Dell and Gateway Use Same Model in Back to School Campaigns

In a hilarious marketing goof, both Dell and Gateway used the same model on their websites in back-to-school promotions. Not only that, it looks like the images are from the same photoshoot. Oh, the perils of buying stock photography. Competing companies. Same promotion. Same model. Oops. Of course, both marketers have figured this out and the images arew no longer seen to be on their sites. But, here they are for your amusement.
