The NY Times has confirmed the death as well. 50 is young, I wonder if the plane accident resulted in a Natasha Richardson type of thing or whether it was drugs or an undiagnosed illness.

 

I enjoyed his pitches for Oxy Clean - he was an excellent pitchman.

Wouldn't surprise me if the luggage konk on the head resulted in a concussion/brain bleed which caused his death a day later. It's not an unusual medical scenario. Robyn

billy mays was the best tv pitch-person ever.

 

no he wasn't, that british guy was better.

 

no he wasn't, dyson was better with his vacuums.

 

but dyson only did one product. Mays did 50. and he did them for years.

 

but dyson changed the vacuum industry. Mays sold laundry detergent.

 

but American's inherently trust the british accent

 

british maybe, but not welsh

 

you guys are all nuts. no one beats Mike Wallace hawking Lucky Strike cigarettes. That guy could get the pope to smoke.

 

you idiot, prior to pope jpII, they all smoked.

 

white smoke or black smoke?

 

but seriously, no one had the track records of billy mays. we didn't know shit about pitch men until billy mays. before him, there were only products.

 

you're just a bunch of mysoginists. suzzane somers was hawking arthiritis-causing thigh masters when billy mays was selling insurance. and let's be honest, they all owe a debt of gratitude to elizabeth arden

 

now you're just mixing genres. we're not discussing sales people, or even televisions sales people. we're discussing pitch-people.

 

but i think we're discussing infomercial sales people and let's face it, the infomercial was started by and for women.

 

actually, the first infomercials were children's television cart

Good job, Stone.

 

But everyone knows Tom Carvel and John Cameron Swayze and Mike Wallace started the pitchman business

Can't forget Ron Popeil.

 

If it weren't for the Pocket Fisherman, the Berlin Wall would still be standing.
