Billy Mays tops list of brand-spokesman costumes for Halloween

Posted on Thu Oct 29 2009


Other than selling us a bunch of crap, infomercial king Billy Mays left an indelible impression on some us. So much so that he was voted the brand spokesman most likely to win a costume contest this year. The Geico caveman was second, and the Geico gecko was third, according to a poll from First Call, Octagon's celebrity and acquisition division. (As AdFreak mentioned earlier, Billy Mays's son will support you if you want to go as his dad. He even wants pictures.) Kayne West was voted the celebrity whose mistake could make him a popular costume this year. (One would assume a Taylor Swift would have to be in tow.) Second and third in that category were Michael Jackson and Jon and Kate Gosselin (in Jackson's case, that's a weird use of the word "mistake"). For the kids, Hannah Montana was voted the licensed character that will most likely be popular this year. Dora the Explorer and characters from Where the Wild Things Are were a distant second and third. Personally, I'm expecting a healthy dose of Balloon Boys and Bernie Madoffs. If you can think of any other good celebrity costumes, feel free to chime in.
