Billy Mays Hate Mail

i haets u billy mayz
i haets u billy mayz

Ever since we posted our Top Ten Billy Mays Commercials, we’ve been getting a lot of email from folks who are not fond of the Billy Mays portion of their television viewing experience. Probably because our website appeared in the search results when they searched for Mr. Mays, they decided to email us in order to share their opinions of Billy. As a continuing feature of our new blog, we’ll share what some of our visitors think of Billy Mays.

Our first correspondent, Bernie, speaks from a position of self-appointed authority:

I have been a TV watcher and media auditor for over 50 years. Never, ever, have I observed a spokesperson more obnoxious than Billy Mays. He is way over-amplified and annoying. I will never, ever purchase anything he endorses…..and will gleefully spread the word.

What exactly is a media auditor? Sounds like a fancy way to say couch potato. I will watch with interest the progress of Bernie’s glee-fueled boycott of Mays-endorsed products.

Kitty, our next pen pal, may or may not understand the irony of her text formatting:

ARE YOU THE ONES TO WRITE ABOUT BILLY MAYS SHOUTING COMMERCIALS??
THEY ARE EXTREMELY DISTURBING….I ACTUALLY DESPISE THEM!!!! SO WHY DO YOU INSIST ON USING THIS MAN YOU PUT IN AN ‘ECHO’ CHAMBER,….PLUS ‘SHOUTING’ AT US TO SELL A PRODUCT ON TELEVISION?? HE WOULD DO EVEN BETTER IF HE SPOKE NORMALLY……WE KNOW WHO HE IS NOW. WE ARE NOT DEAF!! I IMMEDIATELY TURN HIM OFF AND DO NOT BUY ANY OF HIS PRODUCTS.
WE ARE HIGHLY DISTURBED BY THIS SHOUTING IDIOT!!! (INCLUDES THE IDIOTS WHO INSTRUCT BILLY MAYS, TOO!!)

The other interesting tidbit here is her assumption that Billy Mays has handlers who instruct him on how to deliver his pitches. I think Billy probably produces and/or directs most of the spots in which he appears.

  1. all you ***** that are writing *** should go **** yourselfs. Billy Mays is the MAN! RIP

  2. I hope that anybody that wished Billy Mays to be dead, go away, or attack him can look at themselves in the mirror now. The man that you grew to hate in now gone for good. Sure his loud voice on TV may have been annoying, but that was to get your attention. And it worked. Whenever he graced the screen, he almost became a member of the family whether you loved him or hated him. Billy was the best at what he did whether you bought the products or not. Those who loved Billy will miss his big smile and big voice for his commercials. And those who hated him for his big smile and big voice will also miss him because they don’t know who they hate now. Their primary subject of hate is gone. Hope you are all happy.

    RIP Billy Mays. You will be missed by everyone.

  3. Billy Mays, and his fake enthusiasm. The man is paid to get people’s attention. Now, honestly, no one would be on here talking about the man if he hadn’t gotten their attention right?? right. It annoys alot of people, but he isn’t after those people….he is after the people who focus on the product after he gets their attention with his high-volume, high-pitched, super-enthused pitch. He is a pitch-man, that is his job….and I’m sure he has a garage/workshop full of tools and gadgets he has pitched….as well as some nice cars, boats, vacation properties, stock-options, and of course cash. Do I like his style? Nope. Do I fault him for doing it? Absolutely not. If it gets too annoying, the TV has a handy dandy OFF feature. I find myself catching the first minute or two of anything he is pitching….because he does grab attention…then I change the channel and watch something else that interests me. He is getting paid , so he’s putting everything he has into his “performance”. If his promo’s didn’t get results…do you honestly think he would be hired or in demand for people trying to get their product out into the world??

  4. no matter what BILLY MAYS selling i will not buy it ! !

    such an annoying voice i have to turn the channel every time his crap is on

    who is sooooo stupid to have him promo their product ???

  5. Billy Mays is what he is: a smooth and slick salesman these companies have used to hawk their products. I’ve tried a few, buying them long after the TV ad, and a few work well. But I never bought them because of the pitch or due to Mays. Still, let’s take heart…at least the Sham Wow guy’s ads have vanished since he got arrested for beating up a hooker. Maybe Mays will do something equally as stupid. Then again, that guy with the Australian accent might just come back.

  6. Is this idiot paid by the decibel?

    I refuse to purchase anything he touts and I mute him every chance I get.

    He’s hating it all the way to the bank.

  7. Why doesn’t Billy endorse the company that he buys his hair and beard dye from. Because it makes the user look like a dork. Check him out on High Def. Bad dye job

  8. I HATE Billy Mays the most irritating freak EVER to hit the screen. People who hire him are as dumb as he is. If anything he makes me want to boycott the products he hawks like a snake oil sales schlep.

