Antoine Dodson snags a reality show. What other viral video stars should get a series?

Hide yo’ kids from the TV set, PopWatchers. The reports are true: An Antoine Dodson reality show is currently in the works. According to “leading international entertainment content and distribution business” Entertainment One — which confirms to EW that it is developing a pilot starring Dodson — “The show tracks Antoine, the oldest of six siblings, using the money he is making from his hit song on iTunes and his best-selling Halloween costume to make a fresh start for the Dodson clan on the West Coast. With a potential new record deal in the works and money coming in from a variety of avenues, the show tracks how a news story sparked a new life for him and his family.”

Naturally, this news got me thinking about other viral video stars who I would watch on the small screen. And, for your ease, TV producers, I’ve even gone through the trouble of developing the plot and title for you. Let’s do this, Leroy

  • Grape Stomp Lady: The newswoman famous for taking a nasty tumble while attempting to squash grapes travels to Napa Valley, where she opens a winery. The one caveat: In order to sell her wine, she must go through a series of Wipeout-esque obstacle courses in order to get to her grapes. Providing commentary for the show, of course, will be two pseudo-sympathetic news colleagues. Title: Grapes of Wrath
  • Dramatic Prairie Dog: After years of being unfairly pegged an evil genius, Dramatic Prairie Dog sets out to prove to the world that he is far from evil, and is just a cuddly, cute, anim — why, yes, that is a picture of him with Dick Cheney, what of it? Title: D.P.D.’s Road to Redemption
  • “So She’s Enjoying Penis” anchor: New Orleans news anchor Michael Hill is searching for love in the Big Easy with plenty of, ahem, easy ladies. Title: Are You Enjoying My Penis?
  • Double Rainbow guy: Paul “Bear” Vasquez hosts a series that challenges a pool of 10 contestants to take some hallucinogens, spin around 10 times with their head on a baseball bat, and attempt to buy a pack of Skittles. Prize: That talking unicorn they saw sail over the glitter patch on their way to the 7-11. Title: The Surreal Life (We’ll deal with copyright issues later.)
  • Surprise Kitty: Just Surprise Kitty. On a loop. Non-stop. For hours. Title: Who Wants to Feel Pure Bliss?

Your turn, PopWatchers: Create your own reality show for a viral video star!

    Is this what we’ve come to?? I have to admit, I cracked up at the video, and the song, but an entire show with a Beverly Hillbillies approach (loadin’ up the truck and movin’ to Beverly)? I don’t know…

      Blacks are easy to recycle. There will be another freak soon just be patient

    The “Star Wars Kid” apparently just graduated from law school. He’s lost weight and apparently is doing very well. I’d love to see a legal reality show where he is out there advocating on behalf of kids who are somehow victimized by people using the internet. From “Star Wars Kid” to “Warrior for Kids.”

    A record deal? Does he realize that he cant ACTUALLY sing or rap? He is the creation of two men with too much time on their hands.
    This is sad. It was funny for a few minutes, but now he needs to go away.

    I know it’s a cartoon but I’d like to see “Llamas with hats” as a regular 1/2 hr series.

    I think finding who was the bed intruder after all would be a better plot than movie to LA. Anywho, good for him.
