2002-10-14 07:12:32 PM  
or rather everybody else typing it on the intraweb
2002-10-14 07:36:10 PM  
Well. Hell. Dell.

Shuck Steven and I'll go back to building my own machines.
2002-10-14 07:48:15 PM  
don't celebrate yet, i'm sure he'll be replaced with someone even more smarmy and nauseating.

Don't be so cynical. There is NO ONE more smarmy and nauseating.
2002-10-14 09:05:04 PM  
There is a God.

Unfortunately, Steven will still be featured on Fark in many threads and photoshops to come.

2002-10-14 09:21:46 PM  
What's an 'intraweb'? Anyways, thank god. Now if Lance Bass would hurry up and die things will be looking up. But, more likely, they'll replace him with Carrot Top. *ugh*
2002-10-14 09:50:31 PM  
Ah well, back to gay porn for Steven.
2002-10-14 10:47:28 PM

"Don't be so cynical. There is NO ONE more smarmy and nauseating."

don't forget, al gore is still lurking out there somewhere (most likely close by to an all-you-can-eat buffet...)
2002-10-14 10:52:57 PM  
Good. One down, a shiatload more to go. First, Carrot Top. Second, that Billy Mays moron who does the Oxiclean and Orange Glow commercials. Third, that smarmy little biatch in the "Orlando Magic Card" ads. "Five hundred dollars?! That's a lot! Like a zillion!". Yeah, if you believe Reaganomics ya daft shiate.
2002-10-14 10:53:47 PM  
they switched to those interns ads. But I saw one last night that had steven in it....aahhhh made a bad commercial even worse.
2002-10-14 10:54:07 PM  
Dude! Yer gettin a Pink Slip.
2002-10-14 10:54:36 PM  
hell, at least it's not carrot top.

Steven's real name is Samuel Clemens
2002-10-14 10:58:14 PM  
Two words: Hoo ray!
2002-10-14 10:58:31 PM  
"Dude! We're gettin' another Dell!"

Please shoot me DC Sniper NOW!
2002-10-14 10:59:47 PM  
Dude, am I the only onw who liked that guy?
2002-10-14 11:00:42 PM  
Dude, we'll see you in hell!
2002-10-14 11:01:03 PM  
Just have a chat with "DellDudeSteven". Not a whole lot of substance there.

wallettongue: Are you aware that you are going to be fired?
DellDudeSteven: that's funny. maybe, but i just dunno!
wallettongue: Are you an anti-semite?
DellDudeSteven: hmm... am i an anti semite? golly, i dunno.
wallettongue: Did you kill Christ?
DellDudeSteven: did i kill christ?
wallettongue: Yes, Christ. Did you kill him?
DellDudeSteven: i'm not sure.

The Crush movie AIM bot was a lot more fun.
2002-10-14 11:01:43 PM  
The Blue Raja:

Steve is Mark Twain? There goes my universe. Actually, his real name is Ben Curtis. CNN did a story on him Jan 31st this year.
2002-10-14 11:01:53 PM  

Dell will regret this. I just know it
2002-10-14 11:03:02 PM  
Dude, i bet they are getting another dude...
2002-10-14 11:03:22 PM  
SNL had an unflattering send up of the Dell Dude last week. That's got to be the death knell for an ad icon. Dude, you're gettin' a Knell !
2002-10-14 11:03:31 PM  
Dude, we got a transvestite!
2002-10-14 11:03:34 PM  
There is NO ONE more smarmy and nauseating.

So I chatted up Steven to get at the truth of the matter...

Dumb Angry Man
: You're getting fired, aren't you?

: i'm getting fired? i guess...

Dumb Angry Man: Sucks.

: :(

Dumb Angry Man: You pick up a lot of chicks with that Dell line?

: wow. great question. but i'm not sure!

Dumb Angry Man: How are you not sure?

: i'm pretty sure, yeah.

Dumb Angry Man: What?

: what?

Dumb Angry Man: I bet you don't get any chicks.

: oh yeah?

Dumb Angry Man: Yeah.