  9. I absolutely hate Billy Mays… I turn the station as soon as I hear that loud, high pitched voice..
    I can’t even tell you what he sells because I turn the station very quickly..
    He causes migraines… He is so very very annoying…
    I have wondered what his “normal” voice would sound like if he didn’t raise it many octaves and shout !! Maybe it’s even normal sounding..
    I am pleased to find that there are so many other people out there that feel the same way and I’m not being overly critical..

  10. I hate Billy Mays. I have to turn the channel quickly as soon as I see him. I wish everyone would boycott whatever he is promoting, I know I will.
    His voice is so obnoxious!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. After watching a couple episodes of “Pitchmen” I come away with the impression these two are merely vultures. They get paid, win or lose. Think of how many people pay these bottom dwellers to investigate or research the product, produce commercials and “endorse” that crap. They have their hands out at every turn. Both of them rich with no risk and now a TV program to advertise them even more and make them even MORE money.

  12. Why is he always yelling? That’s so irritating, I just have to change the channel immediately… and I have disposable income. You should probably re-think your approach, Bill!

  13. I do not even know what product this idiot is selling. When I hear his obnoxious screaming I immediately change channels.
    He should be committed to a mental facility for observation (along with the sponsor who hired him).

  14. Billy Mays should do ALL of us a favor and disappear. He has made his millions. He is no longer an asset to the advertising community. We are tired of him and his day is over. Move along Billy. Retire and move far, far away. We all hate you anyway.

    I personally hate him. I mean really, really hate him. When his ads come on TV…. I turn the channel.

  15. I bet OxyClean & the other products this obnoxious anus hawks would sell twice as much product if they tried a better (read: gentler) marketing campaign.

    To think that THIS MANY people are actively trying to avoid the products because of the marketing assault they’ve experienced from this guy – imagine all the success these companies are not seeing!

  16. That man must be shut down for his ignorance and unpleasantness to us viewers.

  17. When i was not very tired and was told to go to bed I would just turn the T.V. on and watch it until i dosed off. So i would be about to fall asleep but right as i close my eyes…
    HI!!!!!!!!!!!! BILLY MAYS HERE WILL MIGHTY PUDDY!!!!!!!!! At that point i would get up I would get curse at the T.V. (way out of my normal behavior) and then promised myself net to buy his crap and made it my goal to reach that screaming lunatic a peace of my mind.

  18. OK, that does it!.. I was watching the discovery channel (like I do allot for some somewhat quality programming) and all of the sudden here comes this new ridiculous show called Pitchmen!.. I about fell out of my chair!! Is America and American networks becoming that dumb and ignorant to waste their money on not only the Billy Mays Ad’s they run 24/7 but now actually air a TV show that tries to make these morons look good?!!. WTF?

    I remember the days of “Ronco and the $19.95 ads back in the 80’s. But these new string of Billy Mays (and everyone else like him) commercials make me wanna throw a brick through ALL my TV’s, cancel my cable service, kick in ALL my TV speakers, and never watch network TV again!!.. If selling crappy products and having to scream to do it makes money, then I think I should get into this garbage job myself if people and Americans, TV networks are now really that stupid!…

    I will never watch discovery channel again if they continue to air such a ridiculous show that has nothing to do with science, knowledge, learning, etc.. and as far as Billy Mays and the rest of his clones goes, I’ll NEVER buy ANYTHING they endorse, sell, talk about, etc.. I’m even pissed off that I’m wasting my brain cells right now writing this Rant!!!..

    Billy Mays is a IDIOT!!!!

  19. “…lots of people trust Billy Mays and the products he sells…” It just goes to show how many idiots live in this world.

  20. I work nights so during the day I keep the TV on low while I sleep. I can’t tell you how many times this annoying sub human wakes me up! I really hate this animal! There is no way I could hear him without rushing for the remote to change the channel. That’s right I can’t even keep the tv on the same channel while he is on. I sincerely home this guy jumps off a building! I would never buy anything he endorses!

  21. I think Billy Mays is prostituting himself to everyone for product endorsement. I would have seriously consider buying these products if Billy Mays DID NOT endorse the. BILLY MAYS IS RUINING PERFECTLY GOOD PRODUCTS BY ENDORSING THEM. THESE COMPANIES WHO HIRED BILLY MAYS FOR THEIR COMMERCIALS MUST BE STUPID !!! LETS BOYCOTT THESE COMPANIES AND THEIR PRODUCTS WHO HIRE BILLY MAYS IN THEIR COMMERCIALS. bottom line i dont wanna see billy mays on tv again 🙂

  22. I love Billy Mays. (:
    I think his loudness is great. It is, indeed, annoying, but quite hilarious.

  23. He is a loud, annoying, idiot. Now he is doing a spoof ESPN commercial. It is annoying as well.

  24. I really have to concur with everyone here; I just saw another commercial of Billy’s and was reminded of how disruptive and annoying he is. I wish to God this forum was a petition to get him off the air–my mute button is taking a beating. I, too, will purchase nothing he promotes, for the sheer principle of rejecting that which is so callously shoved down my throat. At least the ShamWow guy makes me giggle; this meathead makes me want to vomit. I hear he muscles the other people he works with because “he is the STAR”. I have news for him–even Ron Popeil didn’t annoy me as much as this classless bag of wind.

