RIP Billy Mays

Still coping with my MJ withdrawal on Sunday I came home from church to find out that Billy Mays has passed. Now most ppl saw my facebook, gchat and Twitter reactions and thought I was crazy. I was a 90s child without cable. Early Saturday before the cartoons you only had infomercials consisting of Solid Gold and Billy Mays (and those SmartMop ppl). I convinced my parents to get Orange Glo and OxiClean. He was a revolutionary in the advertising world, and since I lived in the world of advertising journalism for a while, I feel a special connection to the work he did and the way in which infomercials seriously impact the advertising world.
