Billy Mays, best known for pitching late night TV products (we’ve all fallen asleep to his shows at one point or another) passed away in his Tampa home yesterday. Its being said he wasn’t wearing his seatbelt on a flight landing, hurt his head, and died later. Strangeness. RIP bro. More from TMZ.
After the flight, Billy told FOX 13 in Tampa that something struck him in the head — here’s Billy’s actual quote:
“All of a sudden as we hit you know it was just the hardest hit, all the things from the ceiling started dropping. It hit me on the head, but I got a hard head.”
We called the FAA for comment, and a spokesperson told us, “The passenger needs to wear a seat belt during landing and he didn’t.”
