Antoine Dodson’s Rise To Fame


As a follow-up to my last post regarding the enthralling evening news interview that skyrocked Antoine Dodson into fame, I’ve decided to share this gem of a clip.  Katie Couric decided to check in with Antoine to see what had changed since achieving viral success via YouTube & The Gregory Brothers.   Give it a watch…and I must say, it couldn’t have happened to a nicer woman.  Enjoy your 15 minutes Antoine…you go girl.

I intend to do my own follow up to see if his/her music career and hair salon become a success.   Meanwhile I’m going to go back to my apartment and collective 5,600 YouTube hits, and dream about the better days ahead.  I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it…people like me.

Evening News Fishing For Content


Almost 28,000,000 views and climbing, the Bed Intruder Song video on YouTube has become a pretty huge success.   I’m not here to talk about the song…but rather the actual newscast.  I’m not including the newscast for obvious reasons…it’s news and it’s boring.

Here’s the video…which will herein be referred to as Exhibit A:

Okay now who put these people on TV?  Really???  Really?????  I get that they are the victims, but couldn’t they just write a statement and let someone else edit/read it?  It’s not so much that these people are idiots, but that the news station let it go on the air like that.  I know when I turn on the news, I love to hear a good “run and tell that” story from time to time.   All I’m saying is that news networks need to take a “best of” from all of these interviews and use that footage.  This includes redneck alien sightings, trailer floodings, NASCAR riots, and the Ghetto Leprechaun.  Maybe I should include that video too.  I think I will.

This is Exhibit B.

Pretty sure I’ve made my point…whatever the point was.   Just use discretion Evening News people.  I know you need to fill up time but lets just play by the “quality not quantity” rule and stick to the good stuff.
