    Infomercial King Billy Mays Passes Away - Age 50

    This is sad. I've always liked his commercials and have been watching the series Pitchmen on Discovery since it started.

    Police: TV pitchman Billy Mays found dead at home - Yahoo! News

    TAMPA, Fla. – Tampa police say Billy Mays, the television pitchman known for his boisterous hawking of products such as Orange Glo and OxiClean, has died. He was 50.
    Authorities say Mays was pronounced dead Sunday morning after being found by his wife at home. There were no signs of a break-in, and investigators do not suspect foul play. The coroner's office expects to have an autopsy done by Monday afternoon.
    Mays' wife, Deborah Mays, says the family doesn't expect to make any public statements and asked for privacy.
    Mays was also featured on the reality TV show "Pitchmen" on the Discovery Channel, which followed Mays and Anthony Sullivan in their marketing jobs.

    Sad, but it happens. How many people do you think die per day? The fact that it's 5 celebrities is the only difference. If I was in a car wreck it probably wouldn't even make it on the news, so unless these celebs become close friends of mine, I have a hard time feeeling overly concerned. Do you think any of these celebs would bat an eye if they heard you died? Probably not.

    I've always said that if we put our TV's out on the curb on Friday, there would be troops in the streets on Monday.

    They mentioned he was on a airplane and the front tire blew. Something hit him on the head. The next day his wife found him dead inside the house.
