OriginEdit

William Darrell "Billy" Mays, Jr. was an American spokesperson and promoter for many items on the Home Shopping Network. Known for his exuberant personality and endless energy, Mays was known as "the Lord of the Pitch", and contributed to millions of HSN sales.

UsageEdit

Viewers trusted Billy Mays to such an extent that some of the items he sold became empowered by the placebo effect. The placebo effect is the phenomenon where a person believes that a medicine, or in this case product, will work, therefore it is seen as effective.

Every product on the Billy Mays shelf works perfectly, exactly as advertised on television. Such products include: Oxiclean, Orange Glo, Awesome Auger, DualSaw, Flies Away, Hercules Hook, Impact Gel, Mighty Mendit, Mighty Putty, What-Odor?® Odor Eliminator, Mighty Tape, and more.

CollectionEdit

The collection of these artifacts has varied in difficulty. Some were found through long investigation and sleuthing, while others were simply ordered over the phone. This section of the Housewares Aisle is frequently visited during spring cleaning.
