75 Viral Product Pushers

Commercials That Aim to Sell Like Billy Mays Did

— June 29, 2009 — Pop Culture
Billy Mays could sell gravity to the moon if he had been given enough time (which for him is about 35 seconds).

The passing of Billy Mays has inspired this arrangement of valiant attempts to sell products or ideas to a consumer.

Billy Mays was a master of his craft and if I could sell a product the way he could, I’d be much better off because of it. From interesting toilet tools to car commercials with no cars, enjoy these 75 product pushers.
