Antoine Dodson is an American hairstylist who saved his sister from from a man who tried to rape her. On July 28, 2010, Dodson was staying with one of his sisters, Kelly Dodson, in Huntsville, Alabama, while attending school for hair design. As they slept in her home, an intruder climbed in her window, crawled into bed with her, and tried to sexually assault her. Antoine heard the scuffle in the other room, and prevented the rape. Antoine was later interviewed by local old media station WAFF-48. After the television station shared the video on YouTube, the video went viral. The Gregory Brothers turned this video into The Bed Intruder Song, which was popular on iTunes. This netted enough money to move both Dodsons out of the projects. The interview is known for Antoine's flamboyant delivery, and such lines as:
—Elizabeth Gentle, responding to critcs
The meme originated from a television interview done by Huntsville, Alabama television station WAFF-48. It was shared by the station on their YouTube channel, where the video went viral. The interview was later fashioned into a song by The Gregory Brothers.
