Tribute to Billy Mays

Author Comments

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.


Hopefully I'm not too harsh

Well, it looks like you've beaten everyone else to it (maybe not, but the fact you have a 3.8 score says something). I see you've also made a Michael Jackson tribute and a bunch of hentai games.

It's pretty obvious everyone is voting 5 and reviewing 10 because they thought the 500 youtube poops of Billy Mays were funny, or they thought Mays was a good guy (he probably was, I have no idea). I don't know why it looks like the majority of people liked this crappy text slideshow (if you can even call it that), but this is newgrounds, so you never know.

All I ask of you is to spend more than 10 minutes on your work, and do something original that isn't just trying to give the majority what they want (hentai games and 30 second tribute flashes). I mean, you even stuck in a lame joke in the author's comments. At least you didn't say he was yelling at the angels.

I know I'm not the only one that thinks this; hopefully you'll consider making something interesting in the future.

Nothing gets me sadder than slow fade in text.

He was a great guy? Really?
I love how people all of sudden love every guy who dies.

George Carlin had like 100 fans on his facebook group, but after he died "OH WAIT, I LIKE HIM TOO! DIRTY WORDS! I GET IT!". People empathize with the dead way too easily, I don't get why people should care about him or the few others that died lately.

It's so cliche', the slow fading text with the emotional music in the background, and a picture of a happy guy. AWW.

UGH, on all this.

There's some debate, but overall people find this review helpful

great way to disguise spam i guess

take a picture and some sad music you find and put them together. Oh, don't forget the words to strike an emotional string on the sympithizers of his death. hmm. well that's pretty much it, sad peope will give 5s, smart people will realize you put little effort into it and give it a 0. However, you are relying on the sadder audience. This isn't a flash submission at all. suggestions... Make a flash, you know animate Billy Ma.... well, that could only turn out bad but, maybe you should avoid the subject. well try it. But good way to hide spam, i'm just kidding this makes me sadderthan his death.

So he died...

and? he was a great Guy? really? tell me what he did that was so great outside of pitching? dude sold oxyclean. he probably died from inhaling all the different chemicals that he pitched. not saying i'm glad he's dead, but he will be replaced in a few days if not already.
