This page is dedicated to the greatest pitchman who ever pitched a product. Rest in peace, Mr. Billy Mays.
Updated June 28, 2012
“Hi, Billy Mays here!” For years, that was the opening line for scores of commercials featuring this master pitchman. Mainly associated with products used around the home, his commercial gigs included health insurance and even snowboards. Although some found his maximum-volume voice annoying, his old-school pitchman technique put millions in his pocket and a Bentley in his garage. In April 2009, Billy achieved even greater fame by starring with Anthony Sullivan in the Discovery Channel television series Pitchmen. The hit show profiled the behind-the-scenes world of inventing and marketing “As Seen on TV” products.
