Billy Mays III: I Want to Be Haunted By My Father

10/26/2009 1:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Billy MaysBilly Mays III -- the late pitchman's son -- is hosting a Billy Mays costume contest for Halloween in honor of his dead father ... and get this, zombie Billy Mays submissions are encouraged.

Little Billy posted the following on his website:

"Halloween is approaching rapidly and it goes without saying that "deceased celebrities" (and balloon boy) will most likely be a huge theme at every gathering.

There will no doubt be a multitude of people dressed as Billy Mays (or zombie Billy Mays).. it is one of the easiest costumes of all time to put together. (Beard, blue button-down, khakis, prop product, etc..)
"

Billy wants people to send him pics of their Billy getups -- the winner gets a bunch of prizes ... including, of course, a tub of OxiClean.

Think what you want Billy-Bob Jr. but no one like your Dad or his commercials. He was a loud mouthed drud addict and everyone turned off his commercials the second they came on.
Halloween costumes ? Don't flatter yourself.

Maybe Billy Sr. can yell (project his voice?) "JUPITER JACK" in the early morning hours and wake Jr. out of a dead sleep?

Damn, 2009 will be etched in history. My family will use Halloween as an excuse to worship the dead too. Especially #3 on the list. We're HUGE fans.

It's funny how ignorant some of the people are who post here.

So he died coke.
So his son wants to do something, anything - to feel connected to him. So what if his son makes money, that IS what capitalism is about.

At least he didn't work at your church or school while molesting your children, work as a cop so he can tazer an 80 old lady, or perhaps get a job at a hospital and become an 'Angel of Death'.

Some of you people really need to get your villains sorted out or at a minimum get a better quality of aluminum for your hats.
...And for the love of evolution, STOP watching NASCAR, and Glenn Beck.
