Tribute to Billy Mays

We look at grave stones and marvel not at their construction, but at the life of the person they commemorate. I am by no means a great artist, but I have poured every last bit of my limited flash skill into this tribute.

Billy Mays was a guy who was impossible to dislike. Every time I saw one of his infomercials on television, I was happier afterwards, even if I didn't realize it.

Now, Billy Mays is giving pitches to angels, and I would be willing to bet that more than a few of them are willing to pay that $19.99 for whatever he is selling to them.



I miss you Billy.

He'll be missed.

No, this isn't one of those things where I suddenly love him because he's dead. I've always looked up to him because of his confidence and his persuasive abilities.

He was one of the celebrities that I wanted to meet some day and ask how his trip to fame started, even if it wasn't necessarily 'Big-Time'.

Damn, dude.


I couldn't believe it when I read the story...

The King of Pop, the King of Pitch, too?
When will it end?

Such a depressing week...

RIP Billy Mays, your birth of the awesome power of aggressive advertising and cheerful determination will never, ever die. May your light live on.

good bye
