Antoine Dodson features on a bona fide hit single, and all it took was for his sister Kelly to be assaulted—and two knuckleheads known as the Gregory Brothers to remix his news soundbites—to happen. Yes, viral video fans—”Bed Intruder Song,” which has been available on iTunes for two weeks now, debuted on the new Billboard Hot 100 chart published today. But the magic doesn’t end there!

First, in the event that you’ve been away from a computer for the past month, here’s “Bed Intruder Song”:

And here’s the original news broadcast about “the Huntsville rapist” that spawned this charming smash:

“Bed Intruder Song” enters the Hot 100 this week at #89. But, really—this will surely be #1 before summer ends, no?

Well, even if that doesn’t happen, Kelly Dodson’s brother can still smile knowing his 15 minutes are that much sweeter now that there’s an Antoine Dodson doll available on eBay. And the starting bid is a mere $50—a steal if we ever saw one, home-home-homeboy.
