i don’t watch a lot of TV. Mostly because i have daughters and cannot endure the excruciating embarrassment of having to watch endless ads for erectile dysfunction drugs. Plus i simply don’t have a lot of time so i tend to watch what i perceive to be quality shows via video- on-demand. But over the holidays i had the opportunity to watch a lot of TV. and one thing struck me loud and clear: billy mays now owns cable TV.
for the benefit of our foreign reader, billy mays is an aggressive pitchman who tends to shill for products that are directly marketed and not available in stores. he has been doing this for years but lately he seems to have become an unstoppable force of nature. he is everywhere. he has even spawned an imitator. i’m not quite sure i see his appeal. but apparently he has magical powers. behold just some of his recent efforts.
