Commercials Creep me Out

#1
i saw a Billy Mays commercial for Jupiter today, man that made my hair stand up on my arms because well, He's a dead guy! I'm sure other dead people pitched commercials, seems to me the grape nuts guy maybe? I dunno. Anyone remember a dead person that hawked stuff from the grave? Do you think it is right for the commercial owners to do this?

Hardly, he died just recently and he should be given some time off the screen for a while. It's quite disrespectful to use the dead to sell.

Now that I think about it, it would be a bit of a laugh if they had his ghost selling things. That would be in really bad taste, but it would still be a bit of a laugh.

I remember when Jim Varney (From the Ernest movies) died they had a car dealer locally here who used him and his Ernest P. Worrell character to pitch promos for their vehicles, and when he died they no longer had him, so they made a CGI animated 'ghost' of him to do it. haven't seen those though recently.
