So a few celebs died this week. So what? Is there some cosmic significance? I doubt it.
As to Billy...
I'm sorry to hear of his death, but glad that I will not have to put up with his shouting any longer. I would have listened to his infomercials more if he could have just toned down his voice. It was so irritating that I just flipped past any channel that was broadcasting him. Granted, he seemed to push good products. But his method of shouting everything just left me cold to anything he was promoting.
Adverts do work, but not always in the intended way. Much like the Burger King ads. I refuse to buy from Burger King, for myself or my family - not because I (we) don't like the food, but because of their advertisements.
