NEW YORK (AP) - Billy Mays will live on TV. A new commercial for Mighty Tape will start running July 20. In the new spot Mays says "Just stretch, wrap and it fuses fast" as he demonstrates the tape on a kitchen drain pipe. Moments later, he's seen, still wearing his signature sport shirt and khaki slacks but with scuba gear, as he repairs a hole in another diver's air hose underwater using Mighty Tape. A spokesman for a sales and marketing company says their "feeling is, everyone wants to have Billy go on." Mays' advertising for other products in the Mighty brand line returned to the air earlier this week. The commercials were pulled after Mays died June 28 of an apparent heart attack.
