A young man's outrage at a crime against his sister has made its way from the local news, around the internet and onto the pop charts. The "Bed Intruder Song" started with a news report about an attempted rape in Huntsville, Ala.
Kenyatta Cheese tracks internet memes at Know Your Meme. Watching the video, he says, "The reporter's very very straight-laced. You can tell she's just doing her job." Kelly Dodson was asleep with her little girl inside their apartment when, she says, "I was attacked by some idiot."
The camera pans around the apartment -- there's broken glass, the bed is stripped. It's a pretty grim scene. Then, something totally unexpected happens.
Dodson's brother Antoine Dodson pops out of the screen. You can't take your eyes off him. He doesn't seem like a victim of a crime, he seems like an improbable star of a show. He waves his finger in the camera's face.
"He's climbing in your windows, he's snatching your people up trying to rape them," he says. "So you need to hide your kids, hide your wife, hide your husband because they raping everybody out here."
