Billy Mays, RIP

The famous pitchman Billy Mays has passed away at his home in Tampa. Famous for promoting OxyClean, Orange Glo, and the Hercules Hook, among other things, he became well known in the "as seen on TV" world.

I won't deny it, I loved that guy. His genial manner, his voice, his hand motions... and I've been using OxyClean to get out stains for a while. Er, well, the generic brand now, but still.

If you need a refresher, here's a characteristic video:

ADDENDUM: Here is a comic I made about Billy Mays and posted on a forum around two years ago. All in jest, of course.

Note the characteristic hand gestures ;-)