  25. Send this moron to some country that has no TV.
    Get him out of my sight and off my TV.
    To his sponsers: I will buy nothing that he endorses.

  26. I mute this ranting dope everytime I see him come on my tv. He is offensive and invading my home with his YELLING!
    Just because he says it the loudest does not make it the best product!
    Stop it stop it stop it!!!!
    I would not buy ANYTHING from him simply because he is so dam irritating!!!
    From what I read, the products he pushes sux too!
    Who on earth decided he would be a good pitchman!??? HE’S NOT!!!!!

    I’d sooner listen to a political speech than this guy. At least they only lie to me in a normal tone of voice!

  27. I would not purchase anything that this idiot promotes. His voice is annoying, he is a good reason not to buy a product he is trying to sell.
    When we hear his badgering screams we race to the mute button.
    Any company hiring this clown deserves to go under!!

  28. I miss a lot of TV content because I have to mute my TV whenever this $$$$$$$ Billy Mays comes on! It’s either that or smash my TV.

    Please people Do Not buy anything this $$$$ $$$$$$ is pitching and they will take this moron off!

    Thank you.

  29. Billy Mays is an egotistical Eddie Munster looking big baby. That would have been cool if they sealed him in the box and the saw broke. Of course the box should be sound proof. What the heck is his deal?? Let Anthony do the pitches. After all the guy did let a mini van run over his hand without thinking twice.

  30. Billy Mays is a lying scumbag and his products are hyped-up crap. He uses camera tricks to make his garbage work. It’s the same kind of crap that Madison Avenue has been cramming down our throats for decades. Back in the black-and-white TV days, commercials would show a side-by-side comparison of two laundry detergents and one stack would be clearly whiter than the other. The “whiter” stack was actually baby blue in color; baby blue looks whiter on B&W film than white does.

    Whenever you see Billy Mays make a stain magically disappear with his stain remover, look carefully. It’s always brownish. And, when the stain cleaner hits it, the leading edge of the stain turns a purple-black color before it disappears. That’s because the “mystery stain” is really iodine tincture. The cleaner doesn’t make it disappear, it oxidizes the iodine into its colorless form. It’s the same chemistry behind the old bartender’s trick where they change red wine into white wine by distracting the patron and slipping a shot of ammonia in the wine; it oxidizes the colorant in the wine making it look like white wine.

    Next time you see his commercial where he supposedly sands the floor and then mops it shiny again, watch closely. If you have a DVR, rewind and watch slowly. The sander kicks up a huge puff of dust as soon as it hits the floor. That’s because the “sander” is really a polshing disk coated with baby powder.

    My question is: we have a hundred stupid reality shows on TV where annoying people get voted off, WHY CAN’T WE VOTE BILLY MAYS’ LYING, DECEITFUL, ORANGE-OIL-SCENTED ASS OFF THE AIR!

  31. “I used to hate the Head-On commercials, that is until I had to listen to Billy Mays. This man makes a living out of being so loud and obnoxious that it makes you feel like you are 8 years old again with your Dad yelling at you and poking you in the chest as his spit sprays you in the face. I would never buy anything Billy Mays endorses because in my book it is negative advertising just like Head-On. God’s judgment be upon Billy Mays and his stupid dyed beard, This man deserves to go in Hell with his own commercials airing over and over again as an eternal punishment. Die Billy, DIE”

    By John on Dec 19, 2008

    With the childhood you had, it is no wonder that you are so miserable and jealous. Do you beat your wife?

  32. Spare us the jealous, angry, desperate personal attacks and stick to the facts: Billy Mays endorses some pretty crappy products these days. He makes a mint I’m sure, but he’d do far better if he didn’t sell out
    and endorse only good quality stuff.

  33. I cannot stand hime! I WILL NOT purchase products endorsed by this loudmouth!! I figure if a company hires this idiot, their products must be worthless!

  34. Amen! to all of the comments on how obnoxious this freak is. I think that if someone tied his hands behind is back he would be completely unable to speak. His gestures are outrageous and his screaming could make the pope get up and cuss at his commercials. Yet, somehow this guy keeps getting more and more requests to do commercials. What does that say about the people in this country? Why would anyone be a fan of a man screaming at you and making senseless gestures? I couln’t even tell you 1/4 of the products he endorses because the instant I see or hear that man I mute the tv and look away. And it’s ignorant for people to go buy a product just because a specific person is endorsing it. Pay a person enough and they’ll endorse dog ****! Would you go buy that just because Billy endorsed it? What the hell does he know anyway?

  35. a darker storm said, “The public will generally buy your product more if your commercials are aesthetically pleasing.”

    How do you know that? Do you assemble and poll focus groups like advertisers do? Grabbing people’s attention is key. Aesthetics don’t make people buy the kind of products Billy Mays promotes.

