Holy crap. Did not realize he had a mugshot. I am not even the least bit surprised, but was not expecting that.

Agreed. He seemed like a really nice guy with a great real-world personality. I'm pretty sure the Shamwow guy is not a guy I want to have lunch with. Not unless I need something slap chopped.

Hey I wasn't making fun of the situation. I have a lot of respect for Billy Mays and thought he was a funny guy.

Order three dead celebrities, and get the 4th one free!

Nobody else brings that kind of commitment to the job.

Here's a classy note from an article in Ad Sense- something I have to read at work.

One of the companies that used him as a pitchman are temporarily removing his spots from TV. They're not sure if this is going to be a permanent decision but will discuss the issue with his wife at the funeral.

This is about as classy as Jackson's dad pimping his record label with Usher to the media asking about his son's death (would have posted that in the Jackson thread, but already saw someone do it).

Stay classy America.

Actually from articles I have read they have already talked to the family and the family WANTED ad's to stay on because Billy would've wanted that. This version is the worst I've heard

Well thank the gods for that. It was Ad Age, not Ad Sense. That snippit was from under a heading of "What Billy Would Have Wanted," but it made it sound like the writer was speculating that this is what Billy would have wanted. It also made it sound like that they'd be talking for the first time at the funeral, which is a weird sentence just to throw into the article.

Yea true. Legally I'm sure the family had to be notified about it's decisions in regards to BIllys career rather quickly
