I remember reading a story about Microsoft paying Billy Mays millions to do ads for them. I wonder if they were ever recorded because if they were we have not seen the last of Billy Mays. Hopefully they were! If they were recorded what Microsoft product would you want the ads to be about? I bet it is about Windows Vista like most Microsoft ads out there.


Let Billy Mays rest in peace.

i still can't wrap my head around that i mean what would these adds be like? just him holding it showing you stuff?

It better be Windows 7 and not Vista! Putting Billy Mays in an ad immediately makes it sell fifteen times the normal quantity.

"BILLY MAYS HERE FOR PROJECT NATAL.  IT'S GREAT FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY.  YOU'LL BE FLIPPING AND FLOPPING, AND TWISTING AND BOBBING.  CALL RIGHT NOW AND RECEIVE NATAL IN EARLY 2010".

RIP Billy, you were the greatest spokesman ever.

You were also kind of a dick, if the documentary show is to be believed.

Wait, what!?!! Link!?!!

P.S. He was to be the Taco Bell spokesman soon. Those ads would have been epic.

Billie Mays is kind of a celebrity.
It would be weird to see him in ads after his death.

I don't know about Microsoft, but the day or so prior to his death, I'm pretty sure he was confirmed to do ads for Taco Bell.

He wasn't. He screwed around with Sully a bit, but that was just because they were friends, not because he was a dick. Sully was his best friend. No one was more shaken up over Billy's loss than he was. Would he have acted like that if Billy was actually a dick? No. So calm down, and let the guy rest in peace.
