Dude! You’re getting a drink!
Remember this guy? He was that really annoying slacker/stoner spokesperson for Dell.
Apparently he did a bunch of these commercials, then he got busted for weed in 2003 and then took up off-Broadway acting. And now? Well according to AdFreak via New York Mag…
Ben’s behind the bar at Greenwich Village’s Tortilla Flats, a place known for its raucous bingo night and 2 a.m. happy hour, if my foggy memory serves. The good news: He’s in a better place. “There were times when I made boatloads of money as an actor, but here I can be myself,” he says.
There’s a short interview posted on New York Mag’s Grub Street site. Apparently he gets recognized every day.
Well, if you happen to be in the area and want to run up to the bar and do your best “Dude, you’re getting a Dell!” impression, here’s the address:
767 Washington St., New York, NY 10014
at 12th St.