  36. Billy Mays, Billy Blanks, Vince the sham guy, Richard Simmons…they’re on t.v. for a reason, but I’ll be dam^ed if I know what that reason is. It’s insane really. I remember when the Bowflex commercial started airing on my t.v., on every channel, at least once every commercial break. Get a clue advertisers. The public will generally buy your product more if your commercials are aesthetically pleasing.

  37. There are two people on TV that I would NEVER buy the products their “hawking” and those two would be Billy Mays and his “brother” Vince the Shamwow guy!!! Both of these clowns belong in a carnival on the midway or at a downtown L.A. used car lot! What a couple of JERKS! Anyone who buys their products can’t be too brilliant or are very easily swayed!

  38. Man…, I turn this loud mouth off every time he pops up on my TV. The junk he hawks should be banned from sale, what junk. Now I hear he is going to host some cable show called “The Pitchman”. Holy cow, what moron with bad hearing is going to watch that. I hope that it has a real short future. Heaven help us if this junk survives.

  39. I change the channel and watch a different program when loud mouth Mays comes on, I don’t need someone YELLING at me to try a product. I will not purchase anything he promotes.
    GET HIM OFF THE AIR !!!

  40. We mute Billy Mays every time we hear his screaming start and NEVER buy any product he screams about..

  41. billy sxxxs big time, he fits rite up there with rush bigmonth limblah. never ever will i buy a billy mays product.

  42. my husband laughed at me as i hit the mute button on one of billy’s commercials and i told him “you don’t yell at me, i’ll be damned if that man is gonna come into my house and yell at me!!!!!”

  43. Billy Mays or his handlers apparently think the public enjoys having some North Beach stripper Barker yell at them. Not only does he sell useless crap, but the Networks or cable channels should know that not only will I not buy this junk but I will go so far as to change channels to avoid him. In case they do understand the ramifications of this, that means I will not listen to anything else in that commercial break. Do you get IT!

    As witnessed by the magnitude of the emails already posted, this opinion is not just those that take the time to speak out but everyone I know and everyone they know. He is invading our personal space and should be treated like Telemarketers.

  44. I bought his crap once and got a better screwing than with a $10,000.00 hooker.

    The awesome auger should cause this bearded conman to do 15 to life. Talk about Madoff!!! This man has done a con job on him as well.

  45. Billy Mays is an obnoxious screaming dee dee dee who is jealous of Shamwow and has decided to scream his already too loud moronic head off about it. Guess what Billy? Vince and Shamwow are so much better than you it’s like comparing delicious apples to a dogturd(you). Get over it because you are a has been fool. Popular Mechanics agrees, as they tested both products. The Winner Shamwow.

    So shut your giant pie-hole billy, ya loser.

  46. My family has purchased no less than 7 products pushed by Billy Mays. The result… NONE OF THEM WORK AT ALL NOT EVEN A LITTLE!!!! HOW CAN HE CONTINUE TO SELL CRAP THAT DOES NOT WORK WITHOUT BEING SUED????? HE IS A LIAR! NO BETTER THAN THE WALLSTREET A*%HOLES THAT SCREWED UP THE ECONOMY, OR THE CEOS, OR TELEVANGELISTS! HE IS A FRAUD. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING HE SELLS!!!!!

  47. why can’t we have more elegant and enjoyable commercials like double tree and Marriott produce. I despise Billy Mays and all of the other loud mouthed ads. I have stopped watching Fox because of too much billy and too many other unpleasant ads. by dean

  48. I find it ironic that some morons will complain about how loud Billy Mays is in all capital letters.

  49. if ever i see this man it will be extremely difficult not to SLAP his face!!!!!! he can not sell me anything, as soon as I see him I change the channel, I don’t even know what he’s selling. Thank God fot TIVO, and Thank God he can not invade my internet.

  50. My wife and I both dislike his commercial…for one reason only…..loud and intrusive manner. He mirrors the load and intrusive manner of many people, in all walks of life, these days. His abrasive manner causes me to reduce the TV volume or change the channel for a short while.

    The one thing I fear is that the majority of viewers have been desensitized to “load-mouths” and that no amount of negative feedback, to advertisers, will make a change.

  51. I will not ever buy anything he pitches. What kind of idiot would like a guy who comes into their home uninvited and shouting at the top of his lungs. If you are one of these people please leave your information because I have heard one too many Billy Mays commercials and would like a place to vent afterward. Hey, maybe I can even sell you some of my useless junk while I’m there!

  52. Too funny!
    I guess the ‘nays’ have it — here’s the Google results for the lovers and the haters:

    Results: about 12,700,000 for i love billy mays

    Results: about 15,900,000 for i hate billy mays

    Still, there are a lot of Billy Mays lovers out there…

  53. while cooking supper in the kitchen, i heard billy shouting from the living room. i went to the computer and typed in “i hate billy mays” in the search engine and was soooo gratified to see so many results. when i am in front of the tv and he comes on i either change channel or hit the mute until he is gone. even if he hawked something i wanted i would not buy it simply because of him. i cannot understand why companies keep paying him to scream at people. he has to cost them more than he makes for them.

