Infomercial Spokesman BILLY MAYS(!!!!!) Has Died


Holy crap. BILLY MAYS has died. (He yelled in every infomercial, I thought it appropriate to yell his name). Can a dude yell himself to death? Sorry.

The Associated Press is reporting:

TAMPA, Fla. – Billy Mays, the burly, bearded television pitchman whose boisterous hawking of products such as Orange Glo and OxiClean made him a pop-culture icon, has died. He was 50.

Tampa police said Mays was found unresponsive by his wife Sunday morning. A fire rescue crew pronounced him dead at 7:45 a.m. It was not immediately clear how he died. He said he was hit on the head when an airplane he was on made a rough landing Saturday, and Mays' wife told investigators the TV personality didn't feel well before he went to bed that night."

Hey--I bought OxiClean for the first time in my life yesterday. Oooh.
