TV pitchman Billy Mays found dead / What A Week

Boy this sure is the catchphrase of the week for American Pop Culture as now Billy Mays has passed away this morning.

May he too Rest In Peace..

and now the infomercial world is dominated by the annoying Sham Wow Vince, who's most recent foray into the news was for biting the lips of a hired prostitute we talked about here a few months back.

Although it sure seems like he's been around forever, he, like Michael Jackson, was only 50 years old and sure leaves this world far too soon.

Strangely enough he was involved in a rough US Airways plane landing in Florida just last night and was actually interviewed by a local Florida TV station as the flight landed shown here below:

It seems quite possible the two events are related, as he complained to his wife and in this video that he did hit his head pretty good, which could easily explain his death due to some undetected internal brain bleeding

And authorities are ruling nothing out since the death is such a surprise as he was actually returning from signing a long term contract to do some more infomercials and television work for Taco Bell.

U.S. Airways confirmed that Mays was among the passengers on a flight that made a rough landing Saturday afternoon at Tampa International Airport, leaving debris on the runway after apparently blowing its front tires.

Tampa Bay's Fox television affiliate interviewed Mays after the landing. ''All of a sudden as we hit, you know it was just the hardest hit, all the things from the ceiling started dropping,'' MyFox Tampa Bay quoted him as saying. ''It hit me on the head, but I got a hard head.''

Talk about a freaky couple of weeks as far as Hollywood pop culture stars deaths go to say the very least....

TV pitchman Billy Mays found dead at home


TAMPA, Fla.---- Tampa police say Billy Mays, the television pitchman known for his boisterous hawking of products such as Orange Glo and OxiClean, has died. He was 50.

Authorities say Mays was pronounced dead Sunday morning after being found by his wife at home. There were no signs of a break-in, and investigators do not suspect foul play. The coroner's office expects to have an autopsy done by Monday afternoon.

Mays' wife, Deborah Mays, says the family doesn't expect to make any public statements and asked for privacy.

Mays was also featured on the reality TV show "Pitchmen" on the Discovery Channel, which followed Mays and Anthony Sullivan in their marketing jobs
