Billy Mays 1958-2009

TV pitchman Billy Mays was found dead this morning in his home. The so-called king of the infomercials was known for his shouting approach at viewers and his miracle products, among them – Oxi-Clean, Kaboom!, Turbo Tiger and the Big City Slider Station. Late night and early morning paid programming will never be the same without him.
