    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

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

    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.

    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...

    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...

    "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."

    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!