  54. I sold all of my televisions because of Billy Mays. Now I spend the time that I use to waste watching television, exercising, playing board games or making money.

    Paul

  55. Wow. So much hate mail in so few gigabytes. xD
    Anyway, I don’t hate the guy, he just makes me crack up. He used to annoy me, but I’ve become resilient to the guy’s screaming.
    Anymore, I just start laughing uncontrollably. The guy’s stupid but LMAO funny.
    Could anyone imagine Billy in the circus?! He’d scare everyone away.

  56. I loathe, hate and DETEST this obnoxious, loud-mouthed huckster and wish he would develop permanent laryngitis. He STINKS at what he does. I refuse to purchase ANYTHING endorsed by him, EVER. Maxx Jones in San Diego

  57. People like Billy Mays have soured me on TV. I now watch sporting events with the volume off. If there is a TV series I want to watch I wait until it is available at the library. I guess there are enough morons out there to make Billy a success, after all George W was elected twice. We are headed for tough times because America doesn’t care about education. To those that want to kill him, don’t bother – there are 100 more like him waiting in the wings.

  58. WHAT A PAIN A NECK ARE YOU MR BILLY MAYS,,I JUST GET NUTS WHEN YOU START YELLINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG,,,,SORRY,,1, 2 3 DEEP BREATH,,,I’M OK…

  59. We will NEVER buy a product that supports Billy Mays or any of this kind of approach to sell.He is our reason to use the MUTE button on the remote. What an obnoxious idiot. Why can’t he use enthusiasm instead of yelling? If your product is good enough, it doesn’t need to be yelled into the public.

  60. Apparently I’m not the only one who HATES Billy Mays. That comforting . . . I hate it when he SHOUTS AT THE ME!!!!! I will never buy anything he promotes, I turn the channel off or mute it when I see/hear him on. Tell him to shut the hell up! It’s just not true that any advertising is good advertising, I will NEVER buy products that use annoying ads. They say if it gets your attention that’s good, but it’s not!!! It just tells me who not to buy from. My list is pretty long and getting longer . . .

  61. I am the original “Bernie”. I wish I could report that Billy Mays’ rants have modulated…quite the contrary, they are worse than ever. I find it very interesting that the companies he touts lack the courage to have websites which would allow us to express our annoyance immediately, without the hassle of snail mail.

  62. LOL, Savvy Shopper (aka Billy Mays).

    You’re a hack, you piss off everyone that hears your bellowing, and next time you try to pose as someone else, refrain from kissing your own a** – it’s pretty obvious.

    Come out of the closet and post in caps, it’s what we’re used to from you. With lots of exclamation points.

    It’s a matter of time before the networks price your airtime out of reach with your cheap crap – your annoying rants & rhymes drive viewers off that channel in droves, and that of course is any network’s worst nightmare.

  63. I am not amused at the commericals that B. Mays is the ‘spokesman’ for.

    I feel that his means of advertising is insulting to human intelligence. Therefore I have written, and will continue to write, to the sponsors who use his services. I inform them that I will no longer purchase their product.

    If they continue to use the aforementioned ‘old yeller’ to sell their products, then they have lost me as a potential customer for life.

  64. I’am sure Billy is a nice person like most of us making a living. He is loud, but i do not have to see is commercials , because i have the right not to watch. So give billy a break, he is only human Ed S.

  65. Dean P, I think you need a little education regarding the economics of television if you think that basic cable and satellite could survive without advertising. Why do you think that premium channels cost so much more? And I’ll repeat one more time, although none of you will hear me, is that lots of viewers trust Billy Mays and buy products BECAUSE he is promoting them. Believe it or not, it’s true.

  66. I wonder if the greedy a$$holes that sell the commercial spots realize that people immediatley CHANGE THE CHANNEL when this obnoxious loudmouth comes on? Kind of counter productive, huh? Once again, the people making the big bucks are completely out of touch. Like other people on here, if this jerk peddles it, I will not buy it. EVER. Just on principle. What gets me is if we are already PAYING for cable and/or satellite programming, why are we subjected to additional commercials anyway? Just the man stickin’ it to us again….Greed is destroying this country and no one give a $hit….oops I’m getting off track.
    Billy Mays, I challenge you to a cage match, fistfight, pistols, or any other way I could take out my frustrations on all the moments of my life you made absolutely miserable. Jerk.

  67. There used to be an FCC rule about commercials not being louder than the program. I guess if that rule still stands, it doesn’t apply to this creep. It should. That’s the way to attack the man. Sic the gummint on his ass.

    I, too, find the man almost as obnoxious visually as he is aurally. Like others here, I make use of the “Jump” button on my remote for 30 seconds or so of anything else, up to and including wildebeasts being eaten by lions. I can’t believe that enough people buy the products he sells to make using him worthwhile.

