I just saw him hawking something on TV. That guy could sell ice to an eskimo!

So, in 1 sentence, what do you think of this guy...

I change the channel every time his adverts come on. He is the most annoying man on earth.

I don't have a problem with him, actually he's rather entertaining because the commercials he does seem so phony that they become amusing. He's a long time salesman that would probably endorse just about anything that rolls in the $$$, but I have no problem with him personally.

Mute!

But then I think, somebody must listen to him. How many of us drive a Bentley?

When I hear Billy Mays, I think of Pittsburgh, and his dad rebuilding my buddies cement block wall.

When I hear Billy Mays I think of corn...you know....maze.

After seeing his photo I've seen him on tv advertising things. But I couldn't tell you what.
