Dizzam. I know most of you have seen the video called “Bed Intruder” that has racked up a total of 33 million views and counting. The first time I saw that video I didn’t quite understand what was happening, but when I saw the original news clip first, I DIED. The brilliant The Gregory Brothers have re-invented a way of producing hit songs, with real news stories (both strange and controversial) called “Auto-Tune the News.” It’s seriously genius.
After they released “Bed Intruder,” the You Tube response was so quick and so huge that after putting it on iTunes, Antoine Dodson, the “singer” and real-life Linkin Park resident made enough money to get his family out of the projects and buy a house. It’s a true life fairy tale for that guy and I think it’s just great. Not to mention freakin’ hilarious.
So you can imagine how hard I laughed when a friend sent me this video of Antoine Dodson and Michael Gregory of the Gregory Brothers performing “Bed Intruder” on the October 13th BET Hip Hop Awards…SO GOOD!!
