Billy Mays

I was saddened today when I learned about the death of Billy Mays. I have always been intrigued by infomercials for one reason or another, though I have never purchased anything from direct response television. My favorite pitchman for any of these commercials was by far Billy Mays. I have most recently enjoyed watching Pitchmen on the Discovery Channel and I was thrilled to get a chance to look at the whole process that went into pitching products. It gave me a lot more respect for Billy Mays and the products he endorses.

I have been on vacation the past week and I was planning on doing a post about that, but decided to wait after hearing the news about Billy Mays. Of all the celebrity deaths that have happened the last week, I am most saddened by the death of Billy Mays. From what I have seen, he really was a good man and I will miss seeing him on my television.
