Here's what happened to the Dell Dude

I don't sit around much thinking about what might up with the Dell Dude, but hey, if you do, I've got news: he's working at Tortilla Flats in New York. (It's a Mexican restaurant, natch.) In this exclusive interview with New York magazine, el Dude sums up his peculiar ride from computer pitchman to bartender, with soundbites such as this:

Do people quote [the commercial] to you?
They get really drunk, and they’ll start yelling things at me. I either ignore them, or if it’s way out of hand, I go up and say, “I appreciate your support, but my name is Ben.” That usually doesn’t work so I smile and ignore them.
