    Is there any salesman anyone actually "likes"? The point of a salesperson is to buy the product, not to like or dislike the guy.

    As for me, he was a bit of an internet celebrity and I was quite shocked to hear that he died yesterday. RIP Billy.

    Believe it or not Billy Mays was responsible for me breaking up
    with my last girlfriend.
    I was walking through WalMart and saw a shelf full of Kaboom!!!
    and because the Ding King I bought did not work so well,
    when I saw the KaBoom I got to thinking I would like to hit
    Billy with the DingKing and scream "KaBoom".
    That got me to laughing and my girlfriend though I was laughing at
    her and got mad at me .
    One thing lead to another and "KaBoom" , No more Girlfriend

    I never said anything about liking or disliking the person, I commented about his "style" of salesmanship. There are some styles of salesmanship that don't bother me, low key, helpful, etc. His loud, rambunctious, in your face style got on my nerves.

    Billy is the saddest of the 4 for me. Michael Jackson...REALLY? who didn't see that coming? I thought Billy's "Pitchmen" show was pretty funny usually.

    RIP

    I think the ShamWOW guy killed Billy, the Police should definitely follow up on that angle.

    CSI arrived on sight to check for blood evidence, but the Sham Wow absorbed all the evidence. CSI was left high and dry.

    IMO, his death is the real tragedy. I consider him more an icon than MJ. MJ ruined his icon status.
