So why is this commercial particularly vile? It caters to the worst aspects of human nature. We have this vane and superficial James Dean knock off who probably hasn't ever been with a woman in his life tell us how he got a 'girl like this' who probably is a raging bitch and dropped out of high school, but hey look at her...she is hot! Woohoo!
I pretty much hate all commercials, but I do sort of miss Billy Mays. There will never be a better TV salesman. He didn't need any cheap tricks or distractions or comedy. His tone of voice and persuasion skills were all that were needed to sell oxyclean to the world.
The medical examiner "concluded that coc aine use caused or contributed to the development of his heart disease, and thereby contributed to his death," the office said in a press release. The office said Mays last used coc aine in the few days before his death but was not under the influence of the drug when he died. Hillsborough County spokeswoman Lori Hudson said nothing in the toxicology report indicated the frequency of Mays' coc aine use. Cocaine can raise the arterial blood pressure, directly cause thickening of the left wall of the ventricle, and accelerate the formation of atherosclerosis in the coronary arteries, the release said. However, in October 2009, the results of a second medical examination, commissioned by Mays' family, concluded that "coc aine was not a significant contributing factor" to his death. According to subsequent news reports the toxicology tests also showed levels of painkillers hydrocodone, oxycodone, and tramadol, as well as anti-anxiety drugs alprazolam and diazepam. Mays had suffered from hip problems and was scheduled for hip replacement surgery the day after he was found dead.
