Nothing he pitched actually worked all that great, but he was a great pitchman. His loud commercials are legendary.

A nice touch from his friends to honor him with the blue Oxyclean shirts. Advertising even at the funeral is probably what he would have wanted.

I still can't believe he's gone. :( He was so full of life and such a happy guy. I'll miss him, and I'll really miss seeing the awesome friendship between Billy & Sully. They were hilarious together. See ya up in heaven, buddy.

I think I see Billy's last commercial. Want to eliminated those annoying dings on your casket's finish from all those clumsey pall barriers? The DING KING easily pops out any dents to your casket's metal finish. You can rest assure. HERE'S HOW TO ORDER.

I'M BILLY MAYS WITH "REAPER KEEPER!" THE ONLY LIQUID DETERGENT DESIGNED TO KEEP THE GRIM REAPER SMELLING FRESH AS A SUMMER DAY!

I couldn't stand his commercials but after watching the 'Pitchmen' marathon on Discovery I think I may have misunderstood the man. As much as his commercials wore out my mute button, I think I'm going to miss them in some sick way.

He heart goes out to his family and friends.

BUT WAIT!
THERE'RE MORE!

Sadly, no - there isn't.

R.I.P Billy Mays - you were one crazy SOB on the TV.
