Dell Streak Marketing Stunt Gone Wrong Lands Two Dell Employees In Jail

Ed Steele February 16, 2011 Comments Off on Dell Streak Marketing Stunt Gone Wrong Lands Two Dell Employees In Jail


Dear Dell Marketing Guys,
When marketing the new connectivity features of the Dell Streak that allow it to sync up with Harley-Davidson Motorcycles, might we suggest that dressing up in all black with black masks, brandishing metallic objects, and ordering other employees to “go to the lobby” at the Dell Round Rock campus isn’t necessarily the best way to go about it – especially the part about refusing to comply with police officers after they are called to the scene.

A sales manager set up the stunt as an internal promotional event to celebrate the release of the new Dell Streak tablet, but Round Rock police ended up arresting two people for causing the disturbance, according to RRPD spokesman Eric Poteet.

Sincerely,
GadgetMadness
