There have been rumors about Dell possibly going private or that Microsoft is in talks to invest $3 billion into Dell. So it would seem that they are in trouble. What to do? Bring the Dell Dude back? Well, the Dell Dude thinks that would save the company.
Ben Curtis is the Dell Dude. You might remember his annoying commercials. He submitted an e-mail to Bloomberg in which he explains how Dell could fix its current problems:
“I think they’re making a huge mistake and simply need to bring back the Dell Dude! That’s it. That’s all they need to do. If they brought me back, their sales, stock and media presence would skyrocket. That is by FAR the smartest move they could make.”
I’d say someone has hit hard times and wants his job back.
