I’m not going to lie, Billy Mays got on my nerves. Every time I saw him on television, shilling some new, “amazing” product, I thought, “Why does he always have to yell?”
But the yelling made him stand out, and it got him endless commercials and even his own reality show. And while it got on my nerves before, I’ve noticed my television’s been a lot quieter in the days since his death, and believe it or not, that makes me kind of sad. R.I.P., Mr. OxyClean.
