Hide Yo Kids, Hide Yo Wife...

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'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.
