Call me ignorant but one of my fave videos out right now is one featuring Antoine Dodson.
Dodson has become an Internet superstar after passionately sharing his opinions in a news report about someone who allegedly attacked his sister, Kelly earlier this month in Huntsville, Alabama.
Here's the original news report:
People called the station and complained about Dodson. I'm not one to judge (but I did silently question the hidden agenda) but soon after (the Internets are mad quick!!!) the news report was broadcast, this viral video blew up:
Don't even front. This. Is. The. Jam!! The beat. The hook...it's genius!!! LOL.
And that viral video has since spawned many other covers. Even North Carolina A&T's marching band plans to perform the song during a performance:
And now, according to The New York Times, Dodson is using proceeds from the song to move his family out of the projects.
And I recently heard on the Tom Joyner Morning Show that he was fishing for a record deal and is supposed to be working with comedian Mike Epps on a project.
I'm glad that some good has come out of an originally negative situation.
O, and no word yet on the alleged attacker.
