People Who Became Classic Internet Memes

Let's go back to the "classics".

Here are three cases of people who become internet celebrities and whom, surprisingly, I haven't featured here previously.

Starting with this lady, who became an internet sensation after she described her harrowing escape from a fire.

1) Sweet Brown - Ain't Nobody Got Time For That!

This guy also became famous following an interview on a local news channel.

2) Antoine Dodson - They're Raping Everybody Out Here!

Antoine Dodson capitalized on his success by selling t-shirts and merchandise containing his quotes, as well as receiving royalties from the "Bed Intruder Song" sold through iTunes.

In January 2010, Youtube user Hungrybear9562 (real name Paul Vasquez) uploaded a video of himself sounding rather ecstatic at the sight of a double rainbow at Yosemite National Park.
The video was "discovered" and went viral 7 months later.

3) Hungrybear9562 - Double Rainbow (All The Way)
