    I thought I was the only one who found the Dell guy annoying. Still don't understand why he has legions of fans...

    His real name is Ben. Matt Lauer interviewed him on the Today show Friday morning. He's an aspiring actor and says he's not concerned that the Dell commercials will type-cast him. He says he'll keep doing them as long as they want him...which will probably be a while since Dell attributes much of their sales increases to him while other computer companies have faltered. He also talked about reading for a lot of different kinds of roles, but doesn't sound like he has landed anything yet.

    Love Steve...and love Stewart!

    I'm surprised Stewart hasn't resurfaced. "You're riding the wave, my man."

    two things, one on steve and one on stuart.

    First Steve: Am I the only one who thinks he looks constipated ? Especially when his eyebrows get all kinked up like Uncle Leo at the doctor's office ? I swear...that is the look of constipation.

    ...and now Stuart: Isnt it hard to believe Stuart is the same red-headed cousin nerdling from Home Alone 1 and 2 ?

    Current targets for Death

    Chris Tucker: "I hope you find my hatchet pretty hot and tempting"

    Orlando Jones: "I'm definately gonna shove Seven plastique, up yours"

    Carrot Top: "The French find you funny. That's death right there. I'll be sure to slice down your center and see how fast you can dial 911"

    Martin Lawrence: "When you "accidently" drop out of that plane door, you'll be more concerned with wassdown!"

    PLEASE NOTE: THE PRECEDING WAS FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY, AND BY NO MEANS IS A DEATH THREAT TOWARDS THESE PEOPLE> THEY MAY BE UNTALENTED HACKS, BUT THEY DON"T DESERVE TO DIE FOR IT.

    Well, cnn had a report on their website the other day. I think he is no worse (or better) than any other established personality in an ad campaign (Mr. Wipple, the donut guy, Mrs. Olson, etc). However, since he has had a marked effect on Dell sales (something on the order of 30%), don't expect him to disappear anytime soon. As with most ad campaigns his 15 minutes will expire eventually.

    Cheers,

    Kenneth

    He made an annoying commercial. Not just one, but an entire series of them. Being annoying is not being funny. [​IMG]

    That guy lives in my town. He graduated from the same school here as Ted Turner did (McCallie High School.)
