Since the end of August into October the number of hits on a post I made ten years ago on pitchman Billy Mays has seen a large number of hits, yet looking in the news I don’t see anything in particular that would drum up interest. Kind of weird.
If you haven’t read it before here is the post: Billy Mays
Though he annoyed a lot of people with his yelling during commercials I thought he seemed like an interesting character and, as chronicled in the post, the TV show Pitchmen, starring him and his buddy Sully, showed me what seemed like a driven and hard working family man.
Now to watch a few commercials to remember the man!
Do yourself a favor and watch this episode (12) where both Billy and Sully talk about why they do what they do. It really is interesting!
