Be hilarious! Go as Billy Mays on Halloween


Freshly deceased celebrities are always a big hit on Halloween. There's no shortage of them this year, but for any self-respecting advertising person, the choice is clear: You must go as Billy Mays, the infomercial king who died in June. It's a ridiculously easy costume to pull together, and the louder you get as the night goes on, the more realistic you will appear. The weird thing, however, is that Mays's son, also named Billy, who is honoring his father's memory on the Web site Where's Billy Mays?, is embracing the idea of Billy Mays Halloween costumes—and has even announced a Billy Mays "Hallow-clean Contest." God bless him. Here are the rules:
  1. Send a photo of your costume to along with your contact info.
  2. Be tasteful. (Zombies ARE permitted)
  3. Project your voice.
  4. Have fun.
  The deadline for entries is Nov. 4. Via Consumerist.
