Hi Billy Mays…..not so here any more

Hi Billy Mays here for oxiclean the stain specialist, powered by the air you breath. Activated by the water you and I drink. Its mother nature approved, and its safe on your colored fabrics.

Most people first saw Billy Mays on his oxiclean ad. Still today that is one of the biggest products people will remember him for.

He later made more ads for products such as Orange Glow, Kaboom, Handy Switch, Mighty Mendit, Hercules Hook, Awesome Auger, Zorbeez, Tool Bandit, Gopher, Grater Plater.

Billy had very strict guide lines before he would pitch a product. It had to solve a problem, be “demonstrable”, and it had to be for almost everyone.

Oxiclean shown on the home shopping network before it was turned into a mass television campaign.

Team Fortress 2 parody of kaboom.

Another parody of kaboom, dont by Jabo0odyDubs.

Sham Wow was an attack from Vince to badly hurt the sales of Billy Mays Zorbeez, which had a higher level of absorbency, sadly this worked because Americans rather buy from a creepy guy than the awesome guy.

Its actually the same product made in the same country….almost the same demo. Only Billy did it first.

PITCHMEN is the newest show on discovery channel showing behind the scenes the ads you see on tv. It is unknown what discovery will do with the show at this point.

The last known video of Billy When he was alive is from the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.

More to come later when the cause of death is discovered.

  2. R.I.P.

  3. wait, why does this have tags like awesome, german, jackson and jail? O.O

    • I don’t know. Invader56 isn’t exactly right in the head sometimes.

    • cause sham wow is made in germany advertised by the sham wow guy and he was in jail, and jackson is probably because of micheal jackson since he is dead too.
