Celebritology Giftology Day 3: Meme-y Christmas from Antoine Dodson

By Liz Kelly

Here's the third in our 12 Days of Celebritology Giftology series, a dozen posts designed to help you cross the celebrity- and pop-culture-obsessed pals off your holiday gift-giving lists. Think of these posts as our gift to you. We're just that generous.

Today's mission: To find the perfect gift for the Antoine Dodson lover in your life. And, trust me, you know one.

For the uninitiated (and I'm guessing at least a few of you still exist), Dodson is the star of the "Bed Intruder" YouTube videos -- what started out as an interview on a local TV newscast morphed into the song below and made Antoine Dodson a star. He's currently got 319,402 Facebook fans (which is 260,645 more than poor reality TV fail David Hasselhoff).

That's right. Hide your kids, hide your wife because the "Bed Intruder" videos were the most-watched items on YouTube in 2010 with a combined total of 61 million pageviews. The song is available for download on iTunes, but surely we can do better to fully equip the Antoine Dodson aficionado in your life.

Really, this is a one-stop-shopping. Just point your browser to the official Antoine Dodson online store for one or more of the following Dodson-related products. Snap 'em up now. One day, they may even fetch as much as that box of mint-condition Beanie Babies you've got stashed in the attic.

Hide this from your kids and your wife if you don't want them to see it before Christmas. Or, get completely into the Dodson spirit by decorating your entire tree using only Antoine ornaments:

Truer words were never spoken (by Antoine Dodson):

This item -- the "Run and Tell That" hoodie -- has got more longevity since it isn't Christmas-themed and your Dodson-loving pal can wear it out in public (note: You may want to wear your "I"m with stupid" t-shirt the same day). A bargain at $35:

Run and tell that.