    I won’t buy OxyClean even though it’s a good product; I’ll survive without it somehow. I do like “Orange Glo” for wood floors. I discovered it long before Billy Mays became their spokesperson, and am still working my way through the case of it that I bought years ago on sale at Bed Bath & Beyond. When I run out, too bad for both the makers of Orange Glo and me, unless by then, they’ve unloaded Mays.

    Oh by the way, In the BB&B store, they’ll often have a little TV going, with Mays shouting about something on a loop. I usually reach over as I pass by and turn it off. One time, an employee in the nearest department gave me a long-suffering look and mouthed “Thank you.” If I were ever in her position, I’d insist on being allowed to wear white-noise headphones as an alternative to being placed on ’round-the-shift suicide watch.

    I don’t know about any of the other products he sells in order to avoid buying them because I WON’T WATCH HIS COMMERCIALS. Every now and then, the “Jump” button stays stuck on the channel to which I jumped to get away from him. That might be of interest to the bean counters at whatever network I abandoned in my flight.

  68. I absolutely HATE this guy!! None of the products he pushes even work!! I know people who bought that fix it crap, that’s supposed to fix scratches on your car, and they only got ripped off!! BEWARE OF THIS GUY AND THE CRAP HE’S SELLING!!!! Not only that, but his is SO annoyingly LOUD!! Get a real job you bonehead!!

  69. he should like. go fall in a ditch with flesh eating ants inside.

    ehem. that would be ideal, yes.

  70. He just makes me laugh. And all you guys complain, which is kinda pointless, but obviously he is doing something. Or otherwise he wouldn’t be on TV.

  71. I’m so glad to see that there are others equally disturbed by this man’s obnoxious presentations. As long as he is promoting his own products, I will never buy one of them.

  72. Billy,have you ever thought about getting a voice coach to teach you to lower your voice an octive so I donn’t have to mute you every time you come on.Might be better for the products that hire you to show their products,cause many uf us don’t listen and won’t buy anthing you promote,just cause we hate your voice

  73. Well..I too am turned off by these infomercials…but understand in advertising.
    “BAD BREATH IS BETTER THAN NO BREATH AT ALL”
    The fact we are talking about him is all they care about..like many other info’s.
    I bet he spits when he speaks. I’m sure Billy doesn’t care if we like him…$$$$$talks.

  74. i’m not yelling, but, why is it that billy mays is the ONLY endorser who YELLS?????? i’m all for someone doing well, making money from doing commercials, but~~yelling!? really not necessary, it actually deters me from seeing what product he is endorsing~~i change the station when i either hear his voice or just see him. thank you for letting me vent~~oh, and Lisa on 1/4/09, i will do the same!!

  75. I hate Mays but the Jerk selling Sham Wow! (Who obviously switches carpet pieces after totally soaking one and showing one that was never wet on the bottom) (And, who can’t do this all day, thank G*D) is almost as bad, just almost.

  76. If we all refuse to buy any product that this loudmouth pitches, maybe he will just go away.

  77. I remember when car commercials consisted of SCREAMING. I proceeded to write and call each company that used that technique and told them I wasn’t buying from them. Others must have done the same because I’ve noticed most have toned it down.

    Of course, now, that loud-mouthed, ugly, obnoxious snake-oil salesman is on every channel at all times of the day and night and if something isn’t done, I’m cancelling my cable service. He’s disgusting, nasty, and ruins the airways.

    I do not want to come home after a tough day at work and try to relax watching a great show like NCIS or House only to be constantly assaulted by that creature.

    I am writing to FOX and USA and other networks and hope you all do the same. And for pete’s sake, don’t buy anything he hawks! Thanks!

  78. SOMEBODY, PLEASE GET THIS GUY OFF THE AIR. I change the station as soon as I hear his voce. Who would buy any of the products he screams about

  79. I had to google “I hate billy mays” just to find this website and write along with you others how much I hate Billy Mays. He sucks soooo bad. I would never buy anything from his ads just because he is so annoying. I don’t need somebody yelling at me every 4 minutes during commercials. Information doesn’t need to be made so annoying for me to grasp it. Billy, if you are out there.. PLEASE..PLEASE STOP SHOUTING AT ME…

  80. I hate Billy Mays….I want to bust the TV into a thousand pieces when he comes on it. I’ve never felt this way about anyone else on TV. Please remove him.

  81. Hey Billy Mays…SHUT THE F#@* UP! Anyone who falls for his obnoxious pitch and buys this crap is a moronic hillbilly. Wait, that’s not fair to the hillbillies.

  82. I loathe Billy Mays’s commercials. When we see one, my husband and I both reach for the remote to hit ‘mute’.
    Why don’t those who pay for his services realize that he turns more viewers off, than those who buy their products?
    I won’t buy anything he sells.

  83. This guy is the biggest douche since Massengill.

    The guards should play his commercials to torture the Guantanamo Bay prisoners. Someone should tell butt breath Billy that thing over his head is called a Boom Microphone, which eliminates the need to yell. It has only been invented for over 130 years now.

