I just found out Billy Mayes is dead at the age of 50. He was the guy who advertised products like Oxi Clean and such. (He yelled pretty much every time you saw him on TV) I was just wondering about people's opinions of him and his death?

I like it, John. I suspect foul play as any evidence could have been removed WITHOUT LEAVING A TRACE! Also, the criminal would have had plenty of oxi or shamwows because he called right then, and got additional items for free.

But I enjoyed Billy Mays! He'd be on the television like every 5 minutes. He was the most entertaining marketer I've ever watched.

I didn't see that. But, really. I sat there for like 5 minutes trying to find a lower case letter.

I'm gonna try an experiment.

The way he died is actually really sad. The plane he was on was having some difficulties. When they were landing, all of luggage fell out of the shelf things and some fell on his head. He went to bed that night and never woke up.....depressing

They haven't officially connected the 'rough landing' with his death yet, though

I wonder if OxiClean sales have gone up. It worked for Michael Jackson.
It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

Sad. I liked the guy. His commercials were the only ones that actually made me want to by the product being advertised, even though I had no need for it whatsoever.

Some of my friends and I used to make fun of him and his boisterous voice on his marketing commercials....now I feel kind of guilty.

I apologize, Billy Mays.

May he rest in peace.

Why was he shouting? Why didn't they give him a microphone like they did to all those charming housewives?

He was on a talk show one time and said that he started off selling products on the street so he would have to shout for people to hear him. Whenever he started doing TV commercials, I guess it just stuck.

No, when he died they bought his songs.

I don't see how someone would misunderstand you. Perhaps she was sarcastic...
