Why I Made This
I'm a fan of Billy Mays and really enjoyed getting to see behind the scenes in he and Sully's hit TV show Pitchmen on Discovery. He just seems like a good guy who really enjoys life and lives it to its fullest. His passing at the young age of 50 was a bit of a shock. This Billy Mays Caps Lock app lets you hear a little bit of Billy anytime you want and is sure to make you smile.
