Billy Mays is dead. But since he's the greatest pitch man in the history of your mother, he's still hocking shit from the grave. His latest commercial just came out - 23 days after his death. That's right, Mighty Tape must be sold. I watched the whole commercial kinda hoping they were going to offer a Billy Mays memorial version; like maybe a simple black tape, or one that has little pictures of his head on it. I'd be all over that. The best part of the commercial comes at 1m 30s when Billy is underwater - wearing his trademark denim shirt - slapping the Mighty Tape around. It brought a tear to my eye to see the big guy workin' his magic even though he's deader than a doornail. If only he'd come out with Mighty Tape about 24 days ago... I'm not saying it would've helped cure a massive coronary blockage but the shit couldn't have hurt. Stay strong.
