As previously reported, Dodson, a Huntsville, Alabama native, became a viral superstar when he went on an emotional rant on a local newscast after an intruder broke into his house and tried to rape his sister. His impassioned, melodic ranting caught the attention of amateur music makers, who synchronized it with an autotune melody and uploaded it to YouTube, calling it the Bed Intruder Song.

The song was subsequently made available via iTunes, one of many merchandising opportunities Dodson's cashed in on during his 15 minutes of fame.

"It changed my life, now I can take care of my family the way I want to," Dodson said in a clip that aired on the program.
