He was “surrounded by family,” per TMZ. Popeil’s family and team have yet to publicly comment or confirm the news as of this writing.
Popeil essentially invented the popular image of the American television pitchman, whose novel products solved frustrating problems viewers didn’t know they had. He popularized much of the vernacular of late-night TV ads and infomercials, with lines like “Now how much would you pay?” and “Set it and forget it.”