  84. My wife likes HGTV. I actually was getting into some of these shows, when low and behold, this loudmouth idiot started barking at me during commercial breaks. Honestly, I barely even know what this guy is selling in spite of his hollering. I thought I escaped him by switching back to ESPN and there he was again! Who let this clown on tv?!

  85. Even if you hit the “mute” button when Billy Mays starts shouting at you about one product or another — I wonder if he will ever hawk feminine products? — he is visually annoying. He has a neurotic habit of squeezing his fingers together and jabbing them toward the camera. He punctuates each sentence with a jab, then he pulls his elbows back, and jabs again. Repeatedly. It also looks as if he uses a can of black shoe polish to brush his hair back and his beard. The only course of action one can take is to change the channel all together.

  86. Ok, I’ve gotta be honest..oxy clean is a great product. With that said, every other rag, orange cleaner, miracle putty, gopher, INSURANCE?, and burger mold that this screaming rip off artist pitches is worthless. Can you belive on that burger ad he says ‘you can put ketchup, onions, mustard on them!’ Like before this commercial came along we were all sitting around like cavemen trying to figure out how to dress our hamburgers. Really? We can put them on buns?! Thanks Billy for inspiring a new wave of culinary precision that rivals french cuisine. How can this dirtbag sleep at night?

  87. Billy Mays sucks. Alot Why is he always shouting?!? I want this man to go to prison, for annoying crimes against the people! HEY BILLY MAYS HERE, I JUST WANTED TO LET EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT MY LATEST PRODUCT BILLY MAYS SUCKS, AND ON TOP OF THIS GREAT OFFER I’LL THROW IN THAT OTHER INFOMERCIAL GUY VINCE WITH SHAMWOW! I BET PEOPLE WOULD PAY HARD COLD TO HAVE THESE MORONS DEPORTED!

  88. Billy Mays is an obnoxious loudmouth (as everyone already knows)! I wouldn’t buy anything sold by the companies this guy does ads for. He’s one of the reasons that TV remotes have a “mute” button! But he does have quite a following, there are some idiots out there who actually worship this moran! Go to YouTube & do some searching. Some people!

  89. So I’m on my bed with my netbook watching FOX NEWS and on comes this schmuck Billy Mays who I absolutely despise due to his obnoxious over the air delivery. Why someone would buy the crap he promotes is beyond me. Anytime he comes on I mute the volume. I’d like to use mighty mend-it and apply it to his lips.

  90. Can you imagine if Billy Mays were to sell his crappy, overpriced things in other countries? Imagine if that dummy showed up in China on their TV, they would be holding their ears not knowing what the heck was happening and why this guy is screaming at them, and why the heck does this look like his beard is moving. Does anyone else agree with me? He should try whispering, I am sure that he would sound slightly normal.

  91. BILLY MAYS IS AN OVERMODULATED, OBNOXIOUS EXTREME-AUDIO VOMIT BAG! I STILL REFUSE TO BUY ‘OXY CLEAN’ AND I REFUSE TO BUY ANY PRODUCT HE ENDORSES AT 120 DECIBELS, STUPID ARM AND HAND MOVEMENTS AND THAT HARD-SELL ‘USED CAR SALESMAN’ SMILE. COULD YOU IMAGINE WHAT HE WOULD BE LIKE AS A NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR?! EEEAAAH…PACK UP…WE’RE MOVING NOW! LET’S HOPE HE DOESN’T HAVE ANY CHILDREN. IF SO, IMAGINE WHAT THEY HAVE TO PUT UP WITH IN SCHOOL FROM THE OTHER KIDS MAKING FUN OF THEIR DOOFUS DAD! THE U.S. GOV SHOULD DROP BILLY MAYS FIRST IN THEIR NEXT WAR FOR OIL BEFORE THEY DROP ANY BOMB…ANY ENEMY WOULD GIVE UP IMMEDIATELY! EVERYBODY SHOULD SEND EMAIL BOMBS TO EVERY MANUFACTURER WHO USES HIM AND COMPLAIN ABOUT THAT IRATE SLUG! THANKFULLY TELEVISION MANUFACTURERS CREATED A MUTE BUTTON ON THE REMOTE!

  92. I HATE him. To be perfectly clear…I HATE HIM! If I lived in the same town as him I would picket his house. He and the Sham-Wow guy should both be put into a cage with some hungry lions. I wish we could send him all these posts so he would know how much he is detested…the loud-mouthed, annoying, snake-oil selling pitchman! He should be ashamed of himself for selling the crap he does.

    Arghh! A commercial of his just came on TV…where is my remote…?…?…?

  93. I used to hate the Head-On commercials, that is until I had to listen to Billy Mays. This man makes a living out of being so loud and obnoxious that it makes you feel like you are 8 years old again with your Dad yelling at you and poking you in the chest as his spit sprays you in the face. I would never buy anything Billy Mays endorses because in my book it is negative advertising just like Head-On. God’s judgment be upon Billy Mays and his stupid dyed beard, This man deserves to go in Hell with his own commercials airing over and over again as an eternal punishment. Die Billy, DIE!

