Bed Intruder Song NFT Sale
Antoine Dodson was interviewed for a local news station, and he said “hide yo kids, hide yo wife” after a criminal, titled ‘Bed Intruder’ was caught for an attack in Madison County, Alabama, which saw a man in Kelly Dodson’s bed. This became a meme and has been used in videos since its release in the early 2010s. After the original meme, a song was created titled ‘Bed Intruder Song’. This song was released on August 6th, 2010 and was written by Antoine Dodson and The Gregory Brothers. The original music video went mega-viral, becoming YouTube’s most popular video of 2010. Now, the view count sits at over 151 million views.
