When the three women who were held captive in Cleveland,Ohio were saved by a neighbor, Charles Ramsey, the rescuer fame has gone viral over the internet. Amanda Berry who went missing 10 years ago the day before her 17th birthday was helped by the new internet star, Charles Ramsey, who heard her call for help. Amanda was not alone in the house. She was held captive along with two other girls. Thankfully, Charles heard their cry for help and called 911.
Charles was interview when the police came and his speech has gone viral all over the internet.
“I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man’s arms. Something is wrong here. Dead giveaway.”
His choice of words had made him not only a hero, but also a star. It is a matter of minutes today for something to go viral on the internet today. Sometimes, it happens even without any control. Things just happen on the internet.
“The Internet likes to celebrate our heroes,” said Ben Huh, CEO of The Cheezburger Network . A video of Ramsey was the top item on the site Wednesday. “In our own way, this is our celebration of Charles Ramsey.”
Of course, there was the inevitable auto-tune. The Gregory Brothers, known for “Bed Intruder,” “Double Rainbow” and other Internet-famous videos have contributed to making Ramsey famous with the Dead Giveaway video. This video is much like the Bed Intruder because of the likeness of the two characters. Both Antoine and Charles saved someone, and they both have a special way of speaking, which makes me laugh in a good way.
For those who didn’t see the Bed intruder, here is the video, it is very funny.
Ramsey is off to a good start because today, the web loves him. Hopefully, he can be used to do some advertisement for McDonald’s or another company, because using him will be legit.
