The world mourns Michael Jackson, but in our household, we mourn the passing of Billy Mays. We were the unofficial Billy Mays fan club, rushing to the TV whenever we heard his stentorian voice booming over the speakers.
No more of that, sadly. Who will sell us the next must-have thingamabob, persuade us to try the amazing Fix-it (not bad for minor scratches on a car's finish- I know, I tried it.), or the Oxiclean bucket which still sits unused except for a spoonful or two since I last purchased it 5 years ago? Can Anthony Sullivan or the Shamwow guy fill his shoes? I fear not.
RIP, Billy Mays.
(Billy Mays and Anthony Sullivan appear on the Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien to pitch their new series, 'The Pitchmen' in this clip.)
