Billy Mays, the greatest pitchman since Ron Popeil, was found dead Saturday at his home in Tampa. Mays was 50, the same age as Michael Jackson, but I’ve got to say his death much more saddening.

Mays wasn’t a pop culture icon, though his beard was inspiring, but his death, likely of heart failure, was a lot less expected than the King of Pop’s.

Mays was best-known for promoting OxiClean, but I always imagined he would have been an amazing street preacher.
