I Remember Billy Mays

Dedicated to the memory of the greatest salesman who ever lived. 81 People

    What the Hell Is Going On?!?

    Seriously, celebrities are dropping like flies this week.  This is so strange.  Billy was only fifty, like Michael.  I wonder who comes next. I'm  going to miss watching that great man dip things in Oxy!

    Dude was loud as hell. I had the tv on mute and still heard him. Maybe it was the caine. RIP Billy.

    Rest In Peace

    Although I never knew Billy Mays personally I am deeply saddened my his sudden departure, Billy was born in McKees Rocks Pennsylvania, which isn't too far away from where I live in beaver county. I never knew that until a few years ago and to me he was the only signifigant figure...

    I used to watch television advertisements with

    Billy Mays, and I always liked him. Whenever one of his advertisements came on the television, I would always stop whatever I was doing to watch him. He had a great sense of humour, and I always laughed at the sound of his loud voice. The products he endorsed were unusual...

    "Billy Mays Here!!!!!"

    I remember him may he rest in peace, I always thought he was so funny because he always shouted at the top of his voice, I remember watching a show and half falling asleep when all of a sudden this loud voice jostles me wide awake, "BILLY MAYS HERE."

    Billy - rest in peace - was such a loud spokesman. He caught your attention in those commercials.

    On a somewhat unrelated note,

    there was a rumor going around that he was a serious coke addict. Is that true?

    He Was Awesome.......

    I can't believe he's gone..... This is what Yahoo News had on him just a few minutes ago..... TAMPA, Fla. - Billy Mays, the burly, bearded television pitchman whose boisterous hawking of products such as Orange Glo and OxiClean made him a pop-culture icon, has died. He was 50...

    So Sad....

    I have just found out this news, not too long ago. I am sad and shocked for it. Just a week ago, I had made a group here, in honor of his tv show, that I liked so much. Him and Sully was a great team! I will miss him MUCH! :-( He was the greatest salesman ever! I never paid...

    Idf You Had Tv Who Wouldn't -- But Why?

    I hate to hear of anyone's death, but.... I just don't know what to say. I am sure the world of cheap TV ads will go on.

    Billy Mays Dead At 50

    The toxicology tests showed levels of the painkillers hydrocodone, oxycodone and tramadol, as well as anti-anxiety drugs alprazolam and diazepam...and the levels of cocaine found in his system indicated he had used cocaine in the days prior.