: yup

that's all very interesting. anyway...

u know, these new wireless networks let u connect the
computers in the house without any wires. my dad likes 2
check his e-mail from the hammock (unless i'm mowing the lawn
:-) ). want me 2 tell u more?

Dumb Angry Man: What the fark are you talking about?

: is it absolutely necessary to use such language?

Dumb Angry Man: You really don't get any chicks.

: ok, what about it?

Dumb Angry Man: What about it? You're the kind of guy who'd crawl through a perfectly good
brothel to get at a fat boy's ass, that's what about it.

: that right?

Dumb Angry Man: I'm out of here.

: u r out of here? and your point is...

I'm not sure what to think.
2002-10-14 11:04:26 PM  
There goes a perfectly good cliche.
2002-10-14 11:04:27 PM  
He could easily become more annoying... if Apple decides to snatch him up for a "Dude, I switched" commercial.

As much as he annoys the hell out of me, I dunno, I think I'd still fark him. And if there's any truth to the rumor, maybe I could sometime. (I believe EVERYTHING I read on the internet)
2002-10-14 11:04:45 PM  
I heard Steven is going to be in the next Terminator movie...
2002-10-14 11:05:33 PM  
this is a bad move
this guy is like the energizer bunny - why kill it off now?

"who are the ad wizards who came up with this one?"
2002-10-14 11:05:41 PM  
"In two years, Steven, played by 21-year-old New York University acting student Ben Curtis, has become a cult advertising figure." They say the terrorists do what they do to change the way we live. They are successful. RIP the Steven we have known. Viva Ben Curtis! you have done well that for which you were paid, many happy successes to come, mon ami. Non carborundum illegitimae!

Oh dude your gettin' the boot!

2002-10-14 11:08:45 PM  

No, no, it's Samuel Clemens.
2002-10-14 11:09:48 PM  
Inotalkau: no, i liked him too, as another actor, im glad that guy got a good gig that paid well, and made many people (and me) smile... i love his commercials :)

That said, anyone remember that parody commecial that The Screen Savers crew did on TechTV a couple years ago?

I'd hit it. He's cute.
2002-10-14 11:10:39 PM  
thank you, alleged higher power. *walks away from microwave*
2002-10-14 11:14:24 PM  
I do hope they let him keep the Ford Convertible and have continued access to the chick-a.
2002-10-14 11:15:57 PM  
Crappy, I know...

2002-10-14 11:16:29 PM  
Starlight...he'll be just like computer hardware. You could probably hit him now for $5-10k...but if you wait 6 months you'll be able to hit him for $29.95 and a pack of camels. By then his other customers will probably have knocked most of his teeth out though, so you might not want to wait too long.

DUH! Yor' gettin' huh Dell

New Dell guy
2002-10-14 11:17:36 PM  
And yes, I'm intentionally misconstruing your comment because I think the idea of him getting his ass kicked for cash is much more likely, and funnier, than the idea of him as a male prostitute.
2002-10-14 11:17:59 PM  
Hrm, this guy started out annoying me, but the newer comercials were actualy kind of funny. Most of the dell ads I've seen lately are bussness related. Of course, come to think of it, I only turned on the TV recently last friday to see what was up with that sniper dude. CNN probably dosn't run to many family oriented commercials.

Anyway, I think those bussness ads could have worked with 'the dell kid', actualy. It would have been a humorous juxtoposition.
2002-10-14 11:20:05 PM  
My chat with the dell dude on my girlfriends AIM... she was laughing her ass off :)

Sarcasmatic1: hey steven
DellDudeSteven: what's up, Sarcasmatic1? excellent 2 meet u. my name is DellDudeSteven! i was created for Dell by ActiveBuddy, Inc.

Sarcasmatic1: no, i dont want a printer, unless its printing photos of your naked body...
DellDudeSteven: hmm... i dunno. u don't want a printer unless it is printing photos of my naked body? whatever, i guess.
Sarcasmatic1: but... i want to lick every inch of you!
DellDudeSteven: oh?
Sarcasmatic1: you intrigued?
DellDudeSteven: funny. i'm just not sure.
Sarcasmatic1: you know you want it, come on!
