FTV: Gesticulate. That's the word that gets me in the zone.

What word gets YOU in the zone?

This is a crappy misleading headline. The video is 10 minutes and Billy Mays is in it for like 40 seconds, with the rest of the video consisting of some British pitchman's bloopers.

Still a pretty funny video, but nevertheless, a misleading headline.

I don't don't think that it's shipping and "handling" anymore, I believe they now call it "processing," which is just a way of saying that they can charge whatever the fark they want.

Anyway, everyone says that Billy Mayes was a super nice guy. I wouldn't know as I was too busy chucking empty whiskey bottles at the TV whenever he came on.

is he someone famous or something?

pup.socket: is he someone famous or something?

Yes, and now he's dead. So the conclusion we can derive is that you should never become famous.
 
2009-07-10 08:27:16 AM
I miss him so much -- who's going to yell at me so nicely on TV now?
 
2009-07-10 08:48:11 AM
I thought he was sort of cool until I saw his TV show.
Kinda douchey.
 
2009-07-10 09:15:56 AM
I miss Billy. I saw a commercial for an exercise device for your neck and thought "Billy wouldn't sell that"

Yeah, too much coke often gets confused with "heart".

I gotta admit, the tribute episode of "pitchmen" put a large knot in my throat at the end of the show when Sully was talking about how much he missed Billy.

It just made me really sad after watching the show since it came on, because he was a pretty real guy. He worked to provide for his family, regretted how he wasnt there for his family then but brought his son in to work with him and was building a good relationship there. He built his life from the ground up with his talent and was incredibly good at what he did. Nothing that hasnt already been said, but thats my thoughts.

i only saw the dude flipping through the channels late at night, and last night i was flipping through again and caught of piece of a Pitchmen rerun. Seems they liked to bust his chops about Vince and the Sham-Wow. pretty funny.

BILLY MAYS HAS SOLD 124 PAIR OF SHOES TO LEGLESS PEOPLE, OUT OF 130 LEGLESS PEOPLE HE WAS ACTUALLY TRYING TO SELL TO.

ONE GUY DARED BILLY MAYS TO TRY SELLING VOLCANIC LAVA AS A DRAIN CLEANER. 2 MINUTES LATER THAT GUY BOUGHT 30 CASES OF LAVA FOR $20 A POP.

OXYCLEAN ISN'T REALLY JUST A DETERGENT, ITS THE CONCENTRATED POWER OF BILLY MAYS'S AWESOMENESS.

THEY WERE GOING TO PUT BILLY MAYS ON MOUNT RUSHMORE BUT THE HIS BEARD WAS TOO LOUD FOR THE ROCKS

/my fav infomercial is still the Magic Bullet. I watch it like a rerun of Seinfeld. It is really one of the best and most entertaining infomercials I have seen because the idea that I am being sold something is not as blatant.
//maybe ron popiel is better
///set it and forget it

Billy Mays was such a great pitch man the Jackson family had him killed so he would go to heaven and sell God on letting MJ in.
 
2009-07-10 09:27:30 PM
Billy Mays really grew on me. At first, I hated him. But slowly, some part of me warmed up to him. I dont have cable but when I was at a friends house, I caught pitchmen, and I really liked it. And after that, I kinda loved seeing him. He was a good guy

/yeah right, he probably ate babies
 
2009-07-11 01:50:03 AM
I didn't really like Mays until I saw pitchmen. According to the show (I don't know for sure) they helped sell products from people who needed the help, like the old crippled dude who made the Awesome Auger or the other pitchman who's life savings went into curing him of cancer.

And yeah, had to laugh at all the shiat he took for Vince's Shamwow.

(if you get bored, look for the cockwow video. definitely not safe for kids...except maybe german ones)
 
2009-07-11 02:14:00 AM
Yeah, I totally dug Pitchmen, too. I was always raving about it, so my friends sms'd me when he died. I hope they can keep the show going somehow... Maybe with Sully working to find a new Pitchman partner, auditioning them, trying different people with different products.

Here's hoping.

At least John Parkin is still alive and setting car hoods on fire:

andrewagill: At least John Parkin is still alive and setting car hoods on fire:

THAT'S THE GUY!!

For the love all that's unholy, I've been trying to figure that out for years, because some radio car talk show (no, not Car Talk) had kept doing the "Weah gonna rub it down with cah wax and then LOIT IT ON FOIAH"! Had me laughing for days...and then I told Hubby this, now everything that's car related we say the same thing...only he nails it.

/THANK YOU!!!

I can't see it working without Billy. His weird ability to be humble and a prima donna at the same time, plus his interaction with Sully, is why the show worked. No new guy will have the history either as a pitchman or with Sully to pull it off.

I fell in love with the guy after seeing him as an auto expert in that car wax infomercial and then later seeing him as a master chef for the cookware infomercial.

A BBC interview with him, if you're interested.

/Can't find the original Auri infomericial
//At least, I can't find it in English.

Apparently you didn't watch the video ;-/
 
2009-07-11 06:54:26 PM
Yeah, Mr. Billy Mays is in it for at least 2-3 minutes, though the Youtube headline is more accurate... "Infomercial bloopers with Billy Mays and more!"

A life wasted on peddling plastic crap. Rot in hell, garbage man.
