Video: NC A&T covers "Bed Intruder"

Posted By on Fri, Aug 13, 2010 at 3:57 PM

I remember being excited to play "Louie, Louie" in middle school band class, fast forward over a decade and college marching bands are now covering viral video parody songs, quite nicely I might add.

You may have been one of the more than 10 million people to have seen Antione Dodson's news package, where he talked to reporters about saving his sister from a potential rapist in Huntsville, Ala., and the subsequent Auto-Tune the News remix, well North Carolina A&T's Blue & Gold Marching Machine broke up the grueling monotony of band camp to take a stab at their rendition of that YouTube parody.

Their version, shot in the band room, actually makes it sound like something from the radio and has nearly 60 thousand views in less than two days. Arranger Thomas L. Jones Jr. made a point to say this is only a practice/reading session, not the final product.

Full disclosure: I'm a graduate of North Carolina A&T.

The song is now available on iTunes, see the original "Bed Intruder" here. Check out the cover below. Hide your kids, hide your wife! Run tell that!
