Dodson was interviewed on July 28, 2010, by NBC affiliate WAFF-48 News after the alleged attempted rape of his sister by an intruder in her bedroom, in the « projects » of Lincoln Park. Video is below, go directly to 1′ to see Antoine in action :

Then, this video started to get viral. And after watching it, you can easyly understand why : Antoine Dodson knows how to speak real and strong with rythm and looking directly in the eye of the camera.

Then, the Gregory Brothers saw this video. And they decided to make a song using a software (this software is called autotune that translate the words into a tune). Evan Gregory then proceeds to play a heartfelt cover of the resulting song. Here it is, it’s called the « Bed Intruder Song » :

In September 2010, the Gregory Brothers reported that they had sold over 100,000 copies of The Bed Intruder Song on iTunes.

And here the mème started to live a life of its own.

We now have an Antoine Dodson (Dogson ?)


Then, there was the Antoine Dodson tatoo :


The Bed Intruder Costume :


Antoine Dodson T-Shirts

And this is about all you need to know about this gentleman, named Antoine Dodson. Live long and prosper.

he’s climbin in your windows
he’s snatchin your people up
tryna rape em so y’all need to
hide your kids, hide your wife
hide your kids, hide your wife
hide your kids, hide your wife
and hide your husband
cuz they’re rapin errbody out here
you don’t have to come and confess
we’re lookin for you
we gon find you
we gon find you
so you can run and tell that,
run and tell that
run and tell that, homeboy
home, home, homeboy

we got your t-shirt
you done left fingerprints and all
you are so dumb
you are really dumb–for real
the man got away leaving behind evidence
i was attacked by some idiot in the projects
so dumb, so dumb, so dumb, so
