Anthony Sullivan can be seen alongside the late Billy Mays in the show Pitchmen, where the two men compete to see who will be given the gig of pitching various new products. Mays was found dead today, in a week that can only be described as profoundly tragic.

To add to the tragic nature of his death, his son used twitter to announce that his father was dead, writing “My dad didn’t wake up this morning.”

    SallySweet Says:

    Have you ever even seen more than five minutes of Pitchmen? Sullivan and Mays were more like business partners, deciding which products they would pitch. Every now and then they’d compete with each other, but Sullivan produced a lot of Mays’ commercials. And you didn’t do more than attribute that Twitter post to “Billy Mays’ son” who’s name is Billy Mays III. Wow, I hope you’re not a real journalist.

    It is sad that Billy Mays died, and I can sympathize with those who knew him. I feel bad because I used to laugh at his camera presence on the commercials he pitched for cleaning products–he seemed loud and overpassionate–but I could tell that he loved what he did.
