Run Tell That, Homeboy!

I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of this new show! I can hardly wait to see what the theme song is going to be! If it is anything like the Bed Intruder song, it is going to be amazing!

If you have lived under a rock for the past year and don't know what I am talking about, just go to youtube.com and search for "Antoine Dodson." He is the internet sensation that became such after he was interviewed by a news reporter following an incident wherein an "idiot from the projects" broke into his apartment (which also happened to be in the projects) and tried to rape his sister. He rose to reality stardom after the Gregory Brothers had some fun auto-tuning his voice and making a fun song out of his interview. It went viral on youtube and the rest is history.

Some don't get what all the fuss is about since he didn't actually have anything to do with the making of the Bed Intruder song. I say, if it wasn't for his larger-than-life personality, there would have been no content for such a song to even be created. So, with all the success of the Bed Intruder song on itunes and youtube.com, he deserves a piece of the pie. Why should the Gregory Brothers reap all the benefits when he is the real star? I am proud of him for working hard and promoting himself as he has. He was able to move his whole family out of the projects and into a nice house. Ain't no shame in his game!

Wow, I have put way too much thought into this.

Anyway, best of luck to Antoine in all his future endeavors! I just might dress up as
my hero for Halloween this year.
