Viral video star Antoine Dodson buys a house with the 'Bed Intruder' song money

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

He became huge this summer after he chased a would-be rapist out of his sister's bedroom. He became even huger after the Gregory Brothers turned his speech into an auto-tune song and posted it on iTunes for sale, promising him half of the earnings. Here's the song, in case you've missed it:

He and his family are gonna live in a rapist-free neighborhood from now.

He spoke to UsMagazine:
"We found a house!" he tells Us, adding that he is so "excited ... It's for my whole family. And these are new houses that have just been built."

Dodson is paying for the new pad thanks to money he earned after musicians the Gregory Brothers turned his tirade into an Auto-Tuned song that hit the top 50 iTunes list (Dodson got half the proceeds).

"I still can't believe this," he tells Us of his sudden fame. "Even though my life is moving forward, it's at a standstill in my mind. I'm like, 'Wow! All of this is happening just off a news interview!'"

He's an awesome and lovable guy and I love this worked out for him and his family. Not only was he a hero, but a good sport too!

Kudos to the guys that wrote it and to itunes for making it work!
