As a huge fan of Billy Mays there is no way I can come up with something bad to say about him. If you are expecting jokes about his insane way of pitching of products stick to youtube. I have personally worked with Billy Mays and he is one of the nicest people you could have ever met. I will miss him and so will Tampa.
Billy Mays started his career selling stuff on the Jersey Boardwalk and then on Home Shopping Network. His energy and intense style made him the go to guy when they needed to sell a slow moving product. He became a national sensation promoting OxiClean, Orange Glo, and Kaboom He was the pitchman for all the Mighty products like the Mighty Putty, Mighty Shine, and Mighty Mendit.
In April, he launched a new reality series, "Pitchmen," on the Discovery Channel. A behind the scenes view of the Direct TV Marketing world is one of the best shows on. His passing is going to have a huge impact on the hit series and the industry as a whole. The current news overshadows even the most recent Hooker Beating Vince with his Shamwow and SlapChop.
Billy was on U.S. Airways Flight 1241 when it blew its front tires as it landed Saturday, forcing the airport to shut down the busy north-south runway, according to authorities. Mays and other passengers were interviewed by US Airways staff after the Philadelphia flight's hard landing. Responders reported no injuries. Tampa Fire and Rescue reported no injuries and nobody asked for treatment even though some of the passengers said they had bruises. There is no word if it is related to his passing
