'Hide yo kids, hide yo wife' guy wants to get real

NEED TO KNOW
  • Antoine Dodson became famous for autotuned version of local news report about a break-in at his sister's house
  • Viral star is turning to Kickstarter to find backers for possible reality show

To wrap up "Hey, I know you" week on Morning Express with Robin Meade, we caught up with the man who gave us the catchphrase: 'Hide yo kids! Hide yo wife!'

The "Bed Intruder Song" featuring Antoine Dodson's remixed and autotuned warning was produced by the YouTubers known as Schmoyoho. It was a huge viral smash when it first came out in 2010. The video now has over 119 million views and has made Dodson "Internet-famous."

Dodson says the clip has changed his life. Now he wants to take it to the next level so he's launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a reality TV show called the Antoine Dodson Experience:

"...witness him watch the birth of his baby, repair his relationship with his baby-mama, move on from his latest ex-girlfriend (who also happens to be his brothers ex-girlfriend), explore his sexuality, attempt to reconcile with his estranged family and figure out how to move his mom and siblings from the projects to a better and safer life..."
