I Remember Billy Mays

Dedicated to the memory of the greatest salesman who ever lived. 79 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!

    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.

    "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.

    So Sad....

    On a somewhat unrelated note,

    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...
