Only In America

..can a guy like Kevin Antoine Dodson score instant fame.

  If you don't know who the cat is, he's famous for an over-the-top interview he gave after fending off a would-be rapist of his sister.

  Because people somehow find this incident funny, there have been remixes and viral videos of this guy- not because of his heroic deed, but because folks want to make fun of him. All-in-all Antoine Dodson videos have garnered around 100 MILLION views on Youtube.

  Now, Mr. Dodson has decided that he's going to enjoy some of the spoils instead of being pissed off and use them to pay off his student loans. He also hopes to raise money to move his loved ones out of the projects and raise money for diabetes research, since the disease afflicts several of his relatives. And now you can look like him. I shit you not. Look at this very real commercial and try not to laugh.

  It's pretty easy to make fun of Antoine Dodson, but I'm not going to. He's a really good guy who is using his 15 minutes to do good things, to make a better life for his family. He's not parading around like an asshole, he's just found an unusual way to obtain a piece of the American dream. Now somebody put this kid on Mad TV because he's funny as fuck.
