This Just In...Billy Mays is Dead

Both Wikipedia and TMZ have confirmed that TV product pitchman Billy Mays was found dead today at home in Tampa, Florida. Billy Mays was just 50 years old (July 20, 1958 - June 28, 2009). His wife found him early this morning and called the ambulance; he was pronounced dead at 7:45 AM. He is known for pitching all kinds of products including OxyClean, Kaboom, Mighty Putty, Sham Wow, Orange Clean and lots more. Check out this annoying video from YouTube:

I was shocked to read the news the other day. OXY Clean TV commercials will never be the same.
