Post by Mako on Sun Jun 28, 2009 6:35 pm

Today he died, at age 50. This makes me sad. I will miss his commercials.

I seriously doubt in calling his death a "high profile". At least don't compare it to MJ's or Fawcett's.

Anyway, rest in peace, guy-I've-never-heard-of

If you lived in the US you would think differently, they play his commercials all the time.....

It would be the same as if I posted a well known argentinian. Like, for example, last week Fernando Peña died, he was really well known. Doubt any of you even heard of him

That's why I said it would be different if you lived here. Razz

Billy Mays is pretty much a household name when it comes to infomercials here in the states. Which is why his death warranted a front page story on Yahoo.com.
I honestly didn't even know who Fawcett is, that is until I read the news that she's dead.
Just because I grouped them together doesn't mean they're equally famous. Though they are all "well known".

Billy Mays contributed something that nobody else will ever be able to duplicate, nor to fill the gap now that he's missing. His death was the most significant loss we've had in the past few days, IMO.

Again, if you lived in the US you would think differently. He was the main man when it came to infomercials. Sad

Come on guys, do we really need to argue about everything?

If he wasn't high profile he wouldn't have threads created for him and all this internet attention over his death. But after all, it doesn't matter. He was an overall nice guy and gave us many laughs with his commercials

I just got my order of Impact Gel insoles in the mail last night, and I'm trying them out today. Thus far, they're working just great.

Much love to Billy Mays for making me aware of Impact Gel.
