Billy Mays -- What a Piece ... of Art

8/19/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Billy Mays -- the late great pitchman -- will be selling again tonight, but this time it's images of Billy himself that will be raking in the cash.

Billy's "Pitchmen" hosting successor Anthony Sullivan is throwing a party for tonight's premiere episode in Tampa, FL -- and the bash will feature an auction of Billy-inspired works of art.

We're told several of the art pieces were created by crew members from the show, including Anthony. Proceeds from the silent auction will benefit Focus on Renewal -- a community charity selected by Billy's son.

Besides fine art, the 500 guests also get to watch the premiere, sip on Pitchmopolitans (no joke) ... and, of course, get a cool giveaway -- the Fridge Locker, an invention featured on the new season.

Kaboom!

Who freaking cares about this guy. This is as useless as snookie the midget umpalumpa. He hawked crap that didn't work and people liked it. This dude was a tool like his tap light flaming buddy putting on the show.

Sullivan should be ashamed of himself for using the corpse of Mays to continue to sell crap.

I thought his voice was icky. It sounded like he was whispering and yelling all at the same time, all strained-like. I never GOT or FELT him. ...Of course, I get annoyed by the Excedrin commercial with the young girl who wags her head and talks all creepy-like while talking about her migraines and anything that begins with 1-800-AKS-____. However, all in all, I say live and let live. They say one man's junk is another's treasure, and if people want to spend their money in such a way, they should go for it. ...Just don't aKs me to go. :o)
