    Did anyone see any more Billy Mays commercials after the tragedy? What about Vince Offer, ever since his trial?

    Yes, I've seen several in the last couple of days. It gave me pause as I reached to FF through it.

    I know he seemed to rub a lot of people the wrong way, but I really liked his commercials. It actually took about 3-4 years of watching him to realize he was shouting.

    I'll miss you, Billy.

    yeah, clearly the Sham Wow guy is much much much better.

    I liked him, he did his job, he did it well. OxiClean would not be where it was w/o him. Pitchmen the show was one of my favorite new shows this year.

    I liked him, but I hate the commercials (though I do use OxyClean). And I watched a few episodes of Pitchmen and liked it.

    To be fair, though, I FF through 99.8% of commercials. I adore my TiVo.

    Is OxyClean really as good as advertised?

    The website still uses him as the main basis to sell the product. His commercials are on television for this item too.

    My Mom swears by it. That's all that I can say.

    But anyways, I've only seen one of his commercials since he passed.

    Vince offer was never tried for punching that hooker that bit his lip the charges were dropped.

    Oxy clean doesn't work worth a ****. (never believe everything you see on tv or the internet) I do own a Slap Chop and it is convenient (cuts down on mincing time) but not as easily cleanable as Vince suggests

    And as far as I know I haven't seen any new spots, but I did see the season finale of pitchmen (that's "season" not series which means hopefully it will be back on)

    Yeah, lots of people thought his yelling came across as obnoxious or even ridiculous. I didn't see it that way.

    Nothing works as well as advertised, but it works pretty well. I've been using it for over ten years now.

    And I did find his yelling over the top.

    I heard they're not going to stop using them, unless the networks just decide not to air them.

    Well, I don't remember when the commercials started, but I first saw it at the Ohio State Fair. I saw a demonstration, bought some, and been using it ever since. I've only been to that fair once, and it was in '98. :)

    I saw his Simoniz bit yesterday, which made me happy to see he's still being aired, but other than that nothing to speak of.

    I really want Pitchmen to return, even if it's only Anthony Sullivan himself. The show is really well done, and it allows for a perspective of the industry you wouldn't normally see. I know it personally gave me a much greater respect for pitchmen like Billy Mays and Anthony Sullivan!

    I saw the Dual Saw commercial. I think it was on the History Channel a few nights ago.
