Billy MayesObnoxious

There are a LOT of revolting commercials on TV, but the absolute most totally obnoxious commercials are by that loud mouth billy Mayes. There is not one single product that he shouts about that we will ever purchase, at any price, no matter what it is.

    I have to add my complaint about Billy Mayes as well. It seems that He just does not tout one product but a whole slew of them.

    He is loud and very obnoxious. I understand this is how he makes his living but, does he need to shout about them. It really does fray a persons nerves. Isnt there any way to get him from shouting?

    A lot of the perceieved loudness is due to audio compression, which is done on all commercials...his to a greater extent.

    This type of ad is an invasion of my private residence. If someone came to my door and shouted like Billy Mayes, I would smack him upside the head with a 2x4. The FCC is partially to blame because they allow ads like this to be perpetrated on the American public. Some one should get and distribute Billy's home phone number so everyone can call and scream at him.

    I completely agree with all the other complaints on Billy Mayes and his loud mouth. I wouldn't mind it so much because I mute him anyway, but when he begins his stupid commercials by screaming, I nearly jump out of my skin. Someone please shut this man up!!! I can't take it anymore.

    Listen up advertisers. It seems that many people agree that this man is aggitating. Do you actually think we will even pay attention to your product? I, like many, mute him as soon as I hear him, so your dollars are wasted and a potentially good product is left in the silence.

    When Billy comes on my TV I automatically hit mute or OFF. This type of advertising should be banned.

    He makes my blood preassure rise everytime his loud mouth blurts out garbage on my tv. I haven't met anyone yet that can tolerate his voice. I automatically assume that every product that he advertises is cheap dollar store junk because that's all he's ever represented. What the hell are these companies thinking when they hire him. Are they deaf!?
    MUTE doesn't work fast enough!

    Ditto: I can't stand the guy. I hit mute button. Maybe if we get enough people to call the number they might take him off. The ties up the lines and nothing gets sold. What do you think?

    Is there any chance you can tape this mans mouth shut. He's loud, obnoxious, and is a false advertizer. The same thing applies to the Shamwow Jerk! I will NEVER buy anything more from your advertisments! Everything you folks advertise is false and missleading! BS, BS for you people take advantage of those less informed.

    I personally can't stand the very sound of this screaming idiot. If I could put his testicals in a vice, I'd give him something to scream about. Anyone that employs this idiot, I avoid their products just to make sure I don't contribute to his welfare. If i knew his home phone number I'd call him at my expense just to screamin his ear!!

    I disagree. Even if Billy Mays hurts your ears, this is no way to react. You shouldn't hate someone just because he's making a living. He's unique, and he came up with his own way to sell roducts. It's his trademark, and a lot of people that I know like his commercials. I haven't met anyone that hates his commercials. And, it's not his fault if the products end up at a dollar store. He doesn't scram THAT loud. He just gets your attention. He's a good salesman, not an obnoxious ###.

    Maybe it would get him off the air if we complained to the TV stations that run the commercials. Personally, I flip to a different channel if it wasn't already on DVR - then I just skip over it anyway.

    I knew I wasn't the only person that found this man annoying and obnoxious! I also grab my remote and push the mute button whenever he comes on. Unfortunately, I can't mute him fast enough. I have totally boycotted any product he sells. I don't wish death on him, I just wish he would get off the air forever.

    Get off the air, Billy

    I saw the advertising on TV about ordering a kit or tube that takes stratch out of your car, guaranteed.
    After I ordered the product, it would not allowed me to complete the order. I had to listened to 15 or 20 other product they was trying to sell me. I was on the phone for at least 15 minutes. What a shame, Billy Mayes need to have them stop pain, listening to 12 or 20 other products. Please Billy, stop the pain. So when you ordered, if that the product I want let me have it, don't take me through the pain. If you are a real and honest person, you'll stop it.
    Thank You, 1SG McDowell

    You people are just frackin silly. If you think he is to loud then just turn down the volumn. How hard is that? The man has more personality in his little toe than most people have in there intire body. Have you seen the show Pitchmen on A&E? With Billy and Sullivan? GREAT show. Watch it and you will learn not to judge him by his voice. He and Sully are so funny.