  94. Axxel, you are really full of holiday spirit hating so much on Billy. What does it say about you that you are so focused on hating Mr. Mays and have posted your toxic messages multiple times? Don’t you have anything positive going on in your life?

  95. Billy Mays looks like a jerk, sounds like a jerk and any company that uses him as a spokesperson deserves to have their products boycotted. What a slime pitchman…scum marketing by scum companies.

  96. I don’t hate Billy Mays….I just won’t listen to his screaming commercials nor will I pay attention to what he is advertising nor buy what he advertises. He is annoying as hell and disrupts a peaceful day until I can grab the remote.

  97. Billy is a pig and his products deserve to be #### upon-I purposely misplace his products on store shelves and turn them inward

  98. I have never nor will I purchase any crap promoted by this jerk Billy Mays, I can’t stand to listen to him or look at his ugly butt face.

  99. Billy Mays is the most in-demand pitchman on TV today. Many people find him likable and credible, even if you do not. When he endorses a product, it sells. While you haters are ranting, Billy keeps counting his stacks of money.

  100. I WILL NOT purchase products endorsed by this fuzy-faced loudmouth!! I figure if a company hires this idiot, their products must be worthless! I like what Jon G. (on 11/26/08) wrote about fuzzy-face!!
    Moondancer

  101. I had always been a non-violent person who didn’t know what hatred was and I never wished harm to anybody. That is until old #### #### Mays made the scene. I never knew how wonderful hating actually was. When you hate an ###### like Billy Mays you have reached the ultimate. I am thinking of taking up a collection for a hit man to dispose of that piece of ####. First, I have to find out if that would be against the law.

  102. Billy Mayz used to work as a Guard at a Turkish prison camp, After being fired He then joined the Taliban, They were so annoyed with Him that They sent Him to America where They thought He would offend as many Americans as possible and leading Many of them to shave their heads with cheese graters while chewing on aluminum foil! it is a form of terrorism. Next time You see him on Your t.v. set try this… picture him in His Underoos! Rage-On You Crazy Caveman!

  103. Get rid of this loudmouth and the people who are selling the products he pitches. Had to buy a new remote because he wore out my mute button. Comes across as an overbearing huckster. Let him sell Enzyte and replace smiling Bob so we don’t have to turn off the volume during the asinine commercials.

  104. Perhaps Billy could use the “Sham-wow” To sponge up the Verbal manusha spewing out of His big Mouth! What kind of Company would use such a “Dirt-Clod” to Cram their low budget products down the Publics throats? And unfortunatly there are People that don’t find His verbal onslaught obectionable! the same People that say…Extended Warranty! How can I lose!!!Jealous hardly! Disgusted? Absolutly! I would rather listen to the “sock puppet”

  105. I cringe any time a Billy Mays commercial airs. I immediately turn the TV to another channel. I will never watch his commercials or buy anything he endorses. His voice is annoying.

  106. Billy Mays is a professional endorser. He is the “kiss of life” for many quality products. The mere fact that many ad agencies use him to promote their products speaks volumes about his effectiveness to promote said products.

    I fully understand why some people are jealous of his success in these troubled times.

  107. This asshat has been THE most obnoxious snake-oil salesman I’ve had the displeasure of being exposed to in many, many years. Probably the only one who remotely comes close to this level of annoyance is that clown that’s dressed in the question mark suit yelling about free money from the Government.

    I suspect that if the networks knew how many thousands of viewers flee their channel as soon as the awful bellow begins “HI, BILLY MAYS HERE…” they would jack all his commercials rates to the point that the companies selling the cheap crap would be priced out.

    If I even suspect that this ape has endorsed anything I’m thinking of buying, I will go out of my way to support their competitor. I do not like being yelled at and refuse to support him.

  108. Now that Yelling Idiot Billy Mays is selling Insurance on one of them commercials. He does not yell as loudly, but he is still annoying and is the symbol of crappy products.

  109. WHY DOES BILLY MAYS ENDORSE THESE PIECE OF CRAP PRODUCTS I CERTAINLY WOULDNT BUY ANY OF THEM IF HED SHUT THE HELL UP AND SPEAK IN A NORMAL TONE MAYBE HE WOULDNT HAVE TO ENDORSE SO MANY DIFFERENT PRODUCTS. GET A REAL JOB A-HOLE WHERE THE HELL DID HE COME FROM ANYWAY?

  110. Everytime this crack smoking freak comes on, he is 50% louder than whatever we were watching and requires a quick dive for the remote to hit the mute before he blows out the subwoofer. Honestly, he has got to be everything that you DONT do while preforming in a commercial. He screams, the veins in his forehead are about to pop and like I said- even though he is loud already, his commercials seem to be recorded at a greatly increased volume level than other commercials or programming. This guy is on too much and is unpleasant and disagreeable to listen to. Have you seen his add for the “Steam Buddy”? This thing doesnt even work during the demonstration on the add, AS IF!!!
