re at Tortilla Flats and you find yourself wondering aloud to your dinner companion, “What ever happened to the guy who did the ‘Dude, you’re getting a Dell’ commercials?” don’t be surprised when Ben Curtis, the man himself, approaches your table and explains the tequila list. While guest-starring on Law & Order and acting in films like the upcoming Proud Iva, Curtis has been a waiter and bartender at the Tex-Mex spot for the past year and a half, and though he dressed up as the Dell Dude for the Halloween party, he’s not about to repeat the slogan for you. He might, however, give you a free shot. “All you have to do,” he says, “is come and have a good time.”
"Dude...you're getting a tequila shot!"
