Dell Dude Busted!

Published on .

The Smoking Gun reports today that Ben Curtis -- TV's Dell dude -- got busted for possession of a "small bag of marijuana" this weekend on Manhattan's Lower East Side. Sounds pretty in-character to us, although it probably isn't striking Dell as particularly on-brand. The computer company and its agency, DDB/Chicago, had already put Curtis' "Steven" character on hiatus last fall, leaving it open whether or not he would return. We're guessing he won't, unless it's in an Apple ad.
