We’ll Never See Billy Mays’s Masterpiece

By now you’ve heard that Billy Mays (last spotted pushing OxiClean at the Big Apple Barbecue) has actualized one of his sayings, “life’s a pitch and then you die.” Thanks to YouTube, we’ll always have the Billy Mays gangsta remix, the Vince Offer–Billy Mays mash-up, Mays threatening to “sham-pow” his nemesis, and countless other clips. But sadly, we’ll never see his would-be masterpiece, the Taco Bell ad that a Fox News report says was in the works. To give you an idea of what might have been, enjoy the man working his magic at a McDonald’s drive-through.

Update: An exact cause of death has yet to be determined, but an autopsy has revealed that Mays suffered from hypertensive heart disease. [LA Times]
