Funny and Only in America: Brother saved SISTER from RAPIST who broke into her BED ROOM and threatened him on the evening news, those threats are now The "Bed Intruder Song" that made it's debut at #

Back in July the story of h*** thug Antoine Dodson made headlines. An Alabama man who saved his sister from an attack by an intruder, then hilariously threatened the would-be rapist on the evening news.

Now Antoine is getting the last laugh, as a song spoofing his threats has gone viral and is charting on the Billboard Hot 100.

The "Bed Intruder Song" made it's debut at # 89 on the Hot 100. It also debuts on Hot Digital Songs at No. 49 with 30,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Antoine and his sister, Kelly Dodson, who was attacked get 50% of the song's profits.

The Gregory Brothers from youtube's AutotuneTheNews are responsible for making the spoof. Evan Gregory spoke to Billboard about the song's unlikely success.

"Why I think people are latching onto it is frankly quite similar to why they latch onto a classic ballad or pop song that tops the charts -- because there's real emotion behind it that people identify with, even if, in this case, it was for unusual reasons," he said

Congrats to Antoine and his sister for turning what could have been a family disaster into a money making venture.

OMG! Those suburban white boys produced the heck out of that youtube news footage! Judging but thier clapping, they got a bit of rhythm too!

This just goes to show you that; if any so-called-artist use ATUOTUNES, they can sound like they can sing, when they really can't (T-Pain...*cough/*cough).

Yes, this was a terrible incident but look at what came out of it! (I'm just wondering if they caught the perp.)

This is one of my favorite youtube's freakin' hilarious! It never gets old! LMAO!

Turning a negative into a positive and making a stand. This demonstrates what the love for his sister and making a stand for her as a Black man should for his family no matter who the sick individual is. Imagine if the likes of p. diddy, 50 cent and gunitand jay z with their hundreds of millions and star power could do if their message and creativity was really put to use to uplift the black community, the affects on young black children and adults would be profound. This young man is a real hero, maximum respect in every aspect

Wow!!! This is what you call creative minds at work. Very impressive. However, that was a vicious act committed.
